To prove asbestos exposure, you must trace the date and locations in which a person was at risk. Repeated or long-term exposure to asbestos directly influences the occurrence of mesothelioma. If liability is found it’s not uncommon for mesothelioma settlements to exceed one million dollars. A prolonged incubation period can complicate pinpointing the exact exposure in a court of law. You will need undeniable evidence that can withstand the defendant's legal team. The longer you wait, the lower your chances are of proving liability. Warshafsky has an on-staff doctor who is also a lawyer to help you recover damages. No fee until you are compensated.

No-win-no-fee mesothelioma lawyers
Mesothelioma victims can quickly incur incredible debts due to diseases. Treatments for cancer are expensive. Even with medical insurance, the out-of-pocket and upfront costs will add up fast. Other expenses will include pain and suffering, loss of income and possible travel costs for treatment centers. This often fatal cancer strikes quickly, often yielding a life expectancy between 8-18 months. Despite asbestos being banned in the late 1970s, cases of mesothelioma continue to escalate. This rise can be attributed to the often long period of time between exposure and the onset of symptoms. The prolonged incubation period of mesothelioma often complicates pinpointing the exact exposure source.
