Our Rochester Mesothelioma Trial Attorneys Stand Ready to Help You
Asbestos litigation is our firm’s primary practice area. Asbestos was commonly used in industrial, construction, commercial and household products for many decades — despite its carcinogenic health effects. Asbestos has been proven to cause mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and other life-threatening illnesses.

Our Top-Rated Lawyers Explain What to Expect
Our top-rated Belluck & Fox Rochester lawyers work with mesothelioma patients and their families to review all options for pursuing compensation. Even though not every case requires filing a lawsuit, it’s important for our clients to have a general understanding of the process so they know what to expect.
Start with a free case consultation
We will send a lawyer to meet with you and your family wherever you are ─ at home, in the hospital or at a caregiver’s house. During this initial meeting, we’ll discuss your diagnosis, treatment options, and your work or service history in the military. We will also answer all your questions.
Your attorney will launch an investigation to prepare your case
Our experienced asbestoslegal services team will conduct a thorough investigation based on what you remember about where you worked or served (if you are a veteran), as well as the types of products you handled or were used around you. This will help us pinpoint which companies are responsible for your exposure.
Your attorney will file a complaint with the court
Once your mesothelioma lawyer has gathered the evidence necessary to prove how and when you were exposed to asbestos, he or she will file a formal complaint. This complaint will include details about your diagnosis and treatment, as well as the names of the companies or other parties from which you are demanding compensation. You generally will not be suing an employer or the military. Rather, the complaint will target manufacturers, distributors, suppliers, and installers of asbestos materials.
Both sides will exchange information during the discovery process
Your attorney may record an interview with you — known as a deposition — to ask you questions about the case. This deposition can be done at a place that is convenient for you, so you do not have to travel to court. Your attorney may also interview former coworkers, medical experts and life care planners. All of this information will be shared with the defendants during the discovery process to show how strong your case for compensation is.
You may be offered a settlement, or your mesothelioma lawsuit may head to trial
A majority of mesothelioma cases end in full and fair settlements because the defendants don’t want to risk going to trial. However, there are some cases where your attorney may advise you to take your case before a judge or a jury to demand the maximum compensation you deserve.
In some cases, you may face an appeal
Successful mesothelioma lawsuits can result in patients and their families receiving extremely large compensation amounts. Naturally, some companies try to appeal those decisions. When considering a mesothelioma law firm to handle your situation, you should make sure the firm has an experienced mesothelioma appellate attorney on the team.
