The mesothelioma lawyers at Belluck & Fox have developed a national reputation for being the asbestos attorneys of choice.
For more than 20 years, our mesothelioma attorneys have taken on the big asbestos companies with the highest level of legal skill and the determination to win for our clients.
Mesothelioma is a particularly insidious disease because people don't know until many years later that they have it, and they can't understand what happened. Mesothelioma is a unique cancer in that it only has one cause which is asbestos exposure. The companies that sold asbestos knew that it was harmful but didn't tell anybody and didn't put any warning on the product. Unfortunately Mesothelioma is not a curable cancer, though it's survival is about 18 months from diagnosis.
You know, you can't fix it and you can't make it right, but at least you can help them in some way, try to make things better and you wanna fight for them because there isn't...
I had been ill, it turned out to be Mesothelioma. When you're going through that you reflect on where you are in life and you're thinking about your wife and your family. The firm gave me guidance and support, allowing us to go on with our lives and essentially left it in their hands.
The companies that made asbestos products and sold them without a warning were some of the largest companies in the United States and in the world. They did horrible things, they made profit off the backs working men and women and got them sick from exposure to asbestos. The proof is in what we do, we continually beat them in court, we continually get large settlements and we're not afraid to take them on. They know that we're not a firm that they should not be messing with.
Virtually every single instance that we've done this, our experts and our lawyers have prevailed with juries and judges in virtually every battle that we've fought. You can't go back in time and stop it from happening, you can't make things right to extent you would wanna make them right, we can't put these corporations, unfortunately in jail where they belong. So you have to ask yourself, what can I do, do as much as I can possibly [crosstalk 00:02:26] given the situation [inaudible 00:02:28].
What we want our clients to feel at the end of the day is that we got them excellent results, we exceeded their expectations and that we treated them with a tremendous amount of respect.
I have a feeling of security now, whether I last another 6 months or 6 years, I've done what I can to provide for my family. Belluck & Fox was the instrument that I used to do that.
