If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure, I’m here to make sure you get the monetary compensation you deserve.
Mesothelioma is a devastating illness that is most frequently caused by asbestos exposure. A cancer of the lungs and chest wall, mesothelioma has severely debilitating effects and can prove fatal. If you have developed mesothelioma due to asbestos exposure, you may be entitled to monetary compensation.
How much monetary compensation will I receive?
If you have worked with asbestos, you may be able to recover compensation from several sources, including:
- The asbestos manufacturer
- The company that installed the asbestos
- Insurance company for a responsible party
- An asbestos victim’s trust fund set up by a responsible party
The amount you receive as compensation for your illness will depend on a few different things, one of which will be what funds are available. If a company was involved in asbestos exposure, chances are that multiple individuals suffered mesothelioma as a result of the company’s negligence. Over the years, these companies may have been shut down or gone bankrupt. This does not necessarily mean that you will not be able to recover anything, but it might mean that the recovery amount will be more limited.
Additionally, your personal medical history and experience with mesothelioma will determine the amount you receive. Your level of pain and suffering will be taken into account. The effect the illness has had on your quality of life is a significant factor in this analysis. Your previous medical history will be considered. The amount of expenses incurred as a result of the illness will also be a major factor in your monetary recovery. Expenses can include medical bills, cost of future medical treatment, lost wages, and loss of earning capacity.
The ability to prove that a particular company was responsible for the asbestos that caused your mesothelioma will also be a factor in your level of compensation. Questions of liability can undercut the value of a persons claim. This is true in all personal injury cases.
Mesothelioma is a serious consequence often caused by the negligence of another. You deserve to be compensated by the responsible party.
