  • Quick Settlements

    If the defendant has settled or lost cases in the past, they may want to settle your claim quickly without going through the case process again. But settling early may not provide proper compensation for your expenses or asbestos exposure damages.

  • Lower Offers

    Defendants usually offer unfairly low settlements. Your lawyer can advise you about your options and whether you shoud hold out for a better proposal. The defendant’s lawyers may make settlement offers up to the start of the trial.

  • Mesothelioma Trial Settlements

    In lawsuits where multiple defendants are named, it’s common for some to settle before heading to trial, avoiding additional expenses, negative publicity and a prolonged proceeding.
