What Are Mesothelioma Settlements?

 Mesothelioma settlements are financial awards to asbestos exposure victims who develop malignant Mesothelioma as a direct result of the negligence of asbestos companies.  

Most Mesothelioma lawsuits will never go to trial. Mesothelioma settlement amounts are agreed upon by both parties to avoid a long trial. 

How Much Are Settlements Worth?

The amount of settlement compensation for a Mesothelioma claim can depend on various factors involved in the negotiation with the asbestos companies. Determining factors during negotiations in a Mesothelioma settlement can include:  

Mesothelioma Settlement Factors Include:  

Asbestos Exposure History 


Lost Wages 

Medical Expenses 

Other Dependents 

Pain and Suffering 

Type of Diagnosis

Mesothelioma Settlements Process

Four Steps in the Mesothelioma Settlement Process 

Step 1: Filing of Case – This will determine which asbestos companies are liable to file your claim against. Claimants will need to provide evidence of their workplace asbestos exposure.  

Step 2: Review of Case – Trustees will review your claim, medical history and asbestos exposure. This allows them to determine if you claim meets their criteria for financial compensation.   

Step 3: Liquidation – Trustees will determine how much financial compensation to payout. A Mesothelioma lawyer can negotiate individual claim for a larger settlement than the fixed amount set up by asbestos trust funds.

Step 4: Settlement Agreement and Compensation Payment – When an agreement is reached with an asbestos company or asbestos trust fund the settlement amount is paid to the victim.

Mesothelioma Settlements vs Verdicts

There is always risk in going to trial because Mesothelioma cases can be very complex. Placing your outcome in the hands of a jury, whose opinions can be swayed a crafty defense counsel can be risky. There is no guarantee the jury will side with you.  

In most Mesothelioma cases jury verdicts may result in a larger financial awards. While the amount awarded in a Mesothelioma settlement may be smaller than a trial verdict, you are at least guaranteed some compensation.  

To settle or put your fate in the hands of a jury verdict is best made with the counsel of an experienced Mesothelioma lawyer.
