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.
