“My answer to the problem is: If you have enjoyed a good life while working with asbestos products, why not die from it.” That’s what one asbestos industry executive wrote to another in 1966, records show.(1)

That notorious industry memo has been used by many to highlight how corporations favored profits over the health — and very often the lives — of workers who were being exposed to asbestos. Today, national law firms like Weitz & Luxenberg help asbestos victims obtain the compensation they deserve while holding companies accountable. Some of the most significant financial victories for victims have been the result of mesothelioma litigation.

How Mesothelioma Litigation Can Help You

Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer that’s tied to job-related activities. The deadly disease is preventable, but many asbestos companies ignored the dangerous effects of asbestos exposure and some even hid the potential hazards from their employees and their consumers. This negligence and recklessness has left victims angry, ill, financially depleted, and has caused some victims’ deaths.

If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with or died from mesothelioma cancer, litigation may be right for you. With the help of skilled mesothelioma attorneys, asbestos victims and their families have won substantial verdicts.

Mesothelioma Litigation Steps

Typically, once you file a mesothelioma lawsuit you can expect several steps to follow: response to the lawsuit, discovery, depositions, settlement discussions, possible trial, verdict, and possible appeal. The right mesothelioma attorney will try to resolve the case as quickly as possible.
If your case goes to trial, the verdict, or the outcome of your claim, is decided by a judge and jury. You should expect a routine that consists of:

1. Arguments — The jury listens to all the testimony, looks at the evidence, and considers the arguments offered by both sides.
2. Deliberation — Jurors deliberate among themselves.
3. Decision — Jurors decide whether the defendants are liable for the injuries you have suffered.
4. Compensation — If liability is found, the jury then decides how much money you should receive in compensation.
5. Court Order — The judge, acting in the interest of justice, enters an order requiring the defendants to pay their share of either the sum determined by the jurors, or a higher or lower dollar amount.
