Winning Maximum Compensation for Mesothelioma Victims and Their Families

Workers and veterans face a significant risk of respiratory diseases due to their exposure to asbestos. From the 1930s to the 1980s, hard-working personnel were in direct contact with asbestos products, not knowing that 20 to 60 years later, they could suffer incurable mesothelioma, asbestosis, and other deadly diseases. Many asbestos companies had withheld the information that this fibrous mineral could be toxic to humans.

Today, various legal remedies are available to compensate asbestos victims. They may consider claiming from mesothelioma trust funds, or they may maximize their compensation by filing a lawsuit. For former service members of the US military, the Department of Veteran Affairs also provides benefits related to asbestos diseases.

If you developed mesothelioma or another asbestos-related illness, we want you to get the full compensation possible. If your family member died due to an asbestos disease, monetary repayment may not be able to replace the life lost, but it can help you get back on your feet and get a sense of justice.

At Kassel McVey, we work tirelessly to obtain the maximum compensation our clients deserve. We examine all legal options available and create a robust strategy for each client. With compelling evidence and the support of experts, we put together a strong case. And we present it with tenacity, even when facing big companies that try to deny their liability.

Mesothelioma Lawsuit FAQs

How do I know if I have mesothelioma?

Symptoms of mesothelioma or asbestosis commonly take 20 to 60 years to appear. Look out for health issues such as painful coughing, chest pain, shortness of breath, unexplained weight loss, and unusual lumps under the skin on the chest. When you notice these symptoms, see a doctor right away to get a proper diagnosis. Keep your medical records and other documentation from this point on, to help your potential claim later.

How do I claim asbestos/mesothelioma compensation?

You may be able to claim from a trust fund, sue for personal injury, or claim available benefits. The first step you’ll want to take is to consult an experienced asbestos attorney to determine which legal pathway is best for your situation. Your attorney can then help you with the filing process.

Kassel McVey provides comprehensive legal service: from your initial consultation to filing all the paperwork to completing your case. We ensure that each case we handle is effective and efficient, while providing personal care to the client throughout the process.

How much could I receive for mesothelioma or asbestos disease?

Case outcomes depend on many factors. Some estimates say the average mesothelioma settlement is $1-2 million, but in reality, there’s a wide range of settlement and verdict amounts. Working with an attorney is a sensible way to maximize your claim. The attorneys at Kassel McVey have obtained as much as $38 million for a single case of asbestos exposure.

My loved one died of mesothelioma. Do I have a claim?

You may have a potential wrongful death claim if a close family member died of asbestos exposure through no fault of their own. A successful wrongful death claim may reimburse your funeral and burial expenses, as well as related medical costs from your loved one’s illness. It may also provide monetary compensation for non-economic losses such as lost companionship. Talk to us at Kassel McVey for an assessment of your possible wrongful death case.

How much does an asbestos lawyer cost?

At Kassel McVey, our legal services for asbestos cases cost nothing upfront. You won’t have to pay us any lawyer fees unless and until we obtain compensation for you. This means you don’t risk any money with us, and you can be assured we’ll work hard to win your case.
