Mesothelioma Settlement Lawsuits

What Are Mesothelioma Settlements?

Mesothelioma settlements are financial awards to asbestos exposure victims who develop malignant Mesothelioma as a direct result of the negligence of asbestos companies.

Most Mesothelioma lawsuits will never go to trial. Mesothelioma settlement amounts are agreed upon by both parties to avoid a long trial.

How Much Are Settlements Worth?

The amount of settlement compensation for a Mesothelioma claim can depend on various factors involved in the negotiation with the asbestos companies. Determining factors during negotiations in a Mesothelioma settlement can include:

Mesothelioma Settlement Factors Include:

Asbestos Exposure History
Children
Lost Wages
Medical Expenses
Other Dependents
Pain and Suffering
Type of Diagnosis

Mesothelioma Settlements Process

4 Steps in the Mesothelioma Claim Process

Step 1: Filing of Case – This will determine which asbestos companies are liable to file your claim against. Claimants will need to provide evidence of their workplace asbestos exposure.

Step 2: Review of Case – Trustees will review your claim, medical history and asbestos exposure. This allows them to determine if you claim meets their criteria for financial compensation.

Step 3: Liquidation – Trustees will determine how much financial compensation to payout. A Mesothelioma lawyer can negotiate individual claim for a larger settlement than the fixed amount set up by asbestos trust funds.


Step 4: Compensation Payment – When an agreement is reached with an asbestos company or asbestos trust fund the settlement amount is paid to the victim.

Mesothelioma Statute of Limitations

Statutes of Limitations is the period of time a Mesothelioma victim has to file a lawsuit. 


The Statute of Limitations for Mesothelioma and asbestos exposure varies from state to state.


The Statute of Limitations for Mesothelioma begins when a person is either diagnosed or dies, not the date of their exposure.


An experienced Mesothelioma attorney can help you file a claim before your Statutes of Limitations expires.

To settle or put your fate in the hands of a jury verdict is best made with the counsel of an experienced Mesothelioma lawyer.
