Florida Mesothelioma Lawsuits
Through a Florida mesothelioma lawsuit, those diagnosed can access financial compensation.
Did You Know?
A mesothelioma lawsuit usually pays out $1 Million to $2.4 Million.
This money can pay for:
- Burial and funeral costs
- Lost wages
- Mesothelioma specialists
- Pain and suffering
While these funds can never replace a life lost to mesothelioma, they can help a victim’s family feel economically secure as they move forward.
To file these lawsuits, asbestos victims should work with a Florida mesothelioma lawyer. These lawyers charge no upfront fees and make the legal process easier for families.
Florida Mesothelioma Verdicts and Settlements
Around the U.S., over 95% of mesothelioma cases settle before ever going to court. The same is true in Florida. Often, this is due to the overwhelming evidence a Florida mesothelioma lawyer presents to the offending company or companies.
To avoid a drawn-out public legal battle in court before a judge and jury, companies responsible for a victim’s asbestos exposure typically reach a financial agreement with the victim that “settles” the case. This agreement is called a settlement.
Mesothelioma settlements have an average value of $1 Million.
In rare cases, a mesothelioma lawsuit may reach a courtroom for a trial. If this happens, a jury will hear a victim’s claim and the offending company’s defense. At its conclusion, the jury will rule in favor of the victim or the company in a decision called a verdict.
Mesothelioma verdicts pay out $2.4 Million on average.
Details specific to each mesothelioma lawsuit will determine the verdict or settlement amount a victim and/or their family is awarded.
