Hiring a Lawyer
When you are considering filing a lawsuit after you discover you have mesothelioma, you may be wondering whether you should hire an attorney.

How will an attorney know where I was exposed to asbestos?
This is a great question and many of our clients want to know how we can figure out where they were exposed to asbestos if they are not even sure. It is our job to walk you through the steps of where you worked and lived so that we can determine if someone was negligent in exposing you to asbestos. When we do this, it is possible that we can discover who exposed you to it and how much blame should be assigned to them.
What are asbestos trust funds?
An asbestos or mesothelioma trust fund is created when companies who exposed their employees to asbestos go bankrupt. Because the company may run out of money, they set aside a certain amount in a trust fund for people who come forward in the future and can show that this company caused them to become ill because of the asbestos exposure. If you were exposed to asbestos through your previous employment and are suffering from a related illness, you need to reach out to an asbestos abatement contractor, like the contractors at Nielsen Environmental, as soon as possible to see how we can help you get the compensation you deserve for your illness.
