How do mesothelioma attorneys charge for the legal services?

Many mesothelioma attorneys charge for legal services on a contingency fee basis. In a contingency fee system, the client is not responsible for expenses associated with the case while the case is ongoing. If the case resolves in a settlement or a verdict, the mesothelioma attorney deducts case expenses from the amount recovered. The mesothelioma attorney then takes a fraction of the remaining amount as a legal fee. The remainder is sent to the client.

Recent success story

The mesothelioma attorneys at Weitz & Luxenberg achieved a $16.25 million verdict in an asbestos lawsuit on behalf of a 71-year-old man diagnosed with asbestos-related mesothelioma cancer.

The jury attributed 20 percent of the liability to the sole defendant at trial, Kerr Corp., a dental tape supply company. The case, which clears a new path to justice in asbestos litigation, for it is believed to be the first successful asbestos verdict against that type of defendant.

Weitz & Luxenberg mesothelioma attorney and lead counsel in that case said, “The jury believed Mr. Penn and did not believe Kerr’s defense that the product it distributed did not release harmful asbestos dust, and that Kerr could not have known at the time that it was dangerous.”

Our 71-year-old client was a mail carrier from 1963 to 1999, though, in considering a career change, attended dental technician school in the late 1960s. It was there that he was exposed to asbestos while making castings by carving wax replicas of teeth using asbestos-containing dental tape.

Sadly, this case is one of thousands our mesothelioma attorneys have had to bring on behalf of those whose lives have been upended by mesothelioma.
