What Kind of Settlement Can a Bechtel Corp Asbestos Exposure Lawyer Help You Secure?

Here are some common forms of settlements and compensation that an attorney can help you secure:

  • Asbestos Trust Fund Claims: Many companies, including Bechtel Corporation, have established asbestos trust funds to compensate asbestos victims. A lawyer can help you navigate the process of filing a claim with these trust funds to secure financial compensation.

  • Personal Injury Claims: If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness, such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, or lung cancer, you may be eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against Bechtel Corp. A successful claim can result in compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost income.

  • Wrongful Death Claims: In cases where a loved one has passed away due to asbestos-related illnesses, a lawyer can help you file a wrongful death claim on behalf of the deceased’s estate. This can secure compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, and the emotional suffering of surviving family members.

  • Product Liability Claims: If Bechtel Corp was involved in manufacturing or supplying asbestos-containing products, a lawyer can assist you in filing a product liability claim to seek compensation for injuries caused by these products.

  • Workers’ Compensation: If you were exposed to asbestos while on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. An attorney can help you pursue these benefits, which typically cover medical expenses and a portion of your lost wages.

The specific type and amount of compensation you may be eligible for will depend on the unique circumstances of your case, including the extent of your injuries, the duration and level of asbestos exposure, and the jurisdiction in which your claim is filed.

An experienced Bechtel Corp asbestos exposure lawyer can assess your situation, build a strong case, and advocate on your behalf to secure the maximum possible compensation, ensuring your rights are protected.
