How Difficult is It to Win a Mesothelioma Case?
It’s not very difficult to win Mesothelioma cases because there is an enormous body of scientists who agree that the most common cause of Mesothelioma in North America is the exposure to asbestos. The question you have to ask is, how was the person exposed? Were they a pipe fitter? A boilermaker? An electrical worker? Did they work around power houses? Chemical plants? Industrial facilities where asbestos insulation was used?
What Factors Lead to a Successful Verdict and Settlement?
If you have a good exposure history and you know what products the person worked with or were around – you have a very high likelihood of succeeding in your case. Not all asbestos products cases are the same, not all asbestos exposure is the same. You have a very good likelihood of obtaining substantial settlements on your behalf and your family members because unfortunately Mesothelioma is a very aggressive cancer and almost always fatal.
How Does the Segal Law Firm Protect a Worker and His or Her Family?
We work very closely with the worker and the family to protect them and get them good settlements, sometimes in the millions of dollars. We are able to do that because we have literally tens of thousands of depositions of workers who know where and what asbestos products were used throughout the industrial facilities in West Virginia, the Ohio River Valley, including all of the power houses and chemical plants. We are able to establish the link pretty well between what asbestos products a worker was exposed to in their career and that caused the disease. Those are the essential elements of what is going to make an asbestos/Mesothelioma case a winner.
I personally have tried Mesothelioma cases in West Virginia all the way to verdict and I have had every different type of worker that you can imagine. I had an elevator worker who developed the disease due to the elevator shaft working as a chimney flue. The asbestos dust flew up that elevator shaft while he was building it.
