How Much Will My Mesothelioma Case Be Worth?


A lot of clients ask "what's the potential value of my case?" That depends on a lot of factors It depends on someone's age, their family's circumstances, it depends where and how they may have been exposed to asbestos

Generally speaking, there are two different options for an individual victim One would be filing a bankruptcy claim against a number of the bankruptcy trusts This would not be a lawsuit and it is limited in terms of the amount of compensation that can be achieved The secondary approach that can be taken, and you can do both of these together or one or the other would be a lawsuit An actual lawsuit where the case would be filed at the courthouse, you'd have a judge, you'd have a jury, and if the case didn't settle before trial, it would be a jury trial

We find that compensation from the litigation side, from filing a lawsuit, tends to be more substantial than what we get with the bankruptcies The bankruptcy trusts are somewhat limited in how much they can pay, although in each and every instance, we file claims and we fight hard to get the top value
