The Asbestos Lawsuit Process

Steps in the Asbestos Lawsuit Process

While every asbestos case is different, there’s a general process they all follow. The first step in that process is choosing the asbestos law firm that’s going to handle your claim. The Lanier Law Firm, which sponsors Mesothelioma Advocate, has been handling asbestos-related cases since 1998, and we’re ready to put that experience to work for you.

  • STEP 1: Pick Up the Phone
    You can contact The Lanier Law Firm by calling us at 1-844-597-6376, or by filling out a free consultation form on our website. Once we review the information you give us, we’ll follow up with an expert evaluation, and to discuss which steps you should take next.
  • STEP 2: Meet Face to Face
    If you decide you’d like to move forward with us, an asbestos lawyer from The Lanier Law Firm will fly straight to you. In our experience, meeting face to face is the best way to build better relationships. It will also help us to learn more about your unique situation.
  • STEP 3: Filing Your Complaint
    Once The Lanier Law Firm has identified those responsible for your condition, we will draft a formal complaint and file it with the court. When that’s been completed, a schedule will be issued for your asbestos court case.
  • STEP 4: Prosecuting Your Case
    During this period we will continue to gather information and build your case in order to give you the best possible chance of success.
  • STEP 5: Possible Case Settlement
    The large majority of asbestos cases are settled before they make it to court. If the defendant attempts to settle your case, we’ll review their offer with you and advise you on how to proceed.
  • STEP 6: Court
    If a settlement with the defendant isn’t reached, your asbestos case will go to trial. A jury will decide the outcome, based on the strength of the evidence and testimony they’re presented with.
