Thousands of Washington workers have been exposed to asbestos in factories and other work environments. If you were exposed, even decades ago, and have received a mesothelioma diagnosis, you may be entitled to cash compensation. A Kent mesothelioma lawyer can meet with you at no cost and file a claim if you are eligible.
Unfortunately, many sites including shipyards, aluminum plants, oil refineries, and factories put Washington workers at risk of asbestos exposure.
According to Mayo Clinic, symptoms of mesothelioma can vary based on type and could include:
Only a doctor can provide you with a proper diagnosis. Therefore, it’s important to not delay medical care if you have symptoms that are persistent or trouble you. If you have had previous exposure to asbestos, let your doctor know.
As negligent companies have filed for bankruptcy over the years, dollars have been set aside in these trust funds. Because of this, millions of dollars are already available for victims. This makes it easier for victims to access compensation since many of these companies are no longer around.
However, the process isn’t always easy or straightforward to navigate. Undoubtedly, victims still need to prove liability to receive compensation. For this reason, we encourage you to reach out to one of our lawyers for assistance. We understand how to file these types of claims and move with speed. Plus, we only charge a fee if we’re able to secure you a settlement. In other words, there’s nothing to pay upfront for our services.
If you are a surviving family member of a mesothelioma victim, we want to hear from you. To be sure, a settlement can help your family recoup medical bills, funeral costs, and loss of provider’s income.
According to Washington State, a spouse, registered domestic partner, or children (including stepchildren) can be beneficiaries of a wrongful death victim (RCW 4.20.020). Or, if there is no spouse or child, a sibling or parent can pursue compensation.
One of our knowledgeable attorneys can listen to what happened and provide legal assistance.
The first step is to call a Kent mesothelioma lawyer and ask to schedule a free consultation. Don’t delay; the sooner you reach out, the sooner we can assist. In the event you’re unable to make it to the office, please let us know and one of our lawyers will arrange to meet at your home or hospital.
