Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. If you have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, you may have a claim against the party responsible for exposing you to the asbestos. You have a limited amount of time to pursue your claim, so you should find an attorney as soon as possible, after your diagnosis. To find a qualified mesothelioma attorney for a case of Mesothelioma if you worked at Wheeling Pitt Mingo Junction (South Plant) and have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma, ask yourself these questions:
- Do I want to actually know the lawyer handling my case? If the answer is yes, keep reading.
- Do I want a lawyer who has been investigating cases since 1988 rather than one who makes TV ads and has little experience in the actual procedures handling a case? If the answer is yes, keep reading.
- Do I want a lawyer or firm that is truly knowledgeable about where you worked? If the answer is yes, keep reading.
Do I want my attorney to investigate all viable responsible parties and not limiting my claim to filing bankruptcy claims? If the answer is yes, keep reading.
There are very few lawyers involved in West Virginia Asbestos Litigation today, that have more experience in the field as myself. I have spoken and represented to people involved with the entire steel making process at Wheeling Pitt Steel Mingo Junction (South Plant). My representation in the past includes the tradesmen and production workers in their cases. I have represented summer employees that later developed fatal mesothelioma from brief exposure while working summer jobs at Wheeling Pitt Steel Mingo Junction (South Plant). I know who built the plant and installed asbestos. I know which equipment components contain asbestos and more importantly, which do not contain asbestos. Comprehensive knowledge of the steel making process is paramount in complex West Virginia Mesothelioma Cases. I remember when I was a paralegal attending one of the first asbestos trials in Ohio presided over by Judge Mascio of Jefferson County, OH.
There is a lot of advertising for Mesothelioma cases and Asbestos Lung Cancer Cases, when you answer their ad, is the lawyer knowledgeable about the area you live? What happens if you were exposed to your parents clothes at home and now are diagnosed with Mesothelioma? Has that attorney had success filing claims of innocent family members stricken with asbestos related lung cancer or Mesothelioma?
Attorneys may wish to file only bankruptcy claims or limited claims in far off jurisdictions or states because the attorney that came to your living room is either not familiar with your trade or the work sites where you were exposed you to asbestos. It is not easy to accumulate case by case specific evidence in a Mesothelioma or Asbestos Lung Cancer case, but to be fully compensated in today’s complex litigation environment, each potential asbestos exposure must be investigated and responsible parties, bankrupt or not, must be held accountable for the harm they have done. I have personally investigated hundreds work and home exposures to asbestos for residents of West Virginia & Ohio in the courts of West Virginia for more than 25 years.
I have successfully represented family members, when the only source of exposure to deadly asbestos fibers is through the work clothes of their close family. I don’t just rely on filing bankruptcy claims as the only source of potential damages in a West Virginia Mesothelioma case. With a vast database of information of what asbestos products used in Wheeling Pittsburgh Steel, Mingo Junction (South Plant) I personally investigate additional responsible parties. Even today, there are viable entities that are responsible for the exposure they caused 20, 30 even 50 years ago. Merely filing bankruptcy claims does not take into account the entire life exposure to asbestos of a person, only after thorough investigation, can it be determined that the only potential source for damages is through recovery from bankruptcy trusts.
Many lawyers call themselves Mesothelioma lawyers, few lawyers have 25 years experience talking to clients and investigating and handling their cases.
Ask the lawyer if he or she has been investigating Wheeling Pitt Steel Mingo Junction (South Plant) asbestos cases since 1988? If their answer is someone in my firm did but, no, I haven’t been investigating cases of Wheeling Pitt Steel Mingo Junction (South Plant) asbestos exposure since 1988, then
