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.

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?
