Pratlaw article on MESOTHELIOMA: Newnan Georgia Injury

Filed under: A tragedy that did not have to happen — thebigpraetor @ 12:25 pm

I worked with the Mass Tort ‘Guru’, Professor Francis McGovern, Esquire, the man who was put in charge by the Federla Courts to set up a paradigm in the primary Federal Class Action Asbestos Lawsuit. Our team worked on developing the form for applying to receive the victim portions of settlements in the Asbestos Litigation(s). Asbestos was manufactured and used in products by hundreds and hundreds of companies ~ all of whom knew just exactly how dangerous Asbestos was at the time. Asbestos can best be explained as light and airy, ‘floating’ fiberglass! It causes Mesothelioma which plain and simply is a killer … and it incurable. In my opinion Mesothelioma has been mislabeled as a cancer because it is more mechanical in its destruction and less in the nature of biologically than cancer. Mesothelioma is a malady that affects most persons that have been exposed to asbestos for a long duration of time. It takes many years for the victims to develop symptoms of the disease. The process of cure and compensation is complicated by everything from smoking to genetics . Almost without exception Mesothelioma victims are manufactured by the negligence of their employers. Finally the Federal Government turned from protecting big business to formulation of a compensation paradigm to give a little justice to Mesothelioma victim but a mesothelioma lawsuit still has to be file as soon as someone is diagnosed with this cancer. The Statute of Limitations starts ticking as soon as the diagnosis is given: so don’t delay! Anybody who is affected from mesothelioma due to exposure to asbestos is eligible for compensation. The United States have set up funds to help the patients. However, these funds can be availed only by filing a mesothelioma lawsuit. The connection between mesothelioma and asbestos was found in the nineteenth century. The first lawsuit was filed in 1929 against manufacturers of asbestos and owners of workshops using asbestos. The case was filed for not implementing the safety measures properly. Since that time many cases have successfully proven mesothelioma caused by Asbestos exposure and damages have been awarded. Bringing a mesothelioma lawsuit to a favorable conclusion is not an easy task and without hesitation I advise you engage an attorney in such a case as soon as possible. There are three very important reasons why a mesothelioma lawsuit should be filed: (1.) Again, the Statutes of Limitations stipulate that the lawsuit is filed within a time frame after diagnosis; (2.) the cases take a considerable amount of time to bring to conclusion and the victim and his/her family’s financial situation is going to deteriorate during mesothelioma diagnosis and treatment, and; (3.) Your lawyer will know the resources of information regarding the best treatment and doctors in the field to seek out. Call me today before valuable evidence is lost or goes missing!
