Orange County Mesothelioma Lawyer
Being diagnosed with cancer after experiencing asbestos exposure puts everything at risk. Find out how to get the financial compensation you are owed by working with an Orange County mesothelioma lawyer.
Asbestos exposure can be deadly. With symptoms sometimes taking decades to manifest, many victims of asbestos-related cancer are diagnosed and then find themselves uncertain of how to pursue compensation because their exposure took place so long ago.
If you are suffering from asbestos cancer, an Orange County mesothelioma lawyer from Dickson Kohan & Bablove, LLP can help you explore your legal options for compensation.
Collecting Compensation for Asbestos Cancer
No matter how long ago your asbestos exposure took place, you’re always at risk for developing mesothelioma at some point. Many victims encountered this toxic substance while on the job. Construction workers and miners were at particular risk when asbestos was still widely used as a fireproofing material. Even now, construction workers are sometimes exposed when demolishing old buildings.
You might also be exposed to asbestos if it’s present in your home. Your landlord has a duty to inform you of any hazards present on the property and to correct them, so they might be found responsible if you develop cancer due to their negligence.
Determining Your Mesothelioma Claim’s Value
When you meet with an Orange County mesothelioma lawyer from our office, we can discuss the details of your personal injury claim and how the cancer has impacted your life and finances.
Mesothelioma is a terrible disease that creates the need for long-term medical care. We will work with your doctor to determine what treatments and medications will be necessary and to estimate the future cost of these treatments to ensure that you receive adequate compensation.
You can also receive money for any of the following items that apply to your case:
- Transportation expenses
- In-home caregivers
- Cancer-related expenses
- Therapy and alternative treatments
- Pain and suffering
- Lost enjoyment of life
You might also receive punitive damages meant to punish the party responsible for your asbestos exposure. If your employer or landlord were egregiously negligent, these could become a realistic possibility.
Mesothelioma Wrongful Death Claims
If you have a loved one who died from asbestos-related cancer, you may have grounds for a wrongful death case. Typically, only close family members can file a claim, such as a spouse, domestic partner, child, or financially dependent relative.
If you are unsure if you qualify, an Orange County mesothelioma lawyer from our firm can help you make this determination.
