An estimated $30 Billion for mesothelioma cases has been set aside to help victims of asbestos exposure cover their medical expenses, lost wages, and living expenses. Here are just a few of the mesothelioma lawsuit settlements our mesothelioma lawyers have won for their clients:
Pipefitter receives $10.5 Million settlement
After experiencing ongoing chest and back pain, a man underwent diagnostic tests and exploratory surgery. A subsequent biopsy resulted in a diagnosis of mesothelioma. The victim had extensive exposure to asbestos-containing products from a young age, working primarily as a pipefitter and maintenance man in refineries and foundries in the West and Southwest. The victim received settlements of $10.5 Million from multiple defendants.
Manual laborer receives $6.5 Million settlement
A man developed mesothelioma after working as a gas station attendant, boilermaker, maintenance worker, assembler, and steelworker, among other jobs. He filed a lawsuit, claiming his employers neither utilized best practices nor used available alternatives to asbestos. 143 corporations were named in the lawsuit. The victim and his family received a settlement of $6.5 Million.
Navy veteran and mechanic receives $5.5 Million settlement
A U.S. Navy veteran, who served in the 1970s, also worked for 3 decades as an auto mechanic and demolition laborer before going on disability as a result of mesothelioma. He received the diagnosis in 2009, after doctors did a follow-up exam related to a spot on one of his lungs. He received a settlement of $5.5 Million.
Every case is different, and prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome. Compensation, if awarded, varies per client and is based on specific facts of the case.
