How We Can Help

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be wondering how the law can help. The California mesothelioma lawsuit attorneys of Harowitz & Tigerman have decades of experience fighting for people afflicted with this deadly disease. We have devoted much of our practice to helping Mesothelioma sufferers, and we want to work for you.

Basic Facts on Mesothelioma

In our home state of California, a surprising number of people are exposed to asbestos in the workplace, in the home, from building construction or from automobile work. Though malignant mesothelioma is an uncommon tumor, it is clear that virtually all cases arise in people who were exposed to asbestos fibers.

Mesothelioma and asbestosis are life-threatening diseases. Traditional treatments can alleviate pain and prolong life somewhat, and new, experimental treatments provide hope for better prognoses. However, the median duration of survival is still 14 to 18 months.

We Can Speed Up a Trial

At law firm of Harowitz & Tigerman, we firmly believe that mesothelioma sufferers should be fully compensated for the terrible disease they have contracted. The company or individual responsible should have to pay for the victim’s medical bills, lost wages, future lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Unfortunately, in many states it can take 3-5 years for a case to reach the trial stage, meaning that many sufferers never get to see justice. However, our California mesothelioma lawsuit attorneys own the extensive experience necessary to get a mesothelioma case to trial in just a few months. There are special procedures in California that we can use to quickly get our clients the verdict or asbestos claim Settlement they so desperately need.
