Asbestos Mesothelioma Lawsuits
From the Mesothelioma Lawyers at The Moody Law Firm
It is critical to obtain a deposition of the individual with any type of mesothelioma including malignant mesothelioma, pleural mesothelioma, peritoneal mesothelioma, or pericardial mesothelioma as soon as possible after diagnosis of the disease. This is important in order to preserve the first hand testimony of their work history and exposure to asbestos products. The first thing that must be done is to gather a detailed work history from the individual to identify work sites and time frames of exposure. Then a detailed analysis of the various types of asbestos products they worked around or with at each of the workplaces must be performed. Unfortunately, many mesothelioma victims may have already died before The Moody Law Firm is retained. In this case an investigation to identify and obtain statements from co-workers must occur as soon as possible.
Mesothelioma cancer is frankly one of the most devastating diseases imaginable and currently there is no cure for mesothelioma. Let our dedicated and experienced mesothelioma attorneys ensure you or your family receives the best financial settlement available. Contact us today.
