How to Find the Right North Carolina Asbestos Lung Cancer Lawyer

Look for experience, resources, and a track record of success

Mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer are aggressive and life-threatening diseases that affect thousands of people every year. North Carolina is among the states with the most deaths due to mesothelioma and asbestos exposure-related illnesses like lung cancer. From 1999 to 2017, the most recent data available, there were 6,577 asbestos-related deaths in the state. Counties with the most asbestos-related deaths include:

  • Wake County
  • Mecklenburg County
  • Guilford County
  • Forsyth County
  • Buncombe County

People diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos lung cancer in North Carolina may be entitled to collect significant compensation for their medical expenses, lost wages, pain, and more. But there are many legal hurdles to overcome before any money is collected. That’s why it is important for asbestos victims to work with lawyers who have experience handling asbestos cases in this state.

However, finding the right mesothelioma or asbestos lung cancer lawyer can be a daunting task, especially when an asbestos victim is dealing with a serious illness.

How a mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer lawyer can help

An asbestos lung cancer lawyer helps victims navigate the legal process of filing Asbestos Trust Fund claims or lawsuits against the large corporations that exposed them to asbestos. Even if your exposure happened decades ago, we can gather evidence, identify liable parties, negotiate settlements or take the case to trial if necessary. We also keep clients up to date on the progress of their case and offer emotional support.

In North Carolina, dozens of companies have been connected to harmful asbestos exposure, including, but not limited to:

  • East Bay Auto Group, Charlotte
  • Vicks Chemical, Greensboro
  • E. Bingle Sheet Metal, New Bern
  • Sigmon Electric Co., Statesville
  • Champion International, Waynesville

Qualities of a successful asbestos lung cancer lawyer

When looking for a mesothelioma or asbestos lung cancer attorney, there are several qualities to consider. Here are some of the key qualities that a successful asbestos lawyer should possess:

  • Look for a lawyer who has extensive experience in handling asbestos cases and has a track record of success in North Carolina. They should have a deep understanding of the laws and regulations governing asbestos exposure and be familiar with the legal tactics and strategies needed to win cases.
  • Dealing with a life-threatening illness can be overwhelming. Asbestos victims need a lawyer who understands what they are going through and is willing to provide the support and guidance needed. Choose a lawyer with past clients who can testify to their compassionate and empathetic services.
  • The lawyer should be able to communicate complex legal concepts in a way that their clients understand. They should also be responsive to inquiries and keep clients informed throughout the legal process.
  • Asbestos cases can be complex and require significant resources, including access to expert witnesses, medical records, and other evidence, as well as the financial capacity to cover travel and analysis without upfront money from the client.

Questions to ask an asbestos lung cancer lawyer

To determine if a lawyer is the right fit for a case, ask them the following questions:

  • How long have you been practicing law, and how many asbestos cases have you handled?
  • What is your approach to handling asbestos cases, and how do you plan to approach my case specifically?
  • Can you provide references or testimonials from other clients you have represented in asbestos cases?
  • What percentage of your cases go to trial, and what is your success rate in obtaining compensation for your clients?
  • What are your fees, and how are they structured?
