If you have developed mesothelioma because of asbestos exposure, you will want to hire a qualified Florida personal injury attorney. A good attorney is important if you want to ensure that you get the compensation you are entitled to under the law. A fair settlement is crucial if you want to provide for your family and get quality care.
The Wall Street Journal reports that many mesothelioma awards in mesothelioma settlements are about $1 million. If the case goes to court, the settlement may be several times larger than that, and your Florida lawyer will receive about 40% of the amount to cover legal fees. Although most Florida personal injury attorneys will not take money up front, if you win your case or settle out of court your attorney’s fees will come from the proceeds of settlement. You will want to choose a good attorney so that you can get a fair settlement that will allow you to pay your legal fees and still enjoy a generous reward.
Choosing the right personal injury attorney for your mesothelioma case can mean the difference between a settlement that can help you and your family and a settlement that does not allow you to enjoy good medical care. The first important quality you will want to look for in a personal injury attorney is passion for their job. Attorneys are eager to see justice in mesothelioma cases because they know that companies producing asbestos products have known for 6 decades that the product was dangerous. However, these companies kept this information quiet in order to increase profits. Good attorneys are rightfully angered by this form of injustice and work tirelessly to ensure that it is corrected.
When choosing a personal injury lawyer for your mesothelioma case, find an attorney who has handled a number of mesothelioma cases. An experienced mesothelioma lawyer knows how to handle a case successfully. In addition to experience, you will want to look for an attorney who has shown results in pursuing mesothelioma cases. That is, you will want an attorney who has seen many cases go to trial and who has been able to secure many fair settlements for his or her clients. Ideally, find an attorney who specializes in mesothelioma cases.
When selecting your mesothelioma attorney, be sure to ask whether the attorney you are interested in having represent your case will handle your case him or herself. Some Florida lawyers will refer your case to another law firm, which can be a problem since you will not have much control over who represents you.
In addition to these traits, you will want to look for an attorney who listens to your concerns and is available for meetings. A good attorney will be able to meet with you when it is convenient for you and will return your phone calls promptly.
