How You May Recover Compensation Through An Asbestos Exposure Claim
After becoming ill and receiving a diagnosis of a disease like mesothelioma, money may be far from your mind at first. You want your health back! You want your carefree future back! No one wants to live under the cloud of a discouraging mesothelioma diagnosis. With treatments and therapies, you may preserve your quality of life for some time. But no one will blame you for worrying about the financial and other pressures that mesothelioma may continue to bring to you and your family.
Our legal system includes an area of the law known as torts, whereby people who have been injured or wronged can pursue compensation from negligent parties. When the harm includes damage to one’s health, financial compensation can bring much-needed relief by covering:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wage replacement
- Acknowledgment of pain and suffering
At D’Amico Law Offices, we work hard to investigate and document our clients’ mesothelioma and asbestos cases. Namely, we gather medical reports and prognoses while also pinpointing the likely source of someone’s exposure to asbestos. Through the discovery process, we compile compelling legal claims and file lawsuits as needed to help our clients recover compensation through all available options.
Dollars And Dreams In The Face Of A Tough Diagnosis
As for how much a case may be worth, here are some basics to know:
- Asbestos trusts put together by companies in bankruptcy to address litigation have totaled about $30 billion. These trusts have helped many worthy claimants recover compensation for mesothelioma.
- A typical payout for a full-blown mesothelioma case is about $1 million or more. This is not, of course, a projection of what you may receive if you win your case. However, it can help you envision a way to pay the bills and cope with the difficulties associated with the progression of your mesothelioma.
- The average person does not have the skills and experience that our attorneys have in putting together successful asbestos/mesothelioma claims that will likely bring in robust compensation. And our attorneys our local, with a thorough understanding of our region and its hard workers.
You may dream of your mesothelioma going away. More practically, you can hope that your family will not suffer financial ruin as your mesothelioma continues to threaten your well-being. Our litigation team is here to be your strong and effective advocates.
