When You Have Lost A Loved One Due To Mesothelioma Or Asbestos-Related Illness
Exposure to asbestos can impact the health of victims many decades after they were first exposed, and the illness they experience can be fatal. The death of a loved one is a trying time, but the law gives you the opportunity to fight for justice and for the compensation you need after the loss you have experienced.
At McDermott & Hickey, LLC, we have a history of creating positive results for victims of asbestos exposure and their families. Our attorneys can help you secure compensation from all possible sources, including the asbestos trust funds, the civil justice system and Ohio workers’ compensation widows’ benefits. While we know that this compensation cannot return your loved one to you or undo the suffering your family has experienced, it can help ease the financial burden you experience.
Recognizing The Impact Of Your Loss
Losing a loved one to asbestos-related illness can have a great impact on your life. Not only are you struggling with the loss of a relationship that was important to you, but you also bear the financial burden of funeral expenses and medical expenses. The damages awarded in your lawsuit are intended to ease that burden. If your lawsuit is successful, you could be eligible for compensation for:
- Medical expenses resulting from asbestos-related illnesses like mesothelioma
- Funeral costs
- Loss of companionship
- Loss of income
- The pain and suffering you have experienced
In order to receive compensation for what your loved one suffered, you need an attorney who can show that your loved one was exposed to asbestos as a result of the negligence of another person. Our firm has more than 30 years of experience defending the rights of those harmed by asbestos, and we have the skill and experience necessary to fight for justice both in and out of the courtroom.
