Your Steps to Receive Compensation for Your Mesothelioma and/or Asbestos Lung Cancer
The more concrete evidence you have showing your exposure to asbestos can help build a stronger case. While no one can remember every detail of their lives, your attempt to recall the duration of your exposure in a job or work environment can help bolster your claim. In addition, attempting to locate old pay stubs or even look through federal employment records can help you rebuild your employment timeline.
You may not remember how you were exposed to asbestos if your exposure was not at your place of employment. There are product identification books that highlight asbestos-containing products and their packing methods to help you determine if you ever were exposed to these practices.
Your friends, family, and coworkers can also provide testimony regarding your work or living conditions or your possible exposure to products that contained asbestos. Contact our attorneys at Pintas & Mullins Law Firm at (800) 794-0444 to help you build your case.

Document All Expenses
While it is important to track all of your medical expenses such as medical tests, prescriptions, surgery, etc., it is also important to track all additional expenses related to your condition.
Perhaps you needed to purchase a new bed to ease your pain and suffering after medical treatments. You may have had to hire a housecleaner or subscribe to a meal delivery service. Home health aides are often required to help with the patient and daily chores around the home.
You will likely have lost wages at work or may have lost your job completely. If so, you may have to find other health insurance, which can be even more expensive. Alternative therapies, vitamins, massages, and other expenses can all add up as you are going through this difficult time. Make sure to document all of these expenses to seek compensation in a lawsuit.
Mesothelioma is considered an occupational disease since many of its cases stem from exposure to asbestos in the workplace. This means that it was your company’s negligence that led to your condition, and you deserve compensation.
