The Walker Law Firm is quickly becoming a leader in Mesothelioma litigation in the southeast because it involves personal injury. We take a two pronged approach when it comes to serving our clients. The first thing we do is make sure that they are getting the best treatment possible. We typically recommend that they are evaluated at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts or MD Anderson in Houston, Texas. Many of the physicians that work with Mesothelioma patients have been listed below for your review. Each name links to a video or biography outlining the experience of the selected doctor. All of these doctors are the best in the world in fighting this awful disease.
According to a recent Mealey’s Litigation report, the average Mesothelioma settlement is between $1 Million and $1.4 Million with the average recovery after a trial being $3.14 Million.
What Happens If I Have Mesothelioma?
Next we work on their claims paying careful attention to their work and life history to properly determine where they were exposed to asbestos. There are so many industries, manufacturers and products that have worked with asbestos in the past that it is impossible to list those here. We would be glad to speak to you directly about where exposure may have occurred.
Nearly all Mesothelioma cases could have been prevented by avoiding direct and secondary exposure to asbestos. Companies using asbestos knew as early as the 1930s that the use of asbestos was dangerous and possibly fatal to those who worked around it. We later found out that secondary exposure was occurring when workers exposed to asbestos came home and gave their dirty clothes to their wives for washing. It was at this point that wives were exposed to the asbestos fibers and many have subsequently developed Mesothelioma.
What Does the Case Look Like?
Outcomes in Mesothelioma cases vary based upon the age of the client and where we are able to determine their asbestos exposure occurred. If you or a loved one has recently been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, please contact us to discuss treatment options as well as a free case evaluation.
The Walker Law Firm associates legal counsel in another state to assist with prosecuting their cases. This law firm is based in a location with a Special Mesothelioma Docket, this is favorable to the outcome we desire for our clients and as a result hundreds of millions of dollars in judgments and settlements are achieved at this one location.
