How Our Woodstock Mesothelioma Trial Attorneys Can Help You
For decades, asbestos was commonly used in commercial, industrial, construction and household products — despite being known as a dangerous carcinogen. The companies that manufactured asbestos products knew of these dangers, but they failed to warn workers and consumers.
Asbestos has been shown to cause mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and other life-threatening illnesses. Now, people who were exposed to the toxic fibers decades ago are still being diagnosed with asbestos-related diseases.
Our law firm’s primary practice area is asbestos litigation. Our knowledgeable Belluck & Fox Woodstock trial attorneys have spent more than 20 years helping asbestos victims and their families get justice for the harm they have suffered. As a client, you can trust our savvy legal team to:
- Provide a free consultation to answer all questions and explain all options

Our Top-Rated Lawyers Explain What to Expect
At Belluck & Fox, our dedicated Woodstock lawyers work closely with mesothelioma patients and their families, reviewing all options for pursuing compensation. Although not every case requires filing a lawsuit, we think it is important for clients to understand how we work so they know what to expect.
Start with a free case evaluation
We will send a knowledgeable mesothelioma lawyer to meet with you and your family wherever is most convenient for you ─ at home, in the hospital, or at a caregiver’s house. We take your health seriously; you should not have to travel for a consultation. During this initial meeting, we will discuss your diagnosis, symptoms, treatment options and your work history, as well as any military service.
Your attorney will launch an investigation to prepare your case
A mesothelioma diagnosis can come 15 to 60 years after a person was exposed to asbestos. That’s why our experienced Woodstock legal services team conducts a thorough investigation based on what you remember about where you worked or where you served, as well as the types of products you handled or that were around you. This helps pinpoint which companies are responsible for your asbestos exposure.
Your attorney will file a complaint with the court
Once we have gathered the evidence necessary to prove how and when you were exposed to asbestos, we will file a complaint with the court. This 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. Please note, in these cases, we’re generally not suing an employer or the military. Rather, a mesothelioma lawsuit targets manufacturers, suppliers and distributors of asbestos materials.
Both sides will exchange information during the discovery process
Your trial attorney may record an interview with you — called a deposition — to ask you questions about the case. Again, this interview can be done at a place convenient for you, so you do not have to travel for court. Your attorney may also interview former coworkers, medical experts and life care planners to provide support for your case. All 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
Most mesothelioma cases that are handled by strong trial attorneys end in full and fair settlements because the defendants simply don’t want to risk facing off in court. In some cases, your attorney may advise you to take your case before a judge or jury to demand the maximum verdict or judgment 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. So companies may try to appeal those decisions. That’s why Belluck & Fox has an experienced mesothelioma appellate attorney on our team.
