How Will I Afford a Lawyer?

The majority of law firms specializing in asbestos litigation – including our own – work on a contingency fee, which means that your lawyer will be paid only if your case has a successful outcome.

Paying legal fees should be the last concern of asbestos victims

Occupational exposure to asbestos is responsible for terrible diseases which affect up to 15,000 people in the U.S. every year. Numerous people who are diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer already struggle to afford their treatment and the other necessary medical procedures, as the expenses of these services are often very high. Therefore, having to cover the cost of the legal services they need to recover financial compensation will understandably be impossible. However, the good news is that most lawyers specialized in asbestos litigation work on a contingency fee and clients do not have to pay anything unless their case is successful.
