“My husband said to me, “The one thing that I want is my family to survive even if I don’t… I want to know, before I close my eyes, that my family is taken care of,” and when I say he did that, he did that. I did get financial [compensation] out of [his mesothelioma lawsuit] which has brought me and my family today to where we are. I don’t take it for granted. Would I give it back today in place of my husband? Of course! Could I live in a car? Yeah. Could I live on the street? Yeah, for my husband. But knowing that that will never happen – my husband coming back… – the only thing I can do now is look forward and never give up.”
– Latanyta Manuel, widowed by mesothelioma cancer.
Mesothelioma can cost an individual hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in medical expenses alone. The average insurance company will not cover all of the costs. Plus, there are extensive costs outside of medical bills that need coverage. Compensation through a mesothelioma lawsuit can help your family shoulder all of these costs and more.
You know how mesothelioma affects the body, how it can completely incapacitate you, how it can make any kind of work impossible. You know how much time is spent just on managing the cancer, without having to think about paying the bills or the means for which your family will be provided. Mesothelioma lawyers at Weitz & Luxenberg, P.C. (“W&L”) can help you pursue litigation that can take away all of your financial worries.
For over thirty years, our asbestos attorneys have been securing financial compensation via favorable verdicts or settlements for countless people afflicted with mesothelioma. We may be able to help you too. For a free legal consultation, contact W&L using a contact form located on this page, or dial 1-800-476-6070 from anywhere in the U.S.
The following are just a few expenses that a typical mesothelioma patient must endure. Each one varies in cost, but some can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars:
If your insurance company feels that any one of these is not a necessity, they may not cover it.
By taking action against the negligent companies that made you ill, you can recover funds to pay for these expenses independently of your insurance company’s policy.
Participating in clinical trials for mesothelioma is often free. The travel, lodging, and food costs are not. This is another area where financial compensation can help. Taking part in clinical trials is important to your mesothelioma prognosis because these trials test the latest methods for treatment. Still, if you live in Pennsylvania and the clinical trial is in California, you will need the money to fly over there and stay someplace for as long as the trial takes.
You are not the only one affected by the cancer. Being out of work means that your family has one less provider. Mesothelioma compensation can ensure that your daughter or son will be able to go to college. It can contribute to your spouse’s mortgage payments. It can even help you maintain the best possible quality of life given the circumstances.
Weitz & Luxenberg is a nationally-recognized personal injury law firm that has been handling asbestos cases for over thirty years. Our mesothelioma attorneys can help you get the hard evidence to prove your case, and receive the financial compensation you deserve.
Any person afflicted with mesothelioma deserves compensation. It is not just a matter of covering your medical bills. It is the simple fact that these asbestos companies knew that they were exposing you to a toxic substance that could make you sick, and it has.
W.R. Grace was one of the major asbestos manufacturers, infamous for, among other things, the following statement, made in connection to the evidence that asbestos causes fatal diseases: “Our present policy is to tell no one anything, no visitors, or discussion of our operations, period.” This was taken from an internal memo, and was never supposed to be seen by the public.
Mesothelioma lawyers at Weitz & Luxenberg can back your case up with documents proving that you worked in a place that exposed you to asbestos. We have the resources and the experience to help you figure out where you were exposed. These asbestos companies have no choice but to acknowledge the truth – they made you sick, and they must provide you and your family with compensation for it.
