Mesothelioma Compensation for Family Members in 2020 and Love Ones.

Mesothelioma Compensation for Family Members: Unfortunately, far too many people diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer or another asbestos exposure-related disease pass away soon after.

Families can be left facing mountains of medical and funeral bills while also dealing with the grief of losing a loved one.

N/B: If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma you may be entitled to compensation

For these family members, it may still be possible to recover the compensation that your loved one deserved for his or her exposure to asbestos decades ago. At the Pittsburgh law firm of Savinis, Kane, & Gallucci, L.L.C., we can help you explore your options for securing justice.

How Mesothelioma Would Affect the Family

The emotional stress and suffering you’ve already endured has likely caused a rippling impact on your entire life. From medical costs to the inability to effectively do your job, you have endured financial repercussions from the death of your family member. Accordingly, the responsible corporation(s) should be obligated to pay damages to you for the harm they have caused. That’s why you have the right to pursue compensation for your distress.

Beyond the lost wages from the deceased, your ability to live your life has been significantly altered. This chain of events has come about because of the willful negligence or malice of corporations that need to be held responsible.

That’s why it’s so critical for you and your family to act now and seek out what is rightfully yours. You do not have to allow this tragedy to make you a victim twice. The loss you now have to live with is painful enough. It’s time for you to take action and seek out the justice you deserve.

Family Option to Death Compensation

Families can pursue settlements or other compensation efforts through a variety of legal means. The goal here is to create proof that both the deceased victim and your family have endured pain, suffering and financial loss as a result of mesothelioma or other asbestos-related disease.

Common areas of injury include the following:

♦ Medical Expenses/Treatment

Your family member’s medical costs related to a mesothelioma diagnosis or asbestos-related illness were likely very high. For many families these bills may not be fully covered by their insurance. As a result, they are left with unpaid charges potentially impacting their credit and other financial elements of their lives.

♦ Mortgage/Utility/Other Bills

When a household is financially impacted by an illness or disease related to asbestos, the results can be devastating. This means that mortgages, credit cards or utility bills may go unpaid. You are entitled to receive a cash settlement amount which includes enough to offset these costs, late fees and related financial damages that result from the family’s loss of income.

♦ Emotional Pain

While emotional pain is not as measurable as financial damages, it is the true crux of what you are experiencing. Your emotional distress, pain and suffering is carried with you throughout your life. This type of suffering should not go uncompensated or unacknowledged by those who are responsible, and a jury can measure the value of your loss.

Generally the legal process for a wrongful death suit related to mesothelioma or asbestos exposure starts with extensive research by multiple investigators and attorneys, and by interviews with the client.

Claims are filed once it’s determined what the best options are. These claims can be made in different states, depending on where different company offices involved with the exposure are located. The state where you are likely to get the most favorable settlement is where your claim should be made. From there your case could go to court or a settlement may be reached.

Honour Your Love One Through Advancing Mesothelioma Research

Beyond making negligent companies pay for the life they took, you have additional options available to honor the person you loved. Some of our clients have generously made a contribution to mesothelioma research and treatment.

Researchers have continued to invest their focus on better understanding the mechanisms behind mesothelioma and other diseases caused by asbestos. Their work can make a huge difference in the lives of other people with a similar diagnosis in the future.

Contributing to this type of research can help:

  • Earlier detection
  • Improved range of treatment options
  • Less pain and suffering for victims
  • Improved quality of life for patients
  • Continued work toward finding a cure

Mesothelioma is typically a fatal diagnosis. Perhaps one day that terminal aspect of the disease will be reversed and we can cure it. Until then, advancing research will make better treatment options more affordable and accessible to those who are suffering.
