If you just got diagnosed with mesothelioma, it likely floored you like a heavyweight punch. Coming to terms with such a devastating diagnosis is tough, especially around the holidays when you may feel forced to put on a false, hearty demeanor.
Your first concern should always be for your health, seeking treatment and managing your condition to be able to make the most out of the time that you have left. Your oncologist can provide you with an individualized treatment plan that maximizes your good days while minimizing your bad days.
But there is more that you can do during this time. You can proactively seek compensation from past employers for the workplace exposures to asbestos that left your body debilitated with mesothelioma. By filing asbestos litigation against those responsible for your diagnosis, you can recover compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages and a host of other potential damages.
Your family members, too, can also become plaintiffs under some circumstances. Sometimes that may be under a wrongful death lawsuit after you have passed away. Other times, it may be for secondary exposures to cancer-causing asbestos through direct transfers of the deadly fibers from you to them from work clothes or vehicles.
Seeking reparation for the injustice of being exposed to a toxic substance on the job can hold those who profited from your labor accountable for their lax safety standards. Our attorneys have experience in the field of asbestos litigation and are always willing to fight for our clients suffering from mesothelioma.
