What Do I Do When I’ve Been Diagnosed With Mesothelioma, But My Work Records in Louisiana Were Lost Long Ago?

Because of the long latency period between asbestos exposure and the development of mesothelioma, it’s common to find that employment or tax records have been lost by the time a diagnosis is made in Louisiana.

For the purposes of your mesothelioma legal claim, it is necessary to show documentation of your workplace exposure to asbestos, which is why you and your family can trust our team to piece together a record of your employment over the years. We have the knowledge and resources to explore various archives, including tax records, Veterans Administration data, company employment rolls, and even by talking to old coworkers who can provide statements vouching for your time at the company or in a given military role or posting.

When you’re fighting mesothelioma in Louisiana, your focus has to be on your health and your treatment plan.

Because mesothelioma tends to attack older people who may already have health problems, and because it tends to be diagnosed late, when it’s less treatable, the last thing a family facing a mesothelioma diagnosis should have to worry about is lawyers and digging through old records.

At The Gertler Law Firm, we know that Louisiana families living with a mesothelioma diagnosis deserve better, and we make sure your family’s rights are protected while giving you space to focus on what matters – being together, helping your loved one, and making the most of the time you have.

Our team of experienced Louisiana mesothelioma attorneys and investigators will put together as much information as is available, with as little intrusion as possible. Your legal rights matter, but we know that your family comes first.
