The kind of experience a lawyer has, both in and out of the courtroom, is critical in mesothelioma cases. Your lawyer needs to understand the medicine and the history of the disease and have the experience to prove that knowledge to a judge and jury.
Does he or she know the medical history of mesothelioma? In North America, mesothelioma is almost exclusively causes by exposure to asbestos. But how did the exposure occur? How long had the companies using asbestos known of the dangers?
In fact, many of the companies that used asbestos as a part of their products and processes knew for decades how dangerous asbestos was. Your attorney has to know that historical medicine so that they can prove that your mesothelioma is due to your exposure to asbestos.
It’s also important than your attorney be familiar with the modern day medicine associated with mesothelioma. You can’t taste it or smell it. The part of the asbestos that will hurt you is invisible to the human eye. It’s a very aerodynamic fiber. Your attorney has got to know the history of how the workers and their families were exposed to asbestos, sometimes thirty or forty years ago.
I’ve been trying mesothelioma cases for well over twenty-five years now. I’ve tried practically every trade that has suffered from mesothelioma; steel workers, pipe fitters, boilermakers, insulators, spouses and children. There’s not a lot that I haven’t seen in my career in regards to how people were exposed to asbestos and then how that exposure led to the development of mesothelioma.
