Multiple Generations of Leaders in Mesothelioma Litigation
Led by nationally known mesothelioma attorneys, the law firm of Levy Konigsberg LLP has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. We pride ourselves on our multiple generations of mesothelioma lawyers. In fact, our law firm became one of the first mesothelioma law firms in the country when our founding partner Stan Levy became the first personal injury lawyer in the Northeast to represent mesothelioma patients.
Over time, mesothelioma litigation has changed significantly. The first asbestos lawsuits were brought mainly on behalf of shipyard workers with a lifetime of asbestos exposure, but a much more diverse group of workers make up current victims of mesothelioma. People develop various types of mesothelioma resulting from asbestos exposure that occurred in ways never known before. That's why our mesothelioma attorneys continuously develop their expertise to keep pace with the latest medical and scientific aspects of the disease. These efforts help our attorneys represent mesothelioma victims with the highest level of professionalism and obtain for them the justice and compensation that they deserve.
Levy Konigsberg LLP is dedicated to treating every case as if it is our only case. Our mesothelioma attorneys have a unique advantage - they come from multiple generations of asbestos litigation and have a history of more than 25 years of success in mesothelioma lawsuits.
Over the years, our attorneys have represented over three thousand asbestos litigants and brought more than 50 cases to verdict. The firm has obtained many of the country’s largest settlements and most significant verdicts in mesothelioma lawsuits, as cited by The National Law Journal for 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 2002, and 2004.
Mesothelioma has no known cure and often causes severe pain, suffering, and other types of damage, such as loss of consortium, and loss of income. Additionally, due to the exceedingly high cost of mesothelioma treatments, many families exhaust savings and accumulate financial debt in order to pay for the medical expenses of their family member.
Under the law of most states, pain and suffering from mesothelioma may be compensated through the award of money damages, usually obtained with the help of experienced mesothelioma attorneys. In some states other types of damages may also be recovered.
Asbestos litigation affords mesothelioma victims the opportunity to receive financial compensation and hold accountable the companies that caused their asbestos exposure.
If you or your family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should get in touch with a mesothelioma lawyer as early as possible to determine if you have a mesothelioma case and to:
- Preserve your rights to bring a legal action against the responsible parties within the limited time frame allowed by law, known as statute of limitations;
- Obtain maximum compensation in your case by being able to:
- Preserve evidence and establish facts of the asbestos exposure while the claimant is still alive and able to provide information;
- File and resolve a lawsuit against the responsible parties before they file for bankruptcy or, if they already have, to obtain compensation before their bankruptcy trust funds run out of money;
- Expedite your case, as courts tend to give higher priority to mesothelioma lawsuits where the claimant is still alive.
Find out whether you have a case by speaking to one of our experienced mesothelioma lawyers via our 24/7 toll-free hotline at 1-800-MESO-LAW (1-800-637-6529) or by submitting an email inquiry (see form above). Our attorneys will be quick to respond to you and happy to answer all of your questions.
While our offices are located in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Georgia, many of our mesothelioma lawyers are licensed to practice law in a number of U.S. states and have the capability and extensive experience of representing mesothelioma clients throughout the United States.
