The high-profile nature of mesothelioma claims can be a public relations nightmare to companies facing individual and class action lawsuits from employees alleging exposure to dangerous asbestos. Plaintiffs’ attorneys take to the airwaves, encouraging people to call them with the promise of financial compensation for:
- Medical and life-care expenses, including travel expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Getting To The Facts In Emotionally Charged Cases
In defending our clients accused of putting their workers in harm’s way, we determine not only the causal relationships between the specific building where asbestos exposure allegedly occurred, but also the specific illness suffered by former employees or nearby residents. Simply stated, our clients are entitled to tell their side of the story to counter presumptions that they are responsible for life-changing, if not fatal diseases.
In mesothelioma cases, determining actual damages presents challenges on both sides. While medical bills can help tabulate expenses, intangible costs are a factor as well. Teaming with medical experts respected in their field helps us get to the facts. They can match their skills and experience against the most seasoned “experts” on the plaintiff’s side.
Mesothelioma cases combine legal complexities with emotionally charged issues. Building a strong case for defendants does not mean tearing down the opposing side. The job of our attorneys is to get to the facts and protect our clients’ interests and reputations, not minimize the impact of a very serious illness.
