Types of Mesothelioma Claims

Fortunately, those diagnosed with mesothelioma have several options to seek financial relief for their medical bills, lost wages, and other losses. The most common types of mesothelioma claims include:

  • Bankruptcy trust funds: Many individuals who develop mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos by a now bankrupt company. When this occurs, your claim for compensation can go through the company’s trust fund instead of the court system. 
  • Personal injury claims: When bankruptcy trusts are not an option, you have the right to sue the liable company for damages through the court system. Your mesothelioma attorney can investigate your case and build a strong claim on your behalf. 
  • Wrongful death lawsuits: If you lost a loved one to mesothelioma, you may have grounds to file a wrongful death claim to recover damages for the emotional pain and financial burdens caused by your family member’s passing. 

When you retain the services of our team, we will evaluate every detail of your claim and advise you on the best path forward to recover compensation for the full scope of your losses. 

How Does Mesothelioma Affect Victims?

Mesothelioma is an aggressive form of cancer that is widely understood to be caused by exposure to asbestos, a mineral that was widely used throughout New Jersey and the United States until the late 1970s and beyond. Mesothelioma has no cure, and victims are often not diagnosed until decades after they were exposed to asbestos.

Asbestos was once called the “magic mineral” due to its low cost to mine, its heat resistance, and its ability to be incorporated into many products. These products included insulation, pipe coverings, ceiling tiles, and floor tiles, among others. Asbestos is still found today in buildings, homes, ships, automobiles, and more.

Mesothelioma is caused by asbestos fibers embedding themselves in a person’s body and disrupting normal cell replication processes. This cancer is treated with surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, or a combination of the three.

Occupational Asbestos Exposure

Many individuals diagnosed with mesothelioma are exposed to asbestos at work. Working with asbestos and asbestos products can have significant long-term impacts on your health, and studies have shown that prolonged exposure can impact the severity of your mesothelioma diagnosis. 

Despite increased regulations and the dangers of asbestos being widely recognized, it is still found in some modern workplaces. While many different careers have a risk for asbestos exposure, the following are among the most high-risk occupations:

Due to its fibrous nature, asbestos can easily attach itself to work clothes and uniforms. This means that even if you did not personally work in one of the above careers, you may have been exposed to asbestos by someone in your family. At The Williams Law Firm, P.C., we will thoroughly investigate every aspect of your case to determine the cause of your asbestos exposure and who is responsible for your economic and non-economic damages.
