What Kind of Damages Are Available in a Workplace Exposure Cancer Lawsuit?

In a workplace exposure cancer lawsuit, various types of damages may be available to the affected individual or their family, depending on the circumstances of the case and the applicable laws.

These damages can help compensate for the physical, emotional, and financial hardships caused by the cancer resulting from occupational exposure. The specific types of damages that may be awarded include:

  • Medical Expenses: Damages can cover the costs associated with cancer diagnosis, treatment, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, prescription medications, hospital stays, and ongoing medical care.

  • Lost Wages: If the individual is unable to work due to cancer or treatment-related disabilities, they may be entitled to compensation for lost wages, including both past and future income.

  • Pain and Suffering: Non-economic damages are designed to compensate for the physical and emotional pain, suffering, and diminished quality of life resulting from the cancer diagnosis and its treatment.

  • Wrongful Death Damages: In cases where a loved one has succumbed to cancer due to workplace exposure, surviving family members may be entitled to wrongful death damages, which can cover funeral and burial expenses, loss of financial support, and loss of companionship.

  • Punitive Damages: In some cases, where the employer’s actions are deemed particularly reckless or willful, punitive damages may be awarded to punish the employer and deter future misconduct.

It’s important to note that the availability and calculation of damages can vary depending on the jurisdiction, the specific facts of the case, and the legal standards in place.

Consult with an experienced attorney specializing in workplace exposure cancer cases to better understand the potential damages applicable to your situation and to navigate the legal process effectively. 

What Does an Occupational Exposure Injury Lawyer Do for Your Case?

An occupational exposure injury lawyer, also known as a workplace injury attorney, plays a crucial role in helping individuals who have suffered harm due to workplace-related hazards.

Here are the key responsibilities and actions that such a lawyer typically undertakes to support your case:
