Will I have to go to court in my asbestos lawsuit?

The answer to this question depends on whether a Massachusetts asbestos attorney and the negligent party can come to a fair agreement. If they cannot, the case may have to go to court to be heard before a judge and jury. Only a very small percentage of asbestos lawsuits go to court, so there is a very good chance that your case will settle and not require you to attend court hearings.
