Most law firms offer a free first consultation with regards to a personal injury case. It is at such a consultation that you may take the opportunity to interview the potential attorney. You can sit down and discuss your case, however, there are other questions you may ask. This article and subsequent ones will discuss questions to ask at a free consultation with an asbestos mesothelioma lawyer.
Choosing an asbestos lawyer for your case may seem overwhelming. However, the process is made easier by being able to consult with a potential lawyer. And what makes it even better is that such initial consultations are free. That being said, you need to make the best of this opportunity by asking relevant questions. This will allow you to make an informed decision to hire or not to hire the lawyer for your case. Some questions to ask the potential lawyer include the following:
Is your case an asbestos case or not?
As long as you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma and asbestos, an attorney will likely consider your place. And this is without any sort of medical exam being done. This is mainly because mesothelioma is always linked with asbestos exposure. This is also true if you have been diagnosed of asbestosis or some other asbestos-related disease. However, if you do not have any asbestos disease, symptoms or have not been diagnosed of a disease; the attorney may take the case on a conditional basis.
If this is your situation, ensure you understand the steps you will need to take. Further, you will need to know when to expect the review of your case. In addition, ask your attorney about the statute of limitations for your case.
