Mesothelioma Claims

Mesothelioma attorneys understand asbestos legal issues and the unique challenges asbestos victims face. Vinson Law’s mesothelioma lawyers have a full command of the complex nature of a mesothelioma case, from initial asbestos exposure to the disease progression and victim impact. We understand how the disease affects a mesothelioma victim’s health and the state-by-state regulations involved in filing lawsuits for every case.

Civil Litigation

Litigation is the process of preparing a case for trial, and if a settlement cannot be reached, presenting the case at trial and handling appeals. Litigators develop the best legal theories in support of their client’s case, gather the relevant documents and facts through discovery requests and depositions, and research and draft pretrial motions. If the case is not settled or dismissed, it proceeds to trial.


Many people are unsure of what steps to take following an auto accident. Unfortunately, victims of auto accidents are often misinformed following an accident, and do not receive full compensation for their claim.

Nursing Home Abuse

As advances in science prolong life for many Americans, more elderly people find themselves being cared for in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other senior care environments. These facilities and their staff are responsible for the basic care and needs of the elderly, including food, shelter, medications, hygiene, and other fundamentals.

Asbestos Claims

Prior to the late 1970’s, resulting from the extensive use of asbestos in industrial, commercial and domestic products, hundreds of thousands of people were exposed to some capacity of asbestos. Nearly all individuals with a history of asbestos exposure are at a potentially life-threatening risk for serious health complications.

Bad Faith Insurance Claims

When you believe that your insurance company isn’t negotiating in good faith, do you know your options? In the insurance industry, sometimes key phrases commonly used can make adjusters sit up and take notice. When you find yourself negotiating a settlement with your insurance company (for example, for part of ­your uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage), “bad faith” can be of these commonly used phrases.
