You've identified the source of exposure that most likely led to you contracting mesothelioma. Now, the only issue is that after years of you waiting for justice, the responsible parties have gone bankrupt or passed their corporate assets to others. Who's going to pay your compensation claim so you can fund your recovery?

If you don't know where or how you were exposed we can help. The attorneys at Menges Law Firm have conducted the research and have the knowledge regarding products and premises to know where and how you were likely exposed.

Our experienced attorneys understand how difficult these problems can be. With over 50 years of combined experience, our dedicated mesothelioma lawyers are no strangers to the harsh realities of fighting for justice — and we're proud to shoulder the burden so our clients don't have to. We are dedicated to helping you hold the company or entity that caused your mesothelioma responsible for their actions and obtain the financial compensation you deserve.

Breaking Down Your Asbestos Benefits Claim

When companies take actions that harm people, it's not always easy to pursue justice. For instance, corporate entities often use legal structuring to indemnify their board members, shareholders and other leaders from being held responsible for negative outcomes. Although the connections between asbestos exposure and mesothelioma are well-known, you may have to modify your legal approach by:

  • Taking action against a holding company that absorbed the firm that originally caused your exposure
  • Filing a claim with the VA or another government agency
  • Suing a firm or employer that exposed you to asbestos in your workplace or a commercial venue
  • Filing a claim against a bankruptcy trust responsible for a bankrupt company which previously exposed you to asbestos

Whichever course of action is best for you and your situation, you need to have experienced, aggressive legal representation to derive the greatest benefit from your case. At Menges Law Firm, our goal is to provide you with the insights you require and the representation you need to obtain full compensation for your injuries.

Picking A Strategy That Suits You

Even if you were exposed to asbestos under the same circumstances as another mesothelioma victim, your claims would likely differ. For instance, you might have to seek compensation from a trust fund specifically set up to provide for those harmed by a company that later went bankrupt. You might also face legal resistance from the at-fault party and find it wiser to seek a settlement. Should your claim head to trial, you'll need the staying power to fight until you achieve a satisfactory resolution.
