Determining Asbestos Lung Cancer Settlement Amounts

Asbestos lung cancer settlement amounts are influenced by many factors, which the defendant's legal team and your attorneys will consider during settlement negotiations.

Factors that can affect asbestos lung cancer settlement amounts include: 

  • Extent of Asbestos Exposure: If you were exposed to multiple products that contained asbestos, you may be eligible for compensation from each of the companies that contributed to your illness.
  • Medical Expenses: The cost of lung cancer treatments often add up quickly, and these expenses can influence the settlement you may receive.
  • Severity of Your Illness: How advanced your lung cancer is plays a role in determining compensation, as late-stage cancer may result in a greater possible settlement amount.
  • Lost Wages: If you’re unable to work due to your lung cancer diagnosis, your loss of earning potential may be considered when determining your settlement amount.
  • Strength of Evidence: We have warehouses of evidence on asbestos job site locations, products, and companies — and we can pinpoint and pursue compensation from all of the companies responsible.
  • Experience of Your Lawyer: Working with an experienced asbestos lawyer may help you receive the most asbestos lung cancer compensation possible. For over 45 years, our firm has helped thousands of asbestos exposure victims across the country secure compensation for their illnesses.

Your legal team will evaluate each of these factors while fighting for the maximum asbestos lung cancer compensation available in your case.
