How Much Is My Case Worth?

At Richardson, Patrick, Westbrook & Brickman, our lawyers are well-versed in the landscape of asbestos litigation. We have been fighting against the asbestos industry since the early 1970s and have won thousands of cases involving asbestos and mesothelioma. We actively seek these cases because we believe that unscrupulous employers, builders, and manufacturers should not choose profits over the safety and health of others.

We know that monetary compensation will never make up for the damage asbestos exposure has had on your health, your life and your family. But, money can help pay for needed medical treatment and help you support your family in the future.

Calculating Compensation

Determining the exact amount of compensation you can receive is complex, and involves an in-depth analysis of your case, including the severity of your disease, the cost of your treatment and the impact your disease has had on your life.

However, in a typical lawsuit, courts will award compensation for the following:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages and benefits
  • Legal and funeral expenses
  • Pain and suffering

In some asbestos lawsuits, courts may award punitive damages that are intended to punish the defendant. Many such lawsuits serve to help publicize the adverse effects of asbestos exposure and to dissuade companies from putting profits above lives in the future.

When you come to RPWB, you are more than a case or a dollar figure. You are a person whose life has been altered through no fault of your own. When preparing your asbestos claim, we tell your story. What did you do for a living? What kind of person are you? How will your disease affect your life and your loved ones? By telling your story, and backing it up with expert testimony and well-drafted legal arguments, your case becomes more compelling and the compensation you receive becomes more appropriate for your circumstances.
