A big questions when looking for a lawyer is how to choose a lawyer!
When interviewing a potential lawyer, you should ask what his/her personal experience is with mesothelioma patients, and exactly how many cases have been handled. You can gauge where you could stand after the case is all said and done.
Some lawyers forward cases to a law firm and receive a cut of the payment in exchange. It depends on how you want it to be handled.
It is important to ask the mesothelioma lawyer how all of the expenses and attorney fees will be handled for the case. Be sure to state the status of your insurance (if mesothelioma is covered or not). It could take a long time for the process to be near completion. Usually fees in these cases are based on contingency fee contracts, meaning that the lawyers will get a percentage of the amount the victim receives. If the victims loses, then the attorney will receive zero.
