How Much Money Can I Expect To Get From A Mesothelioma Lawsuit?

Helping Mesothelioma Victims and Their Families In Louisiana and Across The Country

If you, or a family member, have been exposed to asbestos and recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you’re likely looking for answers to the many questions you have.

Perhaps the two most common questions we hear from our mesothelioma clients are:

  1. Can I expect to collect any money from a lawsuit?
  2. If I file a mesothelioma lawsuit, how much money will I receive?

If it can be proven that you, or your family member, were exposed to asbestos, then the likelihood of receiving significant money damages is good.

How much you, or your family, will receive varies greatly because it depends on a number of factors, such as:

  • Will the case be settled or go to trial;
  • The costs of medical expenses;
  • Lost wages;
  • And other damages that can be secured by a lawsuit.

When it’s proven that you or a family member were exposed to asbestos – and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, there is an excellent chance of receiving a substantial award or settlement for damages.

The money that is paid to mesothelioma victims comes from the company that manufactured or installed the asbestos, or from a large insurance company or asbestos victims’ trust fund.

Although awards in mesothelioma cases can be in the millions, each case is dependent on its own facts and circumstances.
