What Kind of Damages Are Available in an Empire Detroit Steel Worker Asbestos Lawsuit?

In a steel worker asbestos lawsuit, various types of damages may be available to compensate victims for the harm they have suffered due to asbestos exposure.

The specific damages awarded can vary depending on the circumstances of the case, but typically include:

  • Medical Expenses: Victims of asbestos-related diseases may be entitled to compensation for their past and future medical expenses, including doctor’s visits, hospitalization, medication, and any necessary medical procedures or treatments.

  • Lost Wages and Income: If asbestos-related illnesses have caused victims to miss work or forced them to retire prematurely, they may be awarded compensation for lost wages and future earning capacity.

  • Pain and Suffering: Victims of asbestos-related diseases often endure significant physical pain and emotional distress. They may be eligible for compensation to address their pain, suffering, and diminished quality of life.

  • Punitive Damages: In cases where the responsible party’s conduct is found to be particularly reckless, negligent, or intentional, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the wrongdoer and deter similar behavior in the future.

  • Wrongful Death Damages: In cases where the victim has succumbed to an asbestos-related disease, surviving family members may be entitled to compensation for the loss of their loved one, including funeral and burial expenses.

It’s important to note that the availability of these damages can vary by jurisdiction and the specific circumstances of each case. Additionally, the amount of compensation awarded depends on the severity of the illness, the level of negligence of the responsible parties, and other factors.

An experienced attorney specializing in asbestos-related cases can help victims and their families understand what damages may be applicable to their situation and work to secure the appropriate compensation.
