So...dad's life is coming to an end. He's leaving the hospital and returning home. My wife (an RN) is moving in with them to provide 24/7 care, and Hospice is providing the rest. Terminal mesothelioma. His oncologist asked (almost suggested) to mom that she should seek compensation, since funds have been set aside specifically for cases like his. Mom wants to pursue this, so I'm helping. He worked in the boiler room as a steam fitter for GM for 36 years. He's a poster child for mesothelioma. I've spoken by phone with a couple of the "asbestos.com" law firms...and all of them have had pretty much the same response: "He worked where? Doing What? For how long? He's been diagnosed?....We'll overnight the paperwork to you right now." Has anyone here in the brain trust had any experience with the whole mesothelioma process? I hate lawyers. God, I do. But if this means dad's medical expenses won't force mom to sell her home and move in with one of her kids, I'll knock down walls.
