Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is caused by asbestos exposure. If you have been recently diagnosed, your exposure probably occurred somewhere between 20 and 50 years ago. The majority of mesothelioma victims were exposed at work. Mesothelioma typically goes undetected until the final stages when it is too late to treat the cancer. Most victims have less than a year to live.

Asbestosis
Asbestosis is another illness caused by asbestos exposure. It is more common than mesothelioma. Asbestosis is not cancer, but it can kill you. Like mesothelioma, there is no cure for asbestosis. However, there are treatments that can help you live longer and improve your quality of life.

Compensation for Asbestos Injuries
No amount of money can make up for the fact that your life has been cut short and that you have a disease which is almost always very painful. However, financial compensation can pay for your medical bills and help ensure your family’s financial future. If your mesothelioma was diagnosed in the early stages, you may be able to benefit from cutting-edge treatments that can greatly extend your life. However, the best mesothelioma treatments are expensive.

The companies that manufacture and use asbestos have knowingly chosen to expose their workers and the general public to a deadly substance. You can hold these companies financially responsible. You may be eligible for compensation including:

  • Medical bills and other expenses related to your medical care
  • Future medical expenses
  • Lost income
  • Future lost income
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Disability
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Wrongful death
