Mesothelioma Settlements: Asbestos Settlement Amounts

Mesothelioma Victims

Who have made the decision to go forward and file a mesothelioma claim lawsuit imagine the day that they will appear in court, undergoing cross-examination and having the opportunity to speak out about the injustice and harm that has been done to them.  The truth is, that most mesothelioma lawsuits do not end up going to trials.

Generally, most cases are resolved out of court, through settlements. Settlements are often the easiest way for mesothelioma patients who need to preserve their strength can focus more on their health and spending quality time with their families and loved ones. Mesothelioma victims tend to be better off as they are generally able to avoid unpleasant publicity and can save money on the cost of defending themselves in court.

Experienced Mesothelioma Attorney is Key for Receiving a Strong Settlement

Mesothelioma cases generally end up being resolved before they get to court, the mesothelioma lawyers at USAEP.ORG prepare for every case as if it will be litigated in front of a judge or jury.

That means that your asbestos – mesothelioma attorney will discuss with you the advantages and disadvantages of having your case heard in front of a judge or letting a jury decide the outcome.

It also means that we will ask for a court date and try to get that date expedited due to your medical condition. In many cases, if you have a sudden turn in your health, the judge will allow for things to be expedited.

Many clients worry about what will happen if they die before there is a verdict; in that case, our mesothelioma lawyers & attorneys will still file a mesothelioma claim  on behalf of your survivors, with an adjustment being made to turn the complaint into a wrongful death claim.

Putting Together a Strong Case

Mesothelioma Trials and Settlements

The stronger the case that has been put together against an individual defendant, the more likely they are to settle; this is an important reason for making sure that your mesothelioma attorney has a great deal of experience.

Our mesothelioma law firm has been pursuing justice on behalf of mesothelioma victims for over two decades. When we prepare a mesothelioma lawsuit, we put all of our energy and effort into it with the understanding that we will be presenting it before a judge or jury.

Every detail is polished and addressed so that when we are approached about a settlement offer, we will leave no doubt in the defendant’s mind that they will lose if they go to court. This maximizes the amount that they are willing to pay to our clients.

Resolving your Mesothelioma Lawsuit

Most mesothelioma lawsuits take approximately seven months to run their course from the time that you first contact your attorney and ask him to represent you, through to the end when you receive a satisfactory settlement offer or are awarded compensation through the trial process.

Settlements usually expedite the process, which is desirable for somebody who is facing a shortened lifespan, but if you have an experienced mesothelioma attorney working on your behalf your involvement in the case can be minimal; you simply need to let your attorney know what your wishes are and he should be able to work with you to achieve them.

Should the defendants refuse to offer a reasonable settlement amount and you end up going to trial with a jury, the jury selection process takes place and then each side is able to present their evidence for consideration.

The trial usually takes a few weeks, and is made up of expert witness testimony, evidence provided by your physicians and oncologists, former co-workers and colleagues, your family, and more. The more evidence you are able to present, the stronger the case against the defendants. This generally leads to a faster resolution.

We Go the Distance For You

Regardless of whether your case is decided at a settlement table or in a court of law, our attorneys will represent you with all the knowledge and compassion that they have put into every case they have handled since they first began representing mesothelioma victims two decades ago.

When my mother got diagnosed with mesothelioma, the doctor told us she would die within the year. With the help of usaep.org, we got her to a specialist and two years later she is still with us. Thank you all for giving us another Christmas with Mom.

My brother thought he could not pay for mesothelioma treatment. When I signed up for a call from usaep, they helped me find a center that would pay for his care. He is in treatment now with very little cost to his family. He has a chance to fight now, thank you and our prayers are with you for helping Tom.
