Legally Reviewed by Joseph P. Williams on July 1, 2024

A mesothelioma diagnosis can turn your world upside down, introducing a host of medical, emotional, and financial challenges. Navigating the legal aspects of a mesothelioma case can be particularly daunting, but an experienced and compassionate attorney can help provide you with clarity and support you need. Mesothelioma cases typically involve collecting evidence, filing the appropriate type of claim and potentially going to trial to secure compensation for the full extent of your losses. 

At The Williams Law Firm, P.C., we are committed to supporting individuals who have developed mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure. Under the leadership of the esteemed Joe Williams, our firm is focused on helping clients secure the compensation they deserve for their physical, emotional, and financial hardships. With over 30 years of experience, Attorney Williams has an impeccable record, having never lost a mesothelioma case. He understands the immense challenges that come with a mesothelioma diagnosis and is willing to meet you in the comfort of your home to start working on your case.

Types of Mesothelioma Claims

When pursuing compensation for mesothelioma, understanding the different types of claims is crucial. At The Williams Law Firm, P.C., we are dedicated to determining the best path forward for each unique case. There are primarily three types of mesothelioma claims:

  • Personal Injury Claims: These are filed by the individual diagnosed with mesothelioma. The goal is to recover compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, and the pain and suffering caused by the disease.
  • Wrongful Death Claims: If a loved one has passed away due to mesothelioma, the family members can file a wrongful death claim. This seeks compensation for funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and other related costs.
  • Asbestos Trust Fund Claims: Many companies responsible for asbestos exposure have established trust funds to compensate victims. Filing a claim against these trust funds can provide necessary financial support without the need for a lengthy trial.
  • Veterans Benefits Claims: Veterans exposed to asbestos during military service may have grounds to file for VA benefits, including medical treatment and disability compensation.

Attorney Joe Williams will conduct a thorough investigation to determine the source of your asbestos exposure. This includes reviewing your work history, examining medical records, and identifying the companies responsible for the exposure. By meticulously gathering evidence and assessing the details of your situation, we can determine which type of claim is the best fit for your case.
