Mesothelioma Attorneys Handling Claims in Delaware

Although Delaware is considered the most corporate-friendly state, it also has seen a huge influx of mesothelioma cases since 2005, 80% of which were with out-of-state plaintiffs. This may seem counterintuitive, but Delaware also has many rules in place that make it easier for plaintiff attorneys to succeed with their mesothelioma lawsuits.

Additionally, Delaware’s attorney general is Beau Biden, son of Vice President Joe Biden. Before Mr. Biden became attorney general, he was a mesothelioma lawyer.
