Mesothelioma Lawsuit – Representation Fees
Mesothelioma Lawsuits are very expensive to bring to trial. If a Mesothelioma lawyer asks you for money to help with expenses for your case you should run the other way. All Mesothelioma and asbestos-related cases are “contingency-based cases”. This means no out of pocket expenses to you or your family. Mesothelioma lawyers earn their money by winning your case against asbestos companies. They do not get paid unless you get paid.
When a settlement is reached, your lawyer is paid a contingency fee or percentage of the settlement, which is compensation for their time, travel, and other expenses incurred during your Mesothelioma case. Usually it ranges from 33-40% of the total compensation amount after deducting the expenses. Be sure to discuss the matter of fees and payments that the contingency fees covered with your lawyer. This will save you any problems or questions that might occur later.

Mesothelioma Lawsuit Settlements
The value of your Mesothelioma lawsuit will depend on how many asbestos-containing products you were exposed to, the number of defendants (asbestos companies) available, your age, earning capacity and overall health. Mesothelioma cancers are clearly linked to asbestos exposure.
There is a long history of asbestos companies lying, deceiving, cheating and conspiring to conceal the dangers of asbestos exposure from their workers. It is a documented fact that many asbestos companies knowingly kept their workers in the dark and misled them about safety measures that could have prevented them from getting Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. A Mesothelioma diagnosis brings financial stress, loss of income, medical expenses, and treatments that may not covered by health insurance. Filing a Mesothelioma lawsuit can help with these added expenses.
