Do you qualify for asbestos compensation?

If you were injured by occupational asbestos exposure and struggle with one of the diseases below, you are immediately eligible for compensation. Since these are very serious diseases that are directly linked to asbestos exposure, all you have to do is give our law firm a call and send our legal experts the necessary documents for filing a claim.

Lung Cancer Mesothelioma Throat Cancer Esophageal Cancer Bronchial Cancer Gastrointestinal Cancer Colorectal Cancer

On the other hand, if you suffer from one of the following diseases and suspect it was the result of asbestos exposure, you will be required to undergo free, additional medical tests with our medical team in Birmingham, Alabama in person. Because the connection between these health problems and asbestos exposure is not completely clear, we will need to find out whether asbestos exposure is the real cause of your diagnosis.

Asbestos exposure diseases
statute of limitations in Delaware

If you or anyone in your family has developed lung cancer or other pulmonary diseases, you can file an asbestos claim against your employer, but within the time-frame specified by your state, called the statute of limitations. In Delaware, the statute of limitations for asbestos claims is two years from the time you have been diagnosed.

When a person loses his/her life due to lung cancer, the family members can file a wrongful death asbestos claim within two years from the date of death. If you fail to file your asbestos claim within the specified period, you may lose your right to compensation. Being aware of the laws and taking quick action is crucial.

Filing an asbestos claim in Delaware

Current and former residents of Delaware diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease, and their family members should contact us as soon as possible. The statutes of limitations are only two years from the date of the diagnosis (for personal injury claims) and the time of death (for wrongful death claims). In 90% of the cases, we file asbestos trust fund claims rather than going through a lawsuit. Our experienced attorneys will help you with the steps involved in the asbestos claim process.

At Environmental Litigation Group, P.C., we strive to get you the best asbestos claim results possible. To pay out asbestos claims, asbestos trust funds managers rely on something called case valuation matrix. The case valuation matrix is a document approximating historical settlement values and assigning different values for compensable cancer types. The base dollar amounts vary by state or region because location sets occupational asbestos exposure levels. The table below provides the average settlement values, by disease level, at asbestos trust funds with seven disease levels, as presented in Rand Corporation's report on Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts.

Average amounts paid by asbestos trust funds

Mesothelioma
$960,000
Lung Cancer
$258,000
Other Cancer
$122,000
Non Malignant Diseases
$78,000

Disclaimer: Compensation for your asbestos case will be calculated starting from the base calculation matrix, increasing or decreasing the level of compensation according to the specifics of your case. Factors that can affect the value of your case include, but are not limited to, your location, age, work history, pain and suffering, the asbestos products involved in occupational exposure, and expenses related to your illness. Individual cases vary based on such factors, and previous results don't ensure an equal outcome. The factors specific to your case make it difficult to predict its value before you file an asbestos claim. So, determining how much your case is worth can be a complicated process. If you have any questions about settlements and your legal rights, please contact us immediately for a free consultation.
