Frequently Asked Questions
After receiving a mesothelioma diagnosis, patients and families typically have a lot of questions about what to do next. At Belluck & Fox, our knowledgeable mesothelioma lawyers are here to answer your questions and tell you what you need to know about pursuing full financial compensation.
To help educate you on what to expect, here are some of the questions people frequently ask our lawyers:
What if I don’t know what company is responsible for my asbestos exposure?
A mesothelioma attorney from our firm will go over your work history or time spent in the military to help identify when, where and how you were exposed to asbestos. Because we focus on this area of law, we already have a large amount of records on the companies that manufactured asbestos products and job sites where asbestos was used. This prior research will help us identify who should be held accountable for your disease.
Our legal team may also talk with your former co-workers or service members to find out what they recall about the asbestos materials that were used at the time.
Will I need to go to court as part of an asbestos claim?
No. First, you should know that the majority of asbestos lawsuits are resolved with out-of-court settlements. And if your case must go to trial, our legal team will make sure that you do not have to travel to appear in court. We understand the severity of your health situation, and our firm will take all the appropriate measures to accommodate you and your family.
Can your firm help me even if I am receiving workers’ compensation benefits?
Even if you are already receiving workers’ comp benefits for mesothelioma, you can pursue additional payment through a personal injury claim. The best way to understand your options is to schedule a free consultation with one of our knowledgeable mesothelioma lawyers to go over the specific circumstances of your case.
In addition to the benefits you are already receiving, mesothelioma compensation from a settlement, verdict or trust fund claim can significantly help you and your family.
How much does your law firm charge for services?
Our law firm handles all asbestos claims a contingency-fee basis. This contingency fee is an agreed-upon percentage of the total amount our law firm eventually recovers for you. If our lawyers do not win payment for you, we do not get paid ourselves.
This arrangement means that you do not have to pay any money upfront to start a claim, and there is no risk because you only pay us if we recover compensation for you.
If you have additional questions about the mesothelioma claims process, please contact our law firm today. One of the partners at our firm will personally discuss your case with you and lay out all your options for recovering compensation. Our team is here to help you get the answers you need to make smart decisions for you and your family’s future.
What to Look for When Choosing an Asbestos Lawyer
There is no shortage of law firms out there that will accept a mesothelioma case. However, it is crucial that you choose a firm that is qualified to handle these types of complex claims. We urge you to ask questions such as:
- How long have you been focused on asbestos and mesothelioma cases?
- How many mesothelioma cases have you handled and what were the results?
- How many cases have you tried to verdict?
- What is your experience handling appeals in asbestos cases?
- How does the contingency-fee agreement work?
- How frequently will I be communicating with my lawyer? And will I be talking directly with my attorney, or will I be working mainly with a case manager or paralegal?
- How long will my mesothelioma case take, and can you do anything to expedite it?
- If a patient dies before a case is resolved, can you still help the family?
- Do you represent families who have lost loved ones to mesothelioma and need to file a wrongful death claim?
At Belluck & Fox, we must be selective in the cases we accept so we can devote our full attention to each client. This means that if we accept your case, you can trust that we will put all our manpower and resources to work for you.
