Riverside Mesothelioma Lawyer
If you developed cancer after being exposed to asbestos, you can hold the at-fault party responsible. Find out how to get the settlement you deserve by consulting with a Riverside mesothelioma lawyer.
If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, there is a high chance that it was caused by prior asbestos exposure through your job or your home. Prior to the 1970s, asbestos-use was widespread as insulation against fires. As a result, many people are exposed without ever realizing it, and the effects of that exposure can sometimes take decades to manifest.
A Riverside mesothelioma lawyer from Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP can help you determine who was at fault for your asbestos exposure and whether you can seek compensation from them.
Potential Asbestos Exposure and Cancer Risk
The people at greatest risk for asbestos exposure are those who work in a trade where asbestos is or was commonly used. This includes asbestos mining, construction, demolition, manufacturing, shipbuilding, and rescue work. There is no known safe level of asbestos exposure, so it is possible for you to develop mesothelioma even if you only came into contact with this toxic substance once.
Compensation for Asbestos Cancer
Unlike other personal injury claims, there are multiple ways to seek compensation for asbestos exposure and the development of mesothelioma:
- File a personal injury lawsuit
- Collect money through trusts established by bankrupt asbestos companies
- Seek disability through the VA if you were exposed to asbestos while in the line of duty
Your Riverside mesothelioma lawyer can review your case and the cause of your exposure and then let you know the best way for you to proceed.
Valuing Your Mesothelioma Claim
The value of your claim will be calculated using several factors. First, we will work with your doctor to determine what treatments and medications you require, along with their cost. Knowing how long your treatments will continue allows us to project these costs into the future.
Next, we will calculate the financial losses associated with your cancer diagnosis. For example, if you will no longer be able to work, you can receive compensation for lost wages and earning potential. You can also seek compensation for any of the following that apply to your case:
- Caregivers, medical devices, and medication
- Transportation costs
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Emotional distress
- Lost enjoyment of life
