Experienced Mesothelioma Attorneys Are the Key to Your Compensation

mesothelioma attorneysIf you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, choosing a lawyer experienced in mesothelioma to represent you can make a big difference in the compensation you receive, so it makes sense to choose the most skilled and qualified asbestos attorney you can find. Some lawyers with general practices look for mesothelioma clients, even though they don’t specialize in asbestos law. Other lawyers promote themselves as mesothelioma attorneys, even though they have little or no experience in the field.

Experience Makes the Difference

There is no substitute for intense hands-on experience when it comes to asbestos litigation. An experienced mesothelioma attorney will have a working knowledge of all the potential avenues of compensation: asbestos trust funds, lawsuits, and settlements.

Attorneys who specialize in asbestos law have working relationships with the major players, including the manufacturers responsible for much of the asbestos exposure in the United States and their legal counsel and asbestos trust administrators and staff. A mesothelioma attorney who has been practicing for a number of years will have a thorough knowledge of the specialized process for moving asbestos litigation through the courts and for expediting mesothelioma claims.

Everyone has to start somewhere and every field of law needs new, young lawyers to join and learn. When you select your mesothelioma attorney, choose a lawyer who works for a firm that specializes in asbestos litigation, where the person who represents you will have the benefit of the shared experience and wisdom of colleagues with decades of experience.

Kazan Law: Pioneering Mesothelioma Attorneys

Kazan Law was founded in 1974, at a time when some of the first mesothelioma lawsuits were making their way through the legal system. Our principals have over 130 years of combined experience representing clients with mesothelioma and other asbestos diseases.

Kazan Law has helped and continues to shape the field of asbestos litigation. Our reputation as pioneering mesothelioma lawyers has won us appointments on the Trustees Advisory Committees of almost all of the 60 asbestos bankruptcy trusts set up to compensate victims of asbestos exposure. We make sure the voices of those suffering from mesothelioma and other asbestos diseases are heard by those involved in the administration of those trusts.

Our principals are often invited to deliver keynote speeches and lectures on mesothelioma law because they are considered experts in the field. Not only have we successfully represented thousands of clients injured by asbestos exposure; we have helped educate and train many of the lawyers now working in the field.

In addition, Kazan Law has been recognized as a top mesothelioma law firm because of our accolades, experience, skill, and dedication.

A Culture of Caring

Because of the seriousness of mesothelioma, the awards in asbestos cases are often in the seven-figure range and sometimes in eight figure range. This attracts inexperienced and even, sometimes, unscrupulous attorneys hoping for a fast buck.

At Kazan Law, experience has taught us that winning the maximum compensation for our clients means handling each case with personal care. This comes naturally to our mesothelioma attorneys because this practice is our passion.

Some of our lawyers felt called to become mesothelioma attorneys because they wanted to hold accountable negligent corporations that valued profits more highly than human lives. Some have had personal experience with a family member who suffered from illness due to asbestos exposure.

Every attorney and staff member at Kazan Law has a deep commitment to our clients and to seeking justice for people suffering from mesothelioma, a cancer caused by asbestos.

A Winning Record

When you choose a mesothelioma attorney, you also want a firm with that has a history of winning cases. At Kazan Law, our track record of achieving settlements and winning jury verdicts for our clients has placed us in the top echelon among asbestos lawyers.

Kazan Law partner David McClain won the highest jury verdict in a wrongful death lawsuit in California in 2014, achieving an $11.8 million victory for the family of a man who died at age 68 from mesothelioma, after our partner Joe Satterley won a personal injury verdict for him and his wife in 2011 for $17.5 million.

In 2013, a team of Kazan Law mesothelioma attorneys brought home a verdict of more than $27 million for an 82 year old woman and her family. Her husband worked for a company that made insulation products using asbestos. She developed mesothelioma after coming into contact with asbestos when she washed his work clothes.

We have helped thousands of people suffering the impact of a mesothelioma diagnosis navigate the steps needed to recover compensation from asbestos bankruptcy trusts. Our mesothelioma attorneys have won out of court settlements and jury verdicts worth over a billion dollars for our clients.

Kazan Law attorneys became mesothelioma lawyers because they wanted justice for people who become ill because of asbestos exposure. This exposure continued long after corporations knew the health dangers of this toxic mineral. They have stayed in the practice, bringing decades of experience to work with them every day, because helping people with mesothelioma and their families at their time of greatest need is the best job in the world.
