Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that is typically caused by exposure to asbestos, most often in occupational settings. This incurable cancer can have devastating consequences, leaving family members unsure of how to seek justice. We recommend that you contact an experienced attorney, as you may be entitled to compensation.

At Talbot, Carmouche & Marcello, we’ve fought on behalf of many families and can help you determine if you have a valid mesothelioma lawsuit. We can also help you identify the responsible party and fight for a more favorable settlement. 

If you have been diagnosed with this asbestos-related illness, contact a mesothelioma lawyer today.

When to Contact a Mesothelioma Attorney

In most cases, we recommend contacting a mesothelioma attorney as soon as possible. In Louisiana there is a statute of limitations starting the day you receive your diagnosis.

Additionally, these claims can be complex, involve multiple parties, and often result in class action lawsuits. We can help guide you through the entire process.

You Are in Good Hands With Talbot, Carmouche & Marcello

We understand this may be a devastating time for you and your family, and we are here to ease that burden in any way we can, from helping you navigate workers’ comp claims to establishing third-party fault. See how we can help if you have a mesothelioma case in New Orleans.

Filing a Claim With Workers’ Comp

It’s possible to come in contact with asbestos in your own home, school, or other institutions. However, in most cases, mesothelioma results from exposure to asbestos on the job. This means that you may need to file a workers’ compensation claim. We can help you file your claim properly to ensure that you have a solid case.

Establishing Fault

If you came into contact with asbestos due to a manufacturer’s negligence, you may also need to file a claim against that manufacturer or other third parties. We can help you determine all the parties at fault.

Assess the Amount of Damage You May Be Entitled To

Mesothelioma treatment can be costly and can also result in numerous other expenses. This may include lost wages, transportation to treatment, and other costs. We’ll help you factor in all these costs so you can request a settlement that reflects the true financial burden of your illness. This can help put your mind at ease while you or a loved one may be undergoing care.

Filing a Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Mesothelioma may result in the loss of a loved one. If that’s the case, we can help you determine if you have a strong case for a wrongful death lawsuit. While this cannot bring back your loved one, it can help ease some of the financial burden from medical treatments, funeral costs, and other financial hardships. Our compassionate attorneys are here to support you.
