Mesothelioma and TV Advertising

Have you wondered why so many law firms are on television soliciting the unfortunate individuals and/or families who have been stricken with mesothelioma -- a deadly disease caused by exposure to asbestos? The answer is simple: 31 billion dollars. That is the estimated amount that has been set aside in trust funds to pay mesothelioma or asbestos victims. For the most part, the money in these trust funds comes from the bankruptcies of numerous companies that mined, made, sold, or used asbestos or asbestos-containing products.

What you may not know is that most, but not all, of the law firms claiming to have expertise in handling these cases are merely brokers who try to solicit clients by the use of slick commercials, paid actors, unfortunate victims or survivors, and a 1-800 toll free number. If you were able to read quickly enough in the fine print at the bottom of the TV screen, you would see that these law firms come from states nowhere near Tennessee, Georgia, or Alabama.

What you need to know is that you do not have to resort to some slick TV ad or 1-800 number in order to get in touch with a knowledgeable and experienced attorney who handles mesothelioma cases. Since the 1970's, Summers & Wyatt has handled hundreds of asbestos-related disease cases involving workers who were exposed to asbestos in many area plants such as DuPont, Combustion, and the various Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) facilities. Unlike most of these TV advertisers, Jerry Summers and Jimmy Rodgers have actually tried mesothelioma cases in court.

In all candor, we hope you never have to call us to discuss mesothelioma or any other asbestos-related disease. However, if you or a loved one are ever diagnosed with mesothelioma or some other asbestos-related disease, please know that the attorneys at the local Chattanooga, Tennessee law firm of Summers & Wyatt will be glad to provide you with a free consultation to advise you of your legal rights and options.
