Mesothelioma victims almost always win money damages if they sue, but the cases can be complicated and a mesothelioma or asbestos law firm is usually needed to identify the parties who are liable for the asbestos exposure (asbestos manufacturers, insurance companies, or asbestos victims' trust funds) and begin the lawsuit or settlement process.
