Selecting an asbestos attorney can be a daunting task, especially while you are dealing with the effects of a serious disease.
Since 1984, the asbestos attorneys at Brayton Purcell, L.L.P., have been extensively involved in protecting the legal rights of asbestos victims, including injured workers and their families. Many of our clients suffer from asbestosis, mesothelioma, asbestos lung cancer, or other asbestos–related diseases. We are there for them, providing support and understanding, as well as legal advocacy.
Advocating For Asbestos Victims And Their Families For More Than 30 Years
Our AV-rated* law firm seeks compensation for our clients to the full extent allowed by law. This includes damages for pain, suffering, loss of wages and medical expenses. We also pursue compensation for families who have lost a loved one due to asbestos exposure.
If a company that is involved with asbestos goes through bankruptcy, we continue to fight for our client's rights. We oppose efforts by otherwise solvent companies to avoid their responsibilities to the very people they have harmed the most.
Choosing An Asbestos Attorney
There are a number of important factors to keep in mind in making this decision:
- Be sure your prospective asbestos or mesothelioma attorney will actually file your case and not simply send it off to another attorney.
- Be sure your prospective asbestos lawyer has extensive experience taking asbestos lawsuits to trial and winning.
- It is important to select a lawyer who has the necessary resources onsite to prove your mesothelioma or asbestos case. This includes a law firm who employs their own in-house investigative team and that has created a jobsite database that tracks the different products, contractors and suppliers that their clients have encountered. These historical databases can aid new clients in remembering what happened at jobsites many years prior. It is also important for the attorney you select to have thorough knowledge and full data on workplace exposures, asbestos product identification, scientific and medical depositions, etc.
- Ask what other support services the firm can provide, such as estate planning, will or living trust preparation and probate.
