What Kind of Damages Are Available in a Ford Motor Asbestos Lawsuit?

In a Ford Motor asbestos lawsuit, individuals who have been exposed to asbestos and subsequently developed asbestos-related illnesses may be eligible to seek various types of damages. The specific damages available can vary depending on the circumstances of the case, the jurisdiction in which the lawsuit is filed, and the strength of the evidence presented.

Common types of damages that can be pursued in Ford Motor asbestos lawsuits include:

  • Medical Expenses: Plaintiffs may seek compensation for past, current, and future medical bills related to the diagnosis and treatment of asbestos-related illnesses, including conditions such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, and lung cancer.

  • Lost Wages: If the asbestos-related illness has resulted in lost income, plaintiffs can seek damages for the wages they were unable to earn due to their illness. This may include both past and future lost earnings.

  • Pain and Suffering: Damages for physical and emotional pain and suffering resulting from the asbestos-related illness are often a significant component of compensation in these cases.

  • Wrongful Death Expenses: In cases where the plaintiff has passed away due to asbestos-related illness, their surviving family members may seek compensation for the expenses associated with the funeral and burial.

  • Punitive Damages: In certain circumstances, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the defendant (in this case, Ford Motor) for their negligent or reckless behavior in exposing individuals to asbestos.

It’s important to note that asbestos-related lawsuits can be highly complex, and the types and amounts of damages awarded can vary widely based on individual circumstances.

If you or a loved one is considering an asbestos lawsuit against Ford Motor, it is advisable to consult with an experienced asbestos attorney to assess your legal options and the potential damages you may be eligible to seek.
