How does asbestos claims work?
After you or a loved one have experienced symptoms related to asbestos exposure, including a determination of mesothelioma, you can make a demand for payment from the party responsible for the exposure. In many cases, there is an insurance provider who will review the claim. The insurance will either deny liability or make an offer of settlement.
If the insurer denies liability or offers a settlement amount that is inadequate to fully compensate you for your damages, then an attorney can pursue your claim through the court litigation process. During litigation, an attorney will continue to attempt to resolve your case but will also prepare for trial in the event the case is not settled.
