Mesothelioma is different from other types of cancers. Someone could be at fault for your diagnosis. Are you ready to find out? Contact our reputable mesothelioma lawyers at Monge & Associates today to see if you have grounds for a lawsuit.
Below, we go into further detail about what mesothelioma is and how you could be compensated by the liable party or parties.
What Causes Mesothelioma?
Unlike some other types of cancers, we know what causes mesothelioma. In most cases, mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. This asbestos exposure can then cause the growth of tumors in the stomach, heart, and other organs, but primarily the lungs.
Up until the late 1970s, asbestos was commonly found and used by construction workers. Those handling contaminated materials were later diagnosed with mesothelioma. The same remains for today, since many homes were built before asbestos was banned from use in the building of properties.
It may be difficult to determine who is at fault for your mesothelioma diagnosis, but if you are a tenant, a construction worker, or anyone else who might have been exposed to mesothelioma, you may be entitled to full restitution.
Compensation for Victims of Asbestos Exposure
When mesothelioma takes over your life because of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to be made whole. This means that you can be compensated for all of the ways your life has been affected by your diagnosis. You should be sure to seek compensation for both economic (financial) and non-economic (non-financial) losses, some of which could include:
- Lost income
- Diminished earning capacity
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of companionship and love
- Loss of society and support
- Pain and suffering
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Past, current, and future medical expenses
- Emotional distress
- Reputational damage
- Costs of household maintenance
- Childcare expenses
These are only a few of the various losses you could be awarded in your mesothelioma claim. Your lawyer will closely review all of the ways your life has been negatively impacted and may continue to be in the future, to calculate the value of your lawsuit.
