LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) June 05, 2014
With an estimated 300,000 mesothelioma cases predicted to be diagnosed in the U.S. before the year 2030, the asbestos crisis is still a looming issue. The attorneys at Baron and Budd, a national law firm dedicated to protecting the rights of those harmed by asbestos exposure, encourage all mesothelioma patients to contact an experienced lawyer for a consultation about their legal options.
Baron and Budd was one of the nation’s first law firms to successfully handle a mesothelioma lawsuit and is proud to continue fighting on behalf of mesothelioma patients more than 35 years later.
“We advocate tirelessly for all mesothelioma patients and their families, both in the courtroom and to help find a cure for this deadly cancer,” said Russell Budd, co-founder and managing shareholder of Baron and Budd. “Baron and Budd has contributed to numerous nonprofit groups to help fight for asbestos victims and we are passionate about this cause.”
The Baron and Budd track record is virtually unmatched in the United States. For example, Baron and Budd mesothelioma attorneys won the largest mesothelioma verdict in the state of Texas to date: $55 million for an El Paso worker, who was exposed to joint compound through construction work. (Hernandez v. Kelly-Moore Paint Co., Inc., No. 20003559 Texas Dist. Ct., El Paso County). Some of the firm's other major verdicts include:
$48 million for a California mesothelioma patient and his family, the highest mesothelioma verdict in the nation in 2012 (Bobbie Izell et al. v. Asbestos companies et al., case number BC469931, in the Superior Court for the State of California, County of Los Angeles.)
$20 million for a former entertainer and now San Francisco resident (Georgia-Pacific, LLC, Defendant and Appellant v. Joan Mahoney and Daniel Mahoney, Plaintiffs and Respondents, Appeal from the Superior Court of San Francisco County, Case No. CGC-06-458140).
$9 million for a Dow contract employee (Henderson v. The Dow Chemical Co., No. 10-07003, Dallas Co,m Teas District Court)
