No, not at all. If you’ve developed mesothelioma in New Orleans but were exposed to asbestos while working in another state, your lawyer will work with you to build your claim, then take care of the out-of-state work.
If you case goes to trial, it’s possible that you could have to travel to testify, but the vast majority of mesothelioma cases are resolved outside of court, and many are resolved through a claims process with asbestos trusts and other entities created to see that people like you are properly compensated for the injuries you’ve sustained.
In New Orleans, The Gertler Law Firm was the first in Louisiana to win an award in a mesothelioma case linking asbestos exposure to the disease, and we’ve represented countless families and individuals in the decades since.
You employer, knowingly or not, exposed you to a dangerous carcinogen in the workplace, and has obligations to help provide for your care in the aftermath.
