Important Facts About Mesothelioma And Your Asbestos Exposure Claim

Not only can mesothelioma be deadly, but it is also completely preventable — which is why it is so important that the corporation that caused your condition is held accountable for putting workers like you in harm's way. Many employers and corporations continued exposing workers despite being aware of the risks.

Our team at Menges Law Firm offers complete support to our clients throughout the entirety of your lawsuit, so you can concentrate on healing and spending time with your family. We will listen to your concerns, thoroughly investigate your case and help you obtain full and fair compensation for your condition. We will pursue all avenues of compensation, of which there are four main types in mesothelioma cases:

  • Settlements — You must file a claim against a company to receive compensation for asbestos-related diseases for wrongful death or a personal injury. Most cases are settled without a trial to avoid additional costs.
  • Asbestos bankruptcy trust funds — Because many asbestos-related companies are defunct due to asbestos-related claims, victims can receive compensation from the required "asbestos trusts" set up for claims brought against them.
  • Jury awards — Your mesothelioma claim settlement amount could be decided by a jury if a company is found liable for the asbestos exposure that caused mesothelioma.
  • Veteran compensation — There are special benefits for veterans exposed to asbestos during their service time that led to mesothelioma.

Act Now To Get Compensation For Your Asbestos Claim

It's important to understand that time is of the essence when filing an asbestos exposure claim, as every state has specific deadlines and statutes of limitations that can prevent compensation if you miss the time limits for filing a lawsuit. It's important to take action now — not later — if you've been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease.
