Widower receives mesothelioma compensation for lost years

Clear Answers' asbestos compensation lawyers were able to secure substantial mesothelioma compensation for this client who was diagnosed several decades after his negligent exposure to asbestos. As a widower, much of the compensation was for his shortened life expectancy, but some would also cover the financial burden of paying for 24-hour care during the last few months of his life. Tragically, it also included his funeral expenses.

Negligent exposure to asbestos dust

Thousands of workers are diagnosed each year suffering from mesothelioma, which is always fatal. It was decades before his symptoms of feeling breathless when exerting himself, and severe chest pains began to show.

However, this client had never worked directly with asbestos. His exposure had occurred from deteriorating asbestos insulation on pipes within his workplace.
