The knowledge which was necessary to prevent asbestos diseases from occurring existed as far back as the 1930’s. California law allows individuals who develop asbestos diseases, even from exposure in the distant past, to sue and receive compensation from the responsible companies. The law in California allows us to obtain early trial dates for individuals with mesothelioma, in order that our lawyers can frequently completely resolve a case within 6 months or less. California law imposes responsibility on the companies that sold defective products for the injuries caused by their products.
California juries, especially in LA, Alameda and San Francisco, California Counties, have repeatedly awarded large verdicts for mesothelioma victims and their families. This record of large jury verdicts provides motivation for asbestos companies to settle cases before trial. Mesothelioma is a very serious form of cancer-related to asbestos exposure, and families who’ve been touched by mesothelioma have many challenges ahead. Whatever treatment options a mesothelioma patient selects, treatment is expensive.
A mesothelioma diagnosis can frequently mean financial hardship without some sort of legal assistance. Our experienced mesothelioma lawyers might help provide fast compensation to California families impacted by mesothelioma. The financial resources we make available allow our clients to concentrate on fighting mesothelioma, beating the odds, and enjoying time with family members.
