Legal Rights of Mesothelioma Victims
Many of the manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers of asbestos and asbestos-containing products knew about the dangers of asbestos-including the very fact that asbestos caused terminal cancer-as early as the 1930s. Despite this knowledge, these companies did not warn workers or consumers of the dangers of asbestos and, therefore, intentionally prevented workers from taking the necessary precautions to protect themselves and their loved ones.
If you have Mesothelioma, asbestosis, asbestos-related lung cancer, or any other any other disease caused by exposure to asbestos, the attorneys of the Deaton Law Firm can help you obtain financial compensation for your medical bills, and provide the funds to seek aggressive-and expensive-treatments. In addition, we will seek compensation for your pain and suffering, lost income, and for the loss of the future you would have enjoyed, if you had not been exposed to asbestos. We also represent the family members of those who have died of asbestos-related diseases.
We want you to know two things about Mesothelioma lawsuits:
1. These are necessary lawsuits.
Nearly everyone agrees that there are far too many frivolous lawsuits in this country. However, if you have Mesothelioma or any other asbestos-related disease, you have a well-established legal right to file a lawsuit. The American civil justice system was designed to protect people who have suffered significant harm due to the negligence or wrongdoing of others. There is no more valid claim of injury than the loss of life caused by corporate negligence and greed.
2. The legal process will not interfere with your treatment or monopolize your life.
An attorney from our firm will interview you and describe what we can do for you. Once your case is filed, an attorney will take a brief deposition-a formal interview about the circumstances of your case. That's all you have to do. We understand that this is a difficult time for you and your family. We do our work as unobtrusively as possible
To learn if we can be of assistance to you, please contact our law firm today to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation. We represent clients on a contingency basis, so you will pay no attorneys' fees unless we win your case.
From our office in Providence, our Mesothelioma lawyers represent clients in Rhode Island, Florida, Philadelphia, and throughout the nation.
About the Legal Process
Mesothelioma can be physically, emotionally, and financially devastating to you and your family. How will you pay for the medical care and aggressive treatments you need? How will your family survive financially when you are gone?
A Mesothelioma lawsuit can provide you with the funds you need to get the best medical care available and to give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your family will be provided for in the future.
Step by Step
The legal process will not be burdensome or expensive for you or your family members when you retain the Deaton Law Firm. First, we will talk to you about the circumstances of your case either by phone or at your home. If you choose to retain us as your legal representative, we will thoroughly research your case, identify the responsible parties, evaluate the damages you have suffered, and file a claim for the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled.
Our founder, attorney John Deaton, will take a brief deposition-a formal interview for the legal record. That's all you have to do.
If the Mesothelioma victim is still alive, the trial date will be expedited. Most cases are settled in less than one year.
Because we are experienced and successful Mesothelioma lawyers, we know how to build a solid case and negotiate to obtain a positive result. Attorney Deaton has successfully pursued more than 100 Mesothelioma cases. While some law firms focus on quantity of cases, our goal is to take fewer cases but obtain the maximum possible amount of financial compensation for our clients and their family members.
Nearly all of these cases settle outside of court because the responsible parties know they are liable. However, we are excellent trial attorneys who are fully prepared to take your case before a judge and jury, if that is the best way to obtain the best result for you.
It Costs You Nothing Unless We Win
We represent clients on a contingency basis. That means we pay all the up-front costs, and you pay no attorney fees unless we win your case. The contingency fee arrangement allows average citizens who could not afford to pay an attorney's hourly fee to stand up to multi-billion dollar corporations with their large legal staffs and seemingly unlimited resources.
If you or a member of your family has Mesothelioma, please contact our law firm today to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation. It is important to act quickly in order to file your lawsuit before the statute of limitation runs out.
