What Is a Mesothelioma Wrongful Death Lawsuit?

A wrongful death lawsuit is a type of legal action through which surviving family members may recover monetary compensation for the damages they suffered because of their loved one’s death.

A wrongful death claim is an option for mesothelioma victims’ families because the only known cause of the disease is asbestos exposure. A mountain of evidence has shown that asbestos companies knew about the dangers of their products for decades but withheld this information from the public and workers. Therefore, families can seek compensation from these companies for damages related to their loved one’s death.

How Do Mesothelioma Wrongful Death Settlements Work?

Most asbestos claims after death, including those for mesothelioma, result in a settlement. A settlement agreement between the parties resolves the legal dispute without going to trial.

Typically, a mesothelioma settlement after death involves a financial payout to the mesothelioma victim’s close relatives. The company may be a manufacturer of asbestos-containing products or a party responsible for exposing the victim to asbestos in some other way, such as through their work environment.

How to File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit After Death

Each mesothelioma lawsuit is different, but most share the following common elements.

Consult an Attorney

Schedule a free consultation with an attorney experienced in mesothelioma litigation. The Gori Law Firm can help you determine if you have a case. If so, we will outline your options and give you the information you need to decide whether a lawsuit is the right path forward.

Collect Evidence

If you decide to proceed with a mesothelioma lawsuit, your legal team will help you gather evidence to support your claim. Such evidence may include medical records, occupation history, death records, bills and receipts, and other relevant documents.

Discovery Phase

During the discovery phase, your attorneys will exchange evidence and information with the defendant. This step allows both parties to build their case with fair access to all relevant details.

Negotiate a Settlement

After reviewing all the evidence, the defendant may decide to settle the case without going to trial. While a settlement is never guaranteed, it’s a common outcome of mesothelioma lawsuits due to the vast amount of evidence linking mesothelioma to asbestos exposure.

Go to Trial

The case will go to trial if the parties cannot reach a fair settlement. Both sides will present their arguments and evidence to a jury or judge, who will decide whether to award damages and in what amount.

Compensation Available in Mesothelioma Lawsuits

The compensation recoverable in a mesothelioma wrongful death lawsuit aims to cover the economic and non-economic losses resulting from the victim’s death.

Economic losses compensate for the financial damages caused by your loved one’s illness and death, including medical expenses, Funeral and burial costs, lost income the deceased would have earned, and lost support from the deceased.

Non-economic damages compensate for the emotional suffering caused by the death, including grief, loss of society and companionship, and loss of consortium.

The amount of asbestos compensation after death depends on various factors, such as the victim’s age, income, and work history.
