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

An asbestos and mesothelioma lawyer can help you secure various types of settlements and compensation, depending on the specifics of your case and the extent of your asbestos-related illness.

Some of the common types of settlements and compensation that these attorneys may assist you in obtaining include:

  • Personal Injury Settlements: If you are diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease such as mesothelioma and can trace your exposure to the negligence of a company or product manufacturer, a personal injury settlement may be pursued. This settlement typically covers medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, and other damages associated with your illness.

  • Wrongful Death Settlements: If a loved one has passed away due to an asbestos-related disease, a wrongful death settlement can be pursued on behalf of their estate and surviving family members. This settlement may provide compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, loss of income, and the emotional suffering of the family.

  • Workers’ Compensation: If you were exposed to asbestos while on the job, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits can help cover medical bills and lost wages resulting from asbestos-related illnesses.

The specific amount of the settlement or compensation you can secure will depend on factors such as the severity of your illness, the extent of your exposure, the responsible parties, and the jurisdiction in which you file your claim. It’s important to consult with an experienced asbestos and mesothelioma lawyer who can evaluate your case, determine the most appropriate legal avenue, and help you pursue the maximum compensation you are entitled to.

What Does an Asbestos Exposure Attorney Do for Your Case?

An asbestos exposure attorney plays a crucial role in helping victims of asbestos-related illnesses seek justice and compensation. They provide a range of legal services and support throughout the entire process, including:

  • Gathering Evidence: Your attorney will collect evidence to support your case, including medical records, employment history, witness statements, and any documentation related to your exposure. This evidence is crucial for establishing liability and demonstrating the link between asbestos exposure and your illness.

  • Filing Claims: Your attorney will prepare and file the necessary legal documents, such as complaints, with the appropriate courts or asbestos trust funds. They will ensure that all deadlines are met and that your claims are filed correctly.

  • Negotiation: Many asbestos exposure cases are resolved through negotiation or settlement. Your attorney will negotiate with the responsible parties or their insurance companies to secure a fair and just settlement that covers your damages, such as medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

  • Litigation: If a fair settlement cannot be reached, your attorney may take your case to court. They will represent you during the trial, presenting evidence and arguing your case before a judge and jury.

  • Asbestos Trust Fund Claims: If relevant, your attorney will assist you in filing claims with asbestos trust funds, helping you access compensation provided by these funds, which are set up to compensate victims of asbestos exposure.

An experienced asbestos exposure attorney is dedicated to advocating for your rights, ensuring that you receive the compensation you deserve, and holding responsible parties accountable for their negligence.
