At Menges Law Firm, we work on contingency. Contingency means we do not charge you anything unless you have won the settlement. If we do not win, you do not pay. It's as simple as that. We offer contingency for other areas of practice, such as:
Not only can mesothelioma be deadly, but it is also completely preventable — which is why the corporation that caused your condition must be held accountable for putting workers like you in harm’s way. Many employers and corporations continued exposing workers despite being aware of the risks.
Our team at Menges Law Firm offers complete support to our clients throughout your lawsuit, so you can concentrate on healing and spending time with your family. We will listen to your concerns, thoroughly investigate your case and help you obtain total and fair compensation for your condition. We will pursue all avenues of compensation, of which there are four main types in mesothelioma cases:
You must file a claim against a company to receive compensation for asbestos-related diseases for wrongful death or a personal injury case. Most cases are settled without a trial to avoid additional costs.
Because many asbestos-related companies are defunct due to asbestos-related claims, victims can receive compensation from the required “asbestos trusts” for claims brought against them.
A jury could decide your mesothelioma claim settlement amount if a company is liable for the asbestos exposure that caused mesothelioma.
There are unique benefits for veterans exposed to asbestos during their service time, leading to mesothelioma.
The mesothelioma lawsuit settlement amount varies depending on a victim’s details, exposure, type of diagnosis, cost of medical expense, and any other factors that may have led to the exposure. The victim will request a specific amount of money through their lawyer based on the specifics of their case. Most times, the companies pay a satisfactory settlement to cover all the expenses and the future of the victim and their family members.
On average, the settlement amount is $1 million, the total amount companies in the lawsuit must pay. In some cases, the amount may be less or more than the average amount; the specificity of the case matters.
It’s important to understand that time is of the essence when filing an asbestos exposure claim. Every state has specific deadlines and statutes of limitations that can prevent compensation if you miss the time limits for filing a lawsuit. It’s essential to take action now — not later — if you’ve been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease.
