Please keep reading to learn more about your case and then give our office a call to set up a free consultation. We would be happy to represent you.
Choosing A Mesothelioma Lawyer to Prove Your Case
What needs to happen when you get diagnosed with mesothelioma and you believe it was due to exposure to asbestos is you need to try to find a lawyer who is going to be able to prove that you are entitled to compensation for your injuries.
What makes you entitled to compensation is having been at a workplace that knowingly exposed you to asbestos. This could have happened decades ago and your symptoms may not have presented until many years after you worked there. This does not preclude you from seeking justice and we can help you navigate an asbestos exposure claim against a former employer, even if they are no longer in business.
You may have seen commercials for lawyers who defend mesothelioma cases on a national level and think that they would be the best mesothelioma lawyer for you. However, we want you to understand one very vital factor about your case. If you cannot prove that your workplace from many years ago exposed you to asbestos, you are going to have an incredibly hard time proving that you deserve compensation for your injuries.
Our lawyers work for our community. We have spent decades gathering information that you need about just about every single asbestos-related workplace in Western New York and the places that manufactured and utilized asbestos products. The lawyers who work on the national level do not have this information carefully gathered for our community, and it’s this information that can be crucial in proving your claim.
Let’s say you think your exposure happened thirty years ago at a worksite in Western New York. We likely have information about this employer and workplace, including the vendors, manufacturers and contractors they used. National lawyers are not likely to have the depth of information we have compiled over the decades about the specific job sites in Western New York that exposed workers to asbestos. Without this information, obtaining justice will be much more difficult.
Our Local Mesothelioma Lawyers Will Come To You
Another way we differentiate ourselves from the national law firms is that we are likely a quick drive away from you. We aren’t practicing in some state hundreds of miles away. We are right here in your community. That means we can come to your home to work with you. We can take your testimony in the comfort of your own home. You won’t have to run off to the courts every time they need deposition from you.
National law firms are not going to be able to be so easily accessible to you. They won’t be able to hop in the car and be at your home in a few minutes to obtain your deposition. You likely won’t be able to have the same strong relationship with a national law firm that you can with someone who is dedicated to protecting your own community.
Furthermore, if you were injured in New York but have retired to another state, we will get on a plane and come to you in the comfort of your own home to discuss your case. We want to eliminate as much of the burden as we can so you can focus on whats most important; your health, family and faith.
