What are the Legal Rights of Someone Diagnosed with Mesothelioma? | Attorney Joe Williams

A family member's been diagnosed with mesothelioma and you're wondering do they have any legal rights? Hi I'm Joe Williams

I'm a mesothelioma trial attorney in New York City And I can give you some information about this topic and it's a very important one Because workers in industry and various trades throughout the past century often work for decades with their hands, building America and working with asbestos products And these same workers are the folks who 30, 40, 60 years later have been now diagnosed with mesothelioma And they are put in a position of taking a path down into their history, into their past, to try and figure out how they could have been exposed to asbestos

Well what I can tell you is that every day at my office, we represent people who are suffering with mesothelioma We represent them and their families as they take this journey to try and figure out how they contracted this terrible disease And what we do in all of these cases is we look for companies — the defendants, as they're called — who could have exposed our clients to asbestos And when we're able to find those companies were through a very thorough investigation and a lot of research into these cases, we then proceed to demonstrate in court how those companies fail to warn our clients about the dangers of asbestos You see, under the law in various states (and certainly New York State, there's a duty to warn of known dangers

Known dangers to end users, perhaps like you or your family member who worked with these asbestos products And that failure to warn about the known hazard — hazard being cancer, mesothelioma — creates liability on these corporate entities Why am I telling you this? I'm telling you this because you have questions about mesothelioma and the legal process as it relates to mesothelioma And we can provide answers to those questions I'm Joe Williams and every day we represent victims of mesothelioma

We can answer your questions as well I hope you found this video informative and I thank you very much for watching
