What Kind of Settlement Can You Obtain From a Lockheed Shipyard Asbestos Lawsuit?

The potential settlement you can obtain from a shipyard asbestos lawsuit can vary significantly depending on several factors, including the specific circumstances of your case, the severity of your injuries, and the responsible parties.

Here are some key factors that can influence the amount of a settlement:

  • Medical Expenses: The cost of medical treatments, including diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and ongoing care, is a significant consideration in determining the settlement amount.

  • Lost Wages and Future Earnings: If you were forced to miss work due to your illness or if you can no longer work because of asbestos-related health issues, you may be entitled to compensation for past and future lost earnings.

  • Pain and Suffering: This is a non-economic component of the settlement that compensates you for the physical and emotional distress caused by asbestos-related diseases. The amount for pain and suffering is often subjective and can vary from case to case.

It’s important to note that asbestos lawsuits can result in individual settlements or as part of a larger class-action or multidistrict litigation (MDL). The exact amount of a settlement can vary widely, with some individuals receiving substantial compensation while others may receive more modest settlements.

To assess the potential settlement in your specific case, it’s essential to consult with an experienced attorney specializing in asbestos-related litigation. They can evaluate the details of your case, provide guidance on the likely outcomes, and work to secure the maximum compensation you are entitled to.

What Does an Asbestos Injury Attorney Do for Your Case?

An asbestos injury attorney plays a crucial role in representing individuals or their families who have been harmed due to asbestos exposure.

Here are some of the key tasks and services that an asbestos injury attorney typically provides for your case:

  • Investigation: Attorneys will conduct a thorough investigation to identify the sources of asbestos exposure and the responsible parties. This may involve researching your work history, identifying asbestos-containing products or materials, and determining liability.

  • Negotiation: Your attorney will engage in negotiations with the defendants or their insurers to seek a fair settlement. This may involve discussions regarding the compensation you are entitled to for your injuries and losses.

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

Asbestos injury cases are complex, and having an experienced attorney who specializes in this area of law is crucial to navigating the legal process, protecting your rights, and seeking the compensation you deserve for the harm caused by asbestos exposure.
