Mesothelioma Lawsuit Settlements & Verdicts

The reason people get mesothelioma is that manufacturers of asbestos-containing products covered up the known dangers of asbestos exposure for decades. They sacrificed the health of asbestos workers for financial gain. You have a right to hold these companies liable.

If you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be eligible to recover substantial compensation through a mesothelioma lawsuit, an asbestos trust fund claim, or the VA. Financial compensation for mesothelioma can cover your medical expenses and lost wages, providing financial security and justice for you and your family.

Extent of Asbestos Exposure & Companies at Fault

Heavier asbestos exposure over extended periods has a stronger correlation to asbestos-related illnesses like mesothelioma. If you were exposed to high concentrations of asbestos over the course of decades, it becomes more difficult for the responsible company to deny responsibility. 

We have found that most people are exposed to asbestos through multiple sources. The more sources of exposure we can identify, the larger the pool of potential defendants in your case.

Strength of Evidence

Asbestos product manufacturers are generally more willing to settle for high amounts when they know they are likely to lose in court. The most effective way to show these companies that they cannot win is to present strong evidence that they will not be able to overcome in a trial.

This is the most important reason to choose a law firm with extensive experience and a winning track record. We have represented clients against hundreds of companies that manufacture asbestos products. 

We likely already have significant evidence that may convince them to settle. When necessary, our in-house investigators know how to obtain internal documents and other powerful evidence that will sway defendants into offering for the compensation you deserve.

The Experience of Your Mesothelioma Lawyer

The lawyer you choose may be the most important factor in determining the size of your settlement. Our mesothelioma lawyers have the skills and expertise to identify your sources of exposure and successfully overcome asbestos defendants’ defense tactics.

It can take months to get a mesothelioma settlement and longer if your claim goes to trial. We understand how important it is to resolve your mesothelioma case quickly.

The most important factor in maximizing the size of your mesothelioma settlement is the skill, experience, and resources available through our attorney. We take on more asbestos exposure cases every year than any other law firm.

Every state sets its own deadline in laws known as statutes of limitations for filing mesothelioma cases. The statute of limitations varies by jurisdiction but is usually one to three years after your diagnosis or after your loved one has died of mesothelioma. 

Before your case can be filed, your lawyer will need to gather evidence and build a strong case. Therefore, it is important to contact an attorney as soon as possible after your diagnosis.

Mesothelioma settlements are generally not taxable, but there are exceptions. If your case goes to trial, any punitive damages you win are taxable. You should consult with your lawyer after you receive your settlement to ensure you comply with state and federal tax laws.

We have helped thousands of clients identify asbestos exposure sources they couldn’t have discovered on their own.
