What Kind of Damages Are Available in a Paper Mill Asbestos Lawsuit?

In a paper mill asbestos lawsuit, individuals who have been exposed to asbestos and subsequently developed asbestos-related diseases may be eligible to pursue various types of damages. 

Here are the common types of damages that may be available in a paper mill asbestos lawsuit:

  • Medical Expenses: Plaintiffs can seek compensation for past, present, and future medical costs associated with the diagnosis, treatment, and management of asbestos-related diseases. This can include expenses such as doctor’s visits, hospital stays, surgery, medication, and rehabilitation.

  • Lost Wages: If the exposure to asbestos resulted in the victim’s inability to work or reduced earning capacity, they can seek compensation for lost income. This may include past and future income that they would have earned had they not been afflicted by the disease.

  • Pain and Suffering: Plaintiffs may be entitled to non-economic damages for the physical and emotional pain and suffering they have endured as a result of the asbestos-related disease. This can be a significant component of the damages in asbestos cases, as these diseases can be painful and life-altering.

  • Punitive Damages: In some cases, where the defendant’s actions are deemed particularly egregious or willful, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the responsible party and deter similar conduct in the future.

  • Wrongful Death Damages: If the individual exposed to asbestos has passed away due to asbestos-related diseases, their surviving family members may file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation for funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support, and the emotional impact of their loved one’s death.

It’s important to note that asbestos litigation can be complex, and the availability and calculation of damages will depend on various factors, including the specific asbestos exposure history, the extent of the disease, the jurisdiction’s laws, and the strength of the evidence in the case.

It’s advisable to consult with an experienced asbestos attorney who can assess your situation, explain your legal options, and help you pursue the appropriate damages in your paper mill asbestos lawsuit.

The Statute of Limitations for Asbestos Cases

Asbestos can be found in factories, warehouses, hospitals, schools, homes built before 1980, construction sites, and in many military installations. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), there are 75 different jobs that can expose workers to asbestos, with those jobs primarily involving construction and manufacturing. Thousands of American workers are still exposed to asbestos each year.
