Damages available to those diagnosed with mesothelioma

On Behalf of | Aug 6, 2021 | Personal Injury |

No amount of money or lawsuits can turn back time and prevent a person from being exposed to asbestos.

However, financial awards can be crucial when a person learns they have been diagnosed with a related illness like mesothelioma.

Different types of damages available

Depending on the outcome of a case, people with mesothelioma and their families could receive money to acknowledge a host of personal injury damages. These damages include:

  • Financial damages, including medical bills, costs related to traveling for treatment and past and future lost wages
  • Non-economic damages, including pain and suffering as well as emotional distress and loss of personal relationships and support
  • Punitive damages, which could be available in cases involving egregious misconduct, specifically to punish the wrongdoer

Too often, people underestimate the compensation they deserve after exposure to asbestos.

They may not know it is possible to collect future medical costs and compensate loved ones who have lost someone exposed to asbestos. And they may not understand how to anticipate the financial toll that this type of illness can take on victims and family members.

Further, parties like insurance companies are not in the business of explaining to victims just how much money they stand to receive for negligence and wrongful death, meaning people can make decisions based on partial or inaccurate information. 

Getting the resolution you deserve

To ensure you make informed choices that are in your and your family’s best interests, you can seek legal guidance of your own. 

With legal support, you can negotiate a settlement or prepare a claim for trial. Your precise options and the best option for you depend on your specific situation and the details of your health and exposure. 

Again, money is not going to undo a devastating diagnosis. However, it can make it easier for parties to cope with the situation, secure necessary treatment and hold parties accountable for what they have done.

Thus, whether you wish to pursue a legal claim primarily to seek compensation or hold parties accountable for negligent exposure, filing a lawsuit can make it possible to get the support and closure you deserve.
