Process to Receive Mesothelioma Compensation
Though each mesothelioma case is different, the process to receive compensation is generally the same. These steps include:
Compensation is available through asbestos trust funds and lawsuits. If you’re a veteran, you’re also eligible for payment through the VA.
The most important part to get the compensation you deserve is evidence. Gather proof of exposure that will leave no doubt your company acted negligently.
Lawyers will help you file the appropriate claims in multiple jurisdictions and against various companies. By using legal guidance, the likelihood and amount of your compensation increases.
Expected Compensation Time Frame
Since each mesothelioma claim is unique, there is no set time to ensure a patient receives financial compensation. Mesothelioma claims usually have the shortest waiting times because the disease is caused by asbestos exposure. Patients typically receive money in three to six months. This time may be impacted if a patient has lung cancer and mesothelioma because the diagnosis must be supported by solid evidence. Other factors may include the complexity of a patient’s case, the number of companies and trust funds involved in the case, and the size of the asbestos trust fund.
