Unfortunately for this family, they hired a less experienced attorney from a big name law firm that only won them a settlement of about $150,000. To make matters worse, the attorney forgot to create a will so the family members are now suing each other
(PRWEB) November 14, 2013
The Mesothelioma Victims Center's number one goal is to make certain every diagnosed victim of mesothelioma in the United States has instant access to the nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys. This is why the Center has decided to ask victims to call and compare any attorney they feel is more experienced than the ones the Victims Center will suggest. The legal professionals the Mesothelioma Victims Center suggest consistently get the best financial compensation results for their clients, as well as handling other vital issues such as a will. Diagnosed victims, or their family members, can call the center at 866-714-6466 for their unsurpassed free services. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
What spurred on this challenge was a recent phone call from a victim's family. The family is torn apart over what to do with settlement money, after working with a less experienced attorney who did not set up a will. The family member informed the Victims Center that they had hired an attorney from a giant law firm that handles everything from dog bites, to medical devices, to mesothelioma claims.
The group says, "In this instance, the victim was a US Navy Veteran and plumber. The family told us about the compensation received and after passing it on to a legal expert known by the Center, it was determined that the claim should have been in the millions. Unfortunately for this family, they hired a far less experienced attorney from a big name national law firm which only won them a settlement of about $150,000. To make matters worse, the attorney forgot to get a will in place so the family members are now suing each other over the settlement.
“What we want families to learn from this terrible situation is that just because they hire a big name law firm to represent them, that big name does not mean that the attorney will have nearly as much experience as ones the Mesothelioma Victims Center will suggest. The attorneys we suggest only handle mesothelioma claims, so they have unparalleled experience that puts them in a league of their own. To put it in different words: Hiring an attorney from a big name firm is like asking a car salesman to sell you woodworking tools. He will try his best, but without the decades of experience from an expert, you might end up with all the wrong tools.” http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
