What Kind of Settlement Can an Asbestos Injury Lawyer Help You Secure?

An asbestos injury lawyer can assist you in pursuing various types of settlements and compensation to address the damages and suffering caused by asbestos exposure.

These settlements can include:

  • Personal Injury Settlements: If you have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, or lung cancer, an attorney can help you pursue a personal injury settlement. This type of settlement is designed to compensate you for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, and other damages directly related to your illness.

  • Wrongful Death Settlements: In cases where a loved one has passed away due to asbestos-related diseases, the family may be eligible to seek a wrongful death settlement. This can help cover funeral expenses, medical bills, lost income, and provide financial support for the surviving family members.

  • Workers’ Compensation: If you were exposed to asbestos in the workplace, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. An attorney can help you navigate the workers’ compensation process to secure financial support for your medical treatment, rehabilitation, and lost wages.

  • Asbestos Trust Fund Claims: Many asbestos manufacturers and companies that exposed workers to asbestos have established trust funds to compensate victims. Asbestos injury lawyers can assist you in filing claims with these trust funds to receive compensation for your asbestos-related illness.

  • Social Security Disability Benefits: If you are unable to work due to an asbestos-related disability, an attorney can assist you in applying for Social Security Disability benefits to provide financial support for your daily living expenses.

The specific type of settlement you can secure depends on the circumstances of your asbestos exposure, the severity of your illness, and the responsible parties involved. An experienced asbestos injury lawyer will evaluate your case, gather evidence, and work to secure the maximum compensation available to you, whether through settlement negotiations, trust fund claims, or litigation, depending on the most appropriate course of action for your situation.

What Does an Asbestos Exposure Attorney Do for Your Case?

An asbestos exposure attorney plays a crucial role in helping you seek compensation and justice if you’ve been affected by asbestos-related illnesses. Their primary responsibilities and actions in your case may include:

  • Case Investigation: Attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation to identify the sources and circumstances of your asbestos exposure. This may involve gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses, and obtaining documents related to your exposure history.

  • Negotiation: Your attorney will negotiate with the responsible parties or their insurers to reach a fair settlement. They will advocate for the maximum compensation possible to cover your medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost income, and other damages.

  • Trial Representation: If a settlement cannot be reached through negotiation, your attorney will represent you in court. They will present your case to a judge and jury, arguing for your right to compensation.

An experienced asbestos exposure attorney understands the complex legal landscape surrounding asbestos-related claims and will work tirelessly to secure the compensation and justice you deserve.
