How Do People Get Mesothelioma?
Mesothelioma occurs due to inhaling asbestos fibers, which can occur in various work environments such as construction sites, shipyards, automotive repair shops, and old buildings. Up until 1989, asbestos was commonly used in insulation, roofing, and other building materials.
When these materials are disturbed, asbestos fibers can become airborne and inhaled. The risk increases with prolonged or repeated exposure, and mesothelioma typically develops decades after the initial exposure.
What Legal Options Are There for Mesothelioma Patients?
Mesothelioma patients file a personal injury lawsuit against the companies responsible for the asbestos exposure. In cases where the company is bankrupt, patients can file claims against asbestos trust funds set up by these companies.
Additionally, if the exposure occurred at work, workers' compensation claims may be an option. Veterans exposed to asbestos during military service can seek benefits through the Department of Veterans Affairs.
An experienced mesothelioma attorney from our team can provide guidance on the best legal avenues based on the specifics of your case.
How Long Will It Take To Obtain Compensation for Mesothelioma?
Several factors will influence how long it would take to obtain compensation for mesothelioma.
The complexity of the case is the single most important factor, followed by the legal process chosen (lawsuit, trust fund claim, workers' compensation, etc).
That said, some cases may settle in a matter of months, especially if both sides agree to avoid lengthy and expensive court battles. Others, particularly those that go to trial, can take several years.
What if My Loved One Died Due to Mesothelioma?
In the unfortunate event that a loved one dies due to mesothelioma, you might be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Through this lawsuit, family members can seek compensation for the following:
- medical expenses incurred before death;
- funeral and burial costs;
- loss of income and support;
- and loss of companionship.
The specifics of who can file and the types of recoverable damages can vary from case to case. That's why having your case reviewed by a mesothelioma expert from our team is advisable.
What if I'm Being Blamed for Asbestos Exposure?
Being blamed for your own asbestos exposure could be a tactic by the defense to reduce their liability or discourage you from fighting for what you deserve as compensation for their negligence. Don't fall for these tricks. Instead, you should have your case reviewed by a Morgan and Morgan mesothelioma expert.
