How Does a Mesothelioma Claim Work?

If you file a claim for mesothelioma the chances are that the claim will never reach a jury and could only take a year to be settled. Those cases which go to trial can take much longer.

In the case of mesothelioma, each case must be filed individually as each person’s prognosis, symptoms and medical history are different.

The amount of money the plaintiff will receive can be difficult to estimate as it depends on the type of mesothelioma the plaintiff is suffering from, the amount of lost wages and potential future earnings, the cost of medical expenses as well as damages for pain and suffering and how their life and that of their family has been affected by the disease.

Most asbestos personal injury cases are handled by an attorney on what is called a contingency fee basis. Your attorney will not charge you a fee at the outside, but will receive a percentage of the jury verdict or the settlement. Usually lawyers will charge between 25 and 40 percent plus recompense for expenses incurred.

If you have been diagnosed with any an asbestos related disease, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. To find out how we can help you recover for your asbestos related claim, contact the Law Office of Brayton Purcell, LLP  at  (800) 598-0314 immediately, or contact us online for a free consultation.
