                                                          By Nathalie Fiset N a t h a l i e F i s e t L e v e l :

                                                          Platinum Nathalie Fiset M.D. is a family doctor,

                                                          a certified hypnotherapist and an internet

                                                          marketer. She is also a mother of four. Her

                                                          It takes decades, somewhere between 20 to

    30 years, before mesothelioma or any asbestos-related cancer develops. This is because it

    takes time before the asbestos fiber to really cause damage in the lungs, the abdominal cavity

    or any parts of the body where there is a large presence of asbestos fiber. Thus, people,

    usually men, who have worked in settings like shipyards, industrial plants and construction sites

    only find that they have cancer after ten or twenty years of waiting. Worst comes to worst, they

    do not even discover their sickness at all, until several days before they die.

    Once you have contracted mesothelioma or any asbestos-related disease, it is best to seek

    professional advice on how to fairly compensate the damages, and injuries that you incur with

    regards to exposure. Normally, victims file for personal injury cases against the known person/s

    or company /ies who were instrumental in the exposure of the people involved.

    For example, people who have worked in asbestos mines will almost always file a case against

    the company who owns the mines. However, this must be proven substantially and there should

    be strong evidences that leads to the name of the company or the body of people responsible

    for the injuries.                                                               Page 1 / 3
    The investigation is quite tedious as the evidence goes back some decades ago and might

    even involve other people as witnesses. If there are strong claims and evidence then it is a

    great possibility of winning the case. But since the trial will be a very long and very expensive

    process, many parties opt for settlement. Thus, the majority of cases do not even reach the

    actual due process since they are already cut off at the very beginning of the trial with a

    mutually agreed settlement.

    Of course, victims have their options in filing the case. They may choose to file it themselves

    with or without an attorney, file the case as a group or file an individual case through an

    attorney. The best option, obviously, is to file a mesothelioma or asbestos cancer case with a

    reputable attorney or as a group with the backing of an attorney. Lawyers, of course, are

    learned in the system of the law and they are the once who can bring to the court the victim's


    Also, remember that the field of law is a complex system where only experts can maneuver. It is

    also subject to continuous change. For example, some companies are protected by the courts

    against individual asbestos or mesothelioma claims. It is only inevitable for one to find a lawyer

    who would work the victim's case.

    And in the case of personal injury attorneys, they will file the case and go into the trial or

    settlement without the victim having to spend any out-of-pocket expenses. Personal injury

    attorneys, as some of you know, only get their stipend through a contingency basis.

    If you want to know your best options, it is advisable to immediately raise your case with a

    reputable personal case injury attorney or firm who will maximize the possibility of rendering you

    a fair compensation, either through a complete trial or through settlement.

    If you opt for trial, expect several months of constant court hearings where every hearing is a

    different story. If you think you can't handle this form of stress, it is best to talk with your

    attorney of the possibility of settlement.

    If you choose to have a settlement however, you may have a lower chance of losing. Take note

    that some companies who have previous cases of asbestos-related claims are more

    experienced in winning (and sometimes) losing their trials. This is why it is best to know what

    are the possibilities of both losing and winning the case. The amount of settlement is often as

    much as those that might come out at the end of a full trial. But considering everything that is

    saved from not continuing the court trials, for example the expense on research, the settlement

    is substantially worth it. Besides, personal injury claims normally have high settlement rates.

    Before you take your personal action, the best thing you could do initially is to research for a

    lawyer who really makes strong cases. This is because of the qualifications for the value of

    settlement includes the reputation of the lawyer. After which, decide how you want things to

    end, do you want a settlement or a full trial?                      Page 2 / 3
