Hendler Flores Law represented the family of a decorated Navy Veteran who was exposed to asbestos while serving on a warship in Vietnam. He later died from mesothelioma, leaving his wife to provide for their 3 young daughters. Scott Hendler and co-counsel Michael Brickman negotiated several settlements with asbestos companies for the family, and also won a $13.8 million verdict against Owens Corning Fiberglas, a company that made asbestos pipe covering for Navy vessels. The compensation recovered was more than enough to secure the financial future of the family.
Mesothelioma Asbestos Cancer
Mesothelioma. From the moment you heard the diagnosis, you have probably been overwhelmed with emotions and unsure where to turn for help. In addition to all of the medical concerns racing through your mind, you might also be wondering about your legal options.
Obtaining the Mesothelioma Compensation You Deserve
Hendler Flores Law can help. Our firm has decades of experience in Texas and throughout the United States representing families affected by this terrible disease. We know what it takes to obtain the best possible recovery under the law for mesothelioma clients.
Asbestos exposure is the sole cause of mesothelioma. Even a small amount of asbestos exposure for a short period of time can years later result in mesothelioma cancer. Tragically, many companies knew of its dangers long before they stopped mining it, using it in products or otherwise taking safety measures to protect employees from workplace exposure to asbestos fibers.
If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, we can help you determine the source of your asbestos exposure and get you the compensation you deserve.
There are two legal options available for mesothelioma victims:
Asbestos Trusts. Some asbestos companies have set aside money in trust funds for mesothelioma victims that do not require them to file a lawsuit. The process of getting compensated through these trusts is difficult to understand, however, so having an experienced lawyer increases your chances of getting a good recovery.
Mesothelioma Lawsuits. For other companies who have not set up asbestos trusts, we can represent you in a mesothelioma lawsuit.
Legal Representation Focused On You
As a small, boutique law firm, we do things differently than the large firms that process hundreds of cases batches like they’re on an assembly line. At Hendler Flores Law, we take the time to get to know each and every client individually. Then we build your case from the ground up, like a custom home, designing each part of it with your needs and goals in mind.
Your story is unique and so too will be the way we work up your case. We are committed to building a strong argument in your case, making tough demands on the defendants, and securing the legal solutions you want and need. Your goals form our strategy. They may be:
- Wanting to make sure what happened to you or your loved one never happens to anyone else.
- Holding companies accountable for their negligent actions that lead to the asbestos exposure.
- Needing support and helpful resources after a mesothelioma diagnosis or death.
- Wanting to be heard and have your day in court.
- Wanting financial compensation for medical costs, loss of income, and other expenses resulting from your mesothelioma diagnosis.
Whatever the case may be, our personal injury attorneys represent you based on your interests, not ours.
