How much money should I expect from an Asbestos Settlement?


How much money should I expect from an Asbestos Settlement?
  • Some mesothelioma settlements and verdicts have reached into the millions, but it's not easy to estimate how much a person will receive prior to filing a claim. Compensation varies on claimant’s diagnosis, medical history, companies sued, where the claim is filed, proof of negligence and other factors.
  • History has shown that an overwhelming majority of cases end in a settlement before reaching the courtroom. But some cases do go to trial, where a judge or jury can make a verdict that awards significant compensatory and punitive damages.


  • Settlement and verdict amounts often are tied to the cost of medical expenses, physical and mental distress, lost wages and bills that accumulate as patients move forward with an asbestos-related illness. Of course, compensation also is linked to the strength of the case, which brings into play the plaintiff’s specific diagnosis and health condition, as well as the degree of perceived liability on the part of one or more defendants.

  • There has been people here in UK that raised a lawsuit because of the asbestos but over 10 years later they are still fighting for payout and some of the people have already died souness this claim was raised several years ago you will have a long time to wait but if it pays out you will be talking of around £10,000 which is around $15,000


  • Don;t expect very much. This is a class action suit. the settlement goes to the lawyers, they take their commission, and distribute the rest to the participants.i was a participant in a class action suit against a tire manufacturer, i received $ 4.75. that's right! Less than five dollars. So who will get the most money? The lawyers! Who else???
