These lawyers have the competence to win major lawsuits to the tune of close to a million dollars in some situations. Please note each case is treated individually and some cases will fall in a lower lawsuit bracket closer to the 50 – 100 thousand-dollar range.
To build your case you will need:
A complete working history including all the places you worked, how long you worked and how you were exposed to asbestos.
Your complete medical history including, doctor visits, test results, treatment history and response to treatment, lab reports, biopsy samples, surgery results, pathology reports, staging and diagnosis, billing invoices, cost of and receipts for medications, miscellaneous medical expenses, and more.
You will need personal information such as your social security number, address, birth certificate etc.
You will also need to provide any other information where you feel you may have been exposed to asbestos, such as living in older buildings, working in older buildings such as schools, living with a spouse who worked in the asbestos industry etc.
As you can see these investigations are extensive and must be handled quickly by a qualified mesothelioma lawyer.
