Mesothelioma Lawyer for the People
People suffering from mesothelioma almost always experienced exposure to asbestos decades prior to being diagnosed. Frequently, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the workplace. Workers such as mechanics, construction workers, electricians, plumbers, sheet metal workers and boilermakers worked with or near asbestos containing products. Asbestos was used in many products because it is strong, flexible and heat resistant. Some asbestos products are: adhesives, cement, brakes, clutches, gaskets, pipe covering, pipe insulation and cement wallboard. Weitz & Luxenberg mesothelioma lawyers have successfully fought for the rights of many retired workers with mesothelioma and assisted them and their families in supporting themselves and paying for cancer care.
A Mesothelioma Lawyer to Fight Injustice by Companies in the Asbestos Industry
Many companies that made or distributed asbestos products knew of the lethal dangers of asbestos but chose to conceal them for the sake of financial profit. It has been reported that as far back as the 1930s, asbestos manufacturers and their insurance companies knew that asbestos was killing workers. Companies in the asbestos industry could have prevented the development of an aggressive cancer like mesothelioma by warning of the dangers of asbestos or providing safety equipment to prevent exposure to asbestos. The failure to do so was unjust. Weitz & Luxenberg mesothelioma lawyers have been fighting this injustice by filing lawsuits against asbestos industry companies to hold them accountable for the deadly harm they caused.

Can I Afford a Weitz & Luxenberg Mesothelioma Lawyer?
Yes. We understand that someone diagnosed with mesothelioma is under extreme stress about their health, providing care for loved ones and their ability to pay for expensive cancer treatment. Many mesothelioma patients are elderly people who have a limited income and are unable to work due to their illness. Weitz & Luxenberg mesothelioma lawyers try to ensure that mesothelioma sufferers are not deprived of legal services due to financial constraints by working on a contingency fee system. Under a contingency fee system, the lawyer does not charge the client anything while the case is active. Once the case reaches a settlement or a verdict, the lawyer deducts case expenses from the settlement amount or verdict obtained for the client. Then, a fraction of the remaining amount is deducted for legal fees. The final remaining amount is provided to the client. If the lawyer fails to obtain a settlement or a favorable verdict for the client, the client does not pay anything.
