Brooklyn Mesothelioma Lawyer
If asbestos exposure has left you dealing with a cancer diagnosis, you might have grounds to seek financial compensation. Find out by speaking with a Brooklyn mesothelioma lawyer.
Like other forms of cancer, mesothelioma causes many health complications and can easily lead to death. Unlike many cancers, the contraction of mesothelioma can often be traced to its cause, which will generally involve exposure to the toxic substance asbestos.
Once you’ve been diagnosed, your journey is just beginning. In addition to undergoing medical care, you’ll have to deal with insurance companies, legal battles, and financial burdens. The good news is that you don’t have to go through everything alone when you hire a Brooklyn mesothelioma lawyer from Greenstein & Milbauer, LLP.
Hiring a lawyer allows you to fight through all the red tape that accompanies these cases and obtain the maximum compensation available for your claim. The majority of the work will be handled by your attorney, so you can focus on the things that are truly important.
Investigating Your Case
Contact with asbestos is the leading cause of mesothelioma. It’s possible that you may have been exposed in the workplace, in your home, or through secondhand contact. One of the most important pieces of information is how you contracted mesothelioma in the first place. Once that has been determined, we’ll need to identify who was responsible so that you can name them in your claim.
For example, if you have been exposed to asbestos while at work, there may be multiple parties responsible:
- Your Employer – If they sent you to work in areas that contained asbestos without proper safety equipment
- The Property Owner – If they allowed work to be done without clearing the area of asbestos or warning your employer first
- The Asbestos Manufacturer – The manufacturer could be held responsible for creating a toxic substance
Dealing with any of the potential at-fault parties can be difficult because they likely have their own insurance companies and lawyers. Our experienced Brooklyn mesothelioma lawyers know how to handle these entities and will fight for maximum compensation on your behalf.
Compensation for Mesothelioma
As mesothelioma is an aggressive cancer that is both incurable and difficult to treat, you’ll almost certainly encounter a number of financial expenses and substantial lost quality of life. Living with mesothelioma is not easy, and you deserve to be compensated for the impact that it has on your life, future, and finances.
These are just a few examples of damages you might be able to recover:
- Medical bills, current and future
- Loss of quality of life
- Lost wages and earning ability
- Transportation expenses
- Emotional and mental distress
- Pain and suffering
