Why Choose Miskin Law to handle your claim?
We are the first Canadian Law firm to handle
Mesothelioma Trust Claims
For over ten years we have been working on asbestos and mesothelioma cases. If you choose an American law firm to handle your case, the individual handling the file may not have full understanding of our Canadian laws. Accordingly, if you choose to use an American lawyer, such decision could lead to you not receiving the full amount of the compensation to which you are entitled. We are the original Canadian firm that works on asbestos cases, and we have clients from across the country, including as far west as British Columbia and as far east as Nova Scotia.
Miskin Law has been working on asbestos claims for over 10 years, and we have built a database of asbestos products used in each province of Canada. Our database tracks asbestos products used within different industries in Canada and the timeframe that each product was used. This is important because in order to file an asbestos trust claim, it is necessary to demonstrate proof of exposure to a specific asbestos product. Without such a record, this may be impossible! Since we have helped hundreds of Canadians with their mesothelioma claims, we already have detailed information about asbestos usage in each province, which can help your claim.
You may have seen some of the advertisements by U.S. lawyers promising large amounts of compensation for mesothelioma. The large amount of compensation the US firms are promoting are from US court cases. Unfortunately, if you are not a US citizen, you cannot have a claim in US courts. The only possible recourse for Canadians is either starting a claim with the provincial Workers Compensation Boards or making claims to the asbestos trusts. In most circumstances we can get much more compensation from the asbestos trusts than the workers compensation boards will provide. Do not hesitate to give us a call and see how much your case is worth.
As mentioned above, we are able to help clients all over Canada. Usually, we do not need to meet in person. A lot of the communication and document exchange can be done via telephone, online or fax. For an asbestos trust claim you do not have to deal with the stress of the court room, and we can take care of the claims process so that you can focus on your health.
How do we make a claim?
It will be necessary to obtain your work history information via telephone, email or regular mail. We can send you our Asbestos Claims Package, to gather all of the relevant information. Once we have this information, we will then research your worksite locations and years of employment. An Affidavit will be drafted pertaining to your exposure and forwarded to you for signature. Once we have a confirmed diagnosis of mesothelioma via a pathology report, we can begin the claims process. Since we require no fee until compensation is granted, there is no risk to you. Each trust takes a different amount of time to review your claim, some take 3 months, and others can take 6 – 12 months. As each claim is accepted we will send you the funds as soon as they are received.
If you have any further questions do not hesitate to contact our office for more information.
