65-year-old deceased mesothelioma victim (South Carolina resident) who was exposed to asbestos through his work as an electrician in various paper mills and industrial plants
It will undoubtedly go down as one of the most tragic occurrences in history. A vast majority of clients have never previously hired a lawyer. In fact, many are reluctant to hire an attorney or file a legal claim. It is not until we unveil the insurmountable evidence that these corporations knew the risks of asbestos yet used the material anyway that our clients understand why they need to fight, and our reason for doing so.
Each time we handle a mesothelioma case, we put more knowledge in our arsenal that we can draw from in future cases. Our experience with mesothelioma litigation means we know the common sources for asbestos exposure, are familiar with the science behind the disease, and have gone to bat against some of the major defendants. You can use our experience to your benefit if you or someone you love was recently diagnosed.
If you or a loved one was diagnosed with mesothelioma, or you recently lost a loved one, you have rights. People develop mesothelioma as a result of asbestos inhalation and exposure. Asbestos is a substance that was commonly used in a variety of industrial capacities throughout the last century, despite the fact that the corporations using it knew or should have known about the risks the substance posed to humans. This wrongful exposure resulted in tens of thousands of people each year developing the very serious form of cancer known as mesothelioma.
I don’t know where I would have been exposed. Can I still file a claim?
A common myth is if you do not know where you were exposed to asbestos, you cannot file a claim, because you would have no one to file a claim against.
If you are not sure where your asbestos exposure came from, BCH is here for you. Chances are, we can help you pinpoint where you were exposed and whom you could file a claim against. This allows us to protect clients who have been affected by asbestos. We help you seek the justice you deserve.
How much money could I recover?
The amount of compensation any given mesothelioma patient or family member is entitled to varies. We generally fight to recover compensation for things like medical expenses, pain and suffering, funeral expenses, and more. For a more precise estimate, we invite you to contact our firm so that we can conduct an evaluation of your case. We can even meet with you personally in your own home so we can hear about your case.
Many mesothelioma patients were exposed during their time on active duty, so one of the great privileges we get as mesothelioma lawyers is to be able to serve those who have served our country. No one can truly understand the magnitude of the sacrifice our veterans have made like the veterans themselves, but sadly, many of them were repaid for their service with a deadly disease.
Our firm has an extensive history working with veterans who were diagnosed with mesothelioma from asbestos exposure during their time in the military. We have proven our ability to secure favorable recoveries for asbestos cancer patients, including veterans.
At BCH, we go to great lengths to ensure that our clients get the justice they deserve. We will often depose physicians, talk to the leading specialists in mesothelioma treatment, and meet face-to-face with our clients wherever they live. These complex cases often require long hours and lots of travel on our part, but it’s helpful and reassuring for you to know we have the resources and commitment to get the job done right.
Our lawyers handle many types of serious injury cases as well as a variety of types of cases within mesothelioma litigation itself, and we can say with confidence that our bond with our mesothelioma clients is the strongest it can possibly be. These are intensely emotional cases – we meet our clients at the toughest time in their life. During this journey, we get to know our clients at a very personal level. Even after a case has been decided, we remain in touch with our clients.
The relationships we forge with these clients are as important to us as any award or accolade we could receive.
