Compensation for Victims of Asbestos Exposure

Mesothelioma is a rare and aggressive cancer that affects the mesothelium, a thin layer of tissue covering many of the internal organs. This cancer most commonly affects the lining of the lungs but can also occur in other areas, such as the abdomen or heart. 

Mesothelioma is almost always caused by exposure to asbestos, a naturally occurring mineral that was once widely used in industrial and household settings alike for its heat-resistant properties. Mesothelioma is usually fatal once diagnosed, but symptoms may not appear until decades after exposure.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with this disease, the mesothelioma lawyers at The Gori Law Firm are here to help you and your family during this difficult time.

How Compensation for Mesothelioma Can Help

Treating mesothelioma is normally physically, emotionally, and financially draining. While no amount of money can make up for the pain and suffering caused by this disease, legal compensation can alleviate some of the associated financial burden.

Among other things, compensable mesothelioma expenses may include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Lowered earning capacity
  • Transportation to and from doctor appointments
  • Home accessibility modifications 
  • In-home care services
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Psychological suffering

Compensation through a mesothelioma lawsuit can provide financial support to cover these expenses, allowing patients to focus on what matters most: tending to their well-being and spending quality time with their loved ones.

How Long Does It Take to Receive Compensation?

The timeline for receiving compensation through mesothelioma lawsuits varies greatly depending on the specifics of each case. In general, the process can take anywhere from several months to over a year. Importantly, mesothelioma trust fund claims are often resolved more quickly than personal injury, product liability, and wrongful death lawsuits. 

Our mesothelioma attorneys have decades of experience with these claims and can give you an idea of how long your case may take to resolve after reviewing the circumstances in your free case evaluation. Do not wait to take legal action.

Who Is Eligible for Mesothelioma Compensation?

Eligibility for mesothelioma compensation typically includes the following groups:

Each case is unique, and eligibility depends on various factors, including the laws of the state where your lawsuit is filed, the specific circumstances of your asbestos exposure, and the evidence available to support your claim. Our experienced mesothelioma attorneys can assess the viability of your case and pursue compensation on your behalf.

Common Requirements for Mesothelioma Compensation

Plaintiffs in mesothelioma lawsuits and claims must meet two basic criteria to pursue compensation:

  • A confirmed medical diagnosis of mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease.
  • A history of asbestos exposure, whether through direct or secondary exposure.

Mesothelioma victims often do not know how they were exposed to asbestos. Remember, this does not disqualify you from seeking compensation. In our many years handling asbestos litigation, our law firm has accumulated extensive knowledge of known asbestos exposure sites and asbestos products. Our top-tier legal team can help you trace the source of your asbestos exposure and build a strong mesothelioma claim on your behalf.

Mesothelioma Compensation for Family Members

Surviving family members and estate representatives may be eligible for legal compensation through a wrongful death claim if their loved one has passed away due to their illness. This type of claim seeks to recover damages for losses such as loss of financial support and funeral and burial expenses. 

Eligible family members may also seek compensation through a VA benefits claim if their loved one was killed due to asbestos exposure during military service. They can also try to seek compensation through an asbestos trust fund claim.

  • The type of claim you file
  • The severity of your asbestos-related illness and its effect on your health
