Mesothelioma Settlements

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 lengthy 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:

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, allowing 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 an individual claim for a larger settlement than the fixed amount set up by asbestos trust funds.  


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

Mesothelioma Statute of Limitations

Asbestos Trust Funds have a strict Statute of Limitations.


Statutes of Limitations is the 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.

Mesothelioma Settlements vs Verdicts

There is always a risk of going to trial because Mesothelioma cases can be very complicated. When placing your outcome in the hands of a jury, whose opinions are easily swayed, a crafty defense counsel can be risky. There is no guarantee the jury will side with you.


In most Mesothelioma cases jury verdicts may result in more substantial financial awards. While the amount awarded in a Mesothelioma settlement may be smaller than a trial verdict, you are at least guaranteed some compensation.


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

Veterans Eligible for Asbestos Trust Fund Settlements

Veterans diagnosed with Mesothelioma have legal rights and may be eligible to recover compensation from negligent asbestos companies and asbestos trust funds. There are approximately 25 million veterans in the U. S. Military United States.


U.S. Navy Ships contained more than 300 asbestos-containing products and materials that were used regularly in the constructions of ships until 1980. Thousands of military veterans served on U. S. Navy ships, with the peak exposure years from 1930-1980. 


Asbestos products onboard ships included insulation, pipes, boilers, cement, sealers, gaskets, cables, tubes, valves, electrical fixtures, wiring, pumps, decking, paints, non-skid flooring, and in bulk headwalls, ship hulls, mess halls, engine rooms, navigation rooms, and sleeping quarters.


Military personnel most at risk include boilermakers, electrician's mates, enginemen, demolition workers, machinist mates, mechanics, metalsmiths, repairmen, pipefitters, ship fitters, technicians, welders, and civilian contractors.


1 out of 3 veterans will develop an asbestos-related disease in their lifetime.
