Asbestos exposure from working and living in old buildings has led to the development of mesothelioma and other tragic conditions and diseases. Unfortunately, companies who manufacture materials that contain asbestos have often been more concerned about profits than protecting consumers from their products’ harmful effects. Manufacturers have a legal obligation to inform their employees and the public about the dangers and risks associated with their products.

If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you may be eligible for compensation for economic and non-economic losses related to your disease. Mesothelioma lawsuits protect the legal rights of people who have been harmed after their unknown exposure to asbestos. Standing up to large manufacturers and their intimidating legal teams is difficult, if not impossible, to do alone. The Goldwater Law Firm is here to help.

What Can Compensation Cover?

People who are exposed to asbestos for a long period of time are more likely to develop mesothelioma. The American Cancer Society warns that the risk of mesothelioma does not decrease after exposure to asbestos stops. Those who develop mesothelioma after asbestos exposure because of the negligence of another deserve to be compensated for losses related to their condition.

Compensatory damages provide money to mesothelioma patients for economic and non-economic losses related to their diagnosis. Examples of common expenses for mesothelioma patients include:

  • Medical treatment costs
  • Caregiver costs
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Mental health services

Be sure to save all medical bills, financial records, and information related to your losses and illness, so your mesothelioma lawyer can build the strongest case possible on your behalf.

In mesothelioma trial verdicts, you may be awarded punitive damages in addition to your compensatory damages. This type of compensation is intended to financially punish the defendant for their negligence.

Asbestos Exposure: The Primary Link to Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma is an aggressive and life-threatening form of cancer. While there are some treatments, many mesothelioma patients cannot be cured. Mesothelioma often affects the tissue surrounding the lungs, leading to chest pain, coughing, difficulty breathing, and unexplained weight loss, among other complications.

Asbestos exposure is believed to be the primary factor in mesothelioma development. A naturally-occurring mineral, asbestos fibers are strong and heat-resistant, giving it a wide variety of uses, such as insulation, brakes, shingles, and flooring.

When broken up during mining or for construction purposes, asbestos creates dust.
If a person inhales or swallows this dust, it can cause asbestos fibers to settle in their lungs, which can eventually lead to mesothelioma.

Exposure to asbestos fibers at home or work greatly increases your risk of developing mesothelioma.
