What Kind of Damages Are Available in a Power Company Asbestos Lawsuit?

In a power company asbestos lawsuit, victims may be eligible to seek various types of damages to compensate them for the harm they have suffered due to asbestos exposure. 

Here’s an overview of the types of damages that may be sought:

  • Medical Expenses: This includes compensation for past, current, and future medical bills related to the diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of asbestos-related illnesses, such as mesothelioma, asbestosis, or lung cancer.

  • Lost Wages: Victims may seek reimbursement for lost income, including past and future earnings, if they were unable to work or had to reduce their work hours due to asbestos-related illnesses.

  • Funeral and Burial Expenses: In wrongful death cases, the family of a deceased victim may seek reimbursement for the costs associated with the funeral and burial.

  • Pain and Suffering: This category encompasses the physical and emotional suffering experienced as a result of asbestos-related illnesses. It is often challenging to quantify but may be a significant component of compensation.

  • Punitive Damages: In cases where the actions of the power company are found to be particularly egregious or reckless, punitive damages may be awarded as a means of punishing the company and deterring future misconduct.

It’s important to note that the availability and calculation of damages can vary by jurisdiction and the specific facts of the case. An experienced attorney specializing in asbestos litigation will be able to assess the circumstances of your case and help you determine the types of damages you may be eligible to pursue.

Additionally, we can assist in quantifying these damages to ensure you receive fair and just compensation for the harm you’ve endured due to power company asbestos exposure.
