Mesothelioma Medical Terms A-Z

The following is a list of most common medical terms associated with a Mesothelioma diagnosis. If you are experiencing Mesothelioma like symptoms you should see your doctor immediately. Mesothelioma has 4 stages. In stages 1-2 it is very difficult to diagnose because it looks like other diseases such as bronchitis, pneumonia, COPD, chronic cough, etc.

We Help Mesothelioma Victims with Information about Settlements

It is very important to contact a Mesothelioma lawyer soon after you have been diagnosed with Mesothelioma. The only known cause of this Mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos. Mesothelioma is a progressive disease, with a 10-50 year latency period developing over years or even decades in many patients. Therefore, your statute of limitations does not begin with the time of exposure. Rather, it begins with your diagnosis that you have Mesothelioma.

Mesothelioma Awards– Representation Fees

Our Mesothelioma lawyers earn their Awards by winning your case against asbestos companies. They do not get paid unless you get paid.

When a Mesothelioma settlement is reached, your lawyer is paid a contingency fee or percentage of the settlement, which is compensation for their time, travel, and other expenses incurred during your Mesothelioma case. Typically it ranges from 33-40% of the total compensation amount after deducting the expenses. Be sure to discuss the matter of fees and payments that the contingency fees covered with your lawyer. This will save you any problems or questions that might occur later.
