What Kind of Damages Are Available in a General Motors Asbestos Lawsuit?

In a General Motors (GM) asbestos lawsuit, the available damages typically depend on the specific circumstances of the case and the laws in the jurisdiction where the lawsuit is filed.

These lawsuits are generally brought by individuals who have been exposed to asbestos-containing materials or products associated with GM and have subsequently developed asbestos-related illnesses.

The damages available in such cases may include:

  • Medical Expenses: Plaintiffs can seek compensation for past and future medical costs related to the diagnosis, treatment, and management of asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, or asbestosis.
  • Lost Wages: Damages may be awarded for the income lost due to the plaintiff’s inability to work as a result of their asbestos-related illness.
  • Pain and Suffering: Compensation may be available to address the physical and emotional suffering experienced by the plaintiff due to their illness.
  • Punitive Damages: In cases where a defendant’s conduct is found to be particularly reckless, willful, or egregious, punitive damages may be awarded. These damages are intended to punish the defendant and deter similar conduct in the future.
    • Wrongful Death Damages: If the plaintiff in the asbestos lawsuit has passed away due to an asbestos-related disease, their surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death claim. Damages may include funeral expenses, loss of financial support, and loss of consortium.

    It’s important to note that asbestos-related lawsuits can be complex and can vary based on factors such as the extent of exposure, the specific asbestos-containing materials or products involved, and the laws in the jurisdiction where the lawsuit is filed. Additionally, these cases may involve multiple defendants, as asbestos exposure can occur in various occupational and environmental settings.

    If you or someone you know is considering filing an asbestos lawsuit related to General Motors or another company, it’s essential to consult with an experienced attorney who specializes in asbestos litigation. We can help you understand the specific damages that may be available in your case and guide you through the legal process effectively.

    What Does an Asbestos and Mesothelioma Lawyer Do for Your Case?

    An asbestos and mesothelioma lawyer plays a critical role in helping individuals and their families who have been affected by asbestos exposure and have developed asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma.

    Here’s what an asbestos and mesothelioma lawyer does for your case:

    • Assessment of Your Case: The attorney will carefully review your case to determine its merits, evaluate the extent of your asbestos exposure, assess the nature of your asbestos-related illness, and identify potential liable parties.
    • Gathering Evidence: Your lawyer will collect relevant evidence, including medical records, employment history, and information about asbestos-containing products or materials to which you were exposed. They may also identify witnesses and experts.
    • Determining Liability: Your attorney will identify the parties or companies that may be legally responsible for your asbestos-related injuries. This could include asbestos manufacturers, employers, or property owners where exposure occurred.
    • Pursuing Compensation: Your attorney will engage in negotiations with the responsible parties or their insurance companies to seek a fair settlement. They will advocate for compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages.
    • Filing Lawsuits: If a settlement cannot be reached through negotiations, your attorney will file a lawsuit on your behalf and represent you in court. They will present evidence, expert testimonies, and legal arguments.

      Asbestos and mesothelioma lawyers are specialists in asbestos litigation and are well-versed in the complexities of these cases.
