A mesothelioma claim, sometimes referred to as an asbestos claim, is an avenue for recovering compensation for asbestos-related injuries, including mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.
Successful mesothelioma claims that result in compensation accomplish the following:
- Provides patients with access to high-quality medical care
- Provides financial security to mesothelioma patients and their families
- Holds asbestos companies accountable
- Motivates companies to produce safe products and avoid exposing workers to dangerous products
The type of claim you file will determine your total compensation, and it is difficult to provide an accurate estimate of the value of a mesothelioma claim. However, it’s not unheard of for a plaintiff to recover $1 million or more.
In addition to personal injury and wrongful death claims, plaintiffs can file other types of mesothelioma claims for compensation.

“People who are exposed to asbestos are exposed in different ways. Every case is different. We approach every case based on the circumstances of that person’s exposure. Depending on the circumstances, there could be claims against companies that are solvent, and we pursue them in the tort system. And sometimes, there are exposures involving bankrupt defendants, and there are bankruptcy trusts out there that are intended to compensate people who are exposed to their products.” – Darron Berquist
