Understanding Mesothelioma Lawsuits
The way people end up developing mesothelioma is by being exposed to asbestos, usually on a regular and prolonged basis, in the workplace or at home. Many end up with drastically reduce life expectancies and suffer greatly due to the mesothelioma cancer that they are now fighting. For many, the only way to seek compensation for their suffering due to the exposure to the unsafe material known as asbestos is to file a lawsuit. At our law firm, we fight so families do not have to suffer the loss of a loved one and those who have suffered can get the compensation they deserve.

Lawsuits are time sensitive. Normally the lawsuit is filed in the state in which you were exposed to asbestos. You’ll need to find an asbestos attorney who has a license to file a lawsuit in that state.

Lawsuits are involved and there are many steps that we will help you navigate. Ultimately, our goal is to secure the greatest compensation award possible from the judge if the case goes to trial or to push the defendant to get the most compensation for you and your family out of court. “Compensation [in these lawsuits] is linked heavily to the strength of the case, which brings into play the plaintiff’s specific diagnosis, health condition, and the degree of perceived liability on the part of one or more defendants. According to a recent Mealey’s Litigation Report, the average mesothelioma trial award is estimated at $2.4 million. The average mesothelioma settlement is between $1 million and $1.4 million and typically paid by multiple defendants” (Asbestos.com).
What is the Prognosis for Mesothelioma Patients?
“A mesothelioma prognosis is difficult to give. Mesothelioma is still a rare and relatively unknown form of cancer. It’s difficult for many doctors to predict exactly how it will progress. Because there is a limited number of patient cases, a mesothelioma prognosis isn’t always reliable” (Mesothelioma Veterans Center).
