Our Eligibility & Screening Criteria in Mesothelioma Cases

At Atraxia Media, we apply best practices to find and onboard clients who are a good fit for your law firm based on your criteria. Your law firm needs a marketing partner who will respond promptly when a potential client reaches out. That is why our marketing and intake procedure is thorough and includes the following steps:

  • Pre-screening. This phase is an essential first step in the process. Before going any further, we need enough information to decide whether a potential client is a good fit for your firm.
  • Screening each case. We use your intake questionnaire for interviewing clients and gathering the information you'll need to help them with their case.
  • Following up on all of our calls. We use an excellent client-retention strategy: if the lead qualifies, we schedule a follow-up call.
  • Signing only those cases that meet your eligibility requirements. We understand that working with the ideal client from the start is critical to your firm's success. Once medical data are obtained, it has to be a potential case that will turn into a solid one.
  • Developing a steady stream of qualifying cases for your law firm. Our goal is to assist you in reaching a more significant number of new clients.
  • Developing and implementing a case-generating marketing strategy. We ensure no potential claimants go unnoticed.
  • Getting you cases that are unique and not offered to anyone else.

Potential clients may qualify to take part in a mesothelioma lawsuit if they meet the following criteria:

  • They can provide documentation of the mesothelioma diagnosis, including medical reports from the cancer center where they were treated.
  • They can document the asbestos exposure history that caused the mesothelioma with employment records and detailed descriptions and testimony.

We can quickly identify injured people eligible to file a mesothelioma lawsuit. And our in-house team can screen and sign mesothelioma cases especially for your campaign. To start, all we need to know is how many cases you require.

Mesothelioma Facts & History

In the first quarter of 2021, mesothelioma filings saw a decline - 5% lower than in 2020 and 17% lower than in 2019. For the first quarter of 2020, mesothelioma claims made up 53% of the asbestos litigation. Mesothelioma filings saw increases in Orleans, New York, Wayne County, Richland, and Alameda, and decreases in locations like Los Angeles, Madison County, Cook, Middlesex, and St. Louis.

Relevant mesothelioma lawsuits are transferred to MDL 875. Created in 1991, this is the multidistrict litigation for asbestos federal mass tort cases. MDL 875 is the longest-lasting and one of the largest MDLs in the Federal courts. In April 2021, in MDL 875, there were 24 pending actions and a total of 192,118 cases.

Mesothelioma is a type of cancer that is caused only by exposure to asbestos. Mesothelioma lawsuits have helped hundreds of thousands of people receive compensation from companies that exposed them to the dangerous material. Recently, verdicts point to Johnson & Johnson's asbestos-contaminated baby powder also being responsible for the development of mesothelioma.
