Each asbestos mesothelioma case is different. Thus, awards typically vary from six figures to eight figures since wrongful death by mesothelioma is horrible. Our Wisconsin mesothelioma lawyers have had excellent results working on behalf of asbestos victims and their families. In the last five years, we have helped these families recover more than $21,000,000.00.
Again, every case is different, but to give you an idea of the type of case that was successful, I summarize one below.
John Doe was born and lived in Wisconsin most of his life. He grew up in the Milwaukee area and lived in the Fox Valley for many years. After retirement, his pulmonologist diagnosed him with pleural mesothelioma after a lung biopsy and PET Scan. Mr. Doe had served in the U.S. Navy after high school, a typical fact for many mesothelioma victims, and was exposed to asbestos in the power systems, HVAC systems and mechanicals of various ships and at shipyards.
After serving in the armed forces, Mr. Doe also did a lot of maintenance and machinist work involving plumbing, electrical power, utilities, insulation, boilers, water systems, pumps, and hydraulics. He worked many years for a couple of the Wisconsin companies facing asbestos litigation or alleged to have some link to asbestos or mesothelioma.
Mr. Doe’s mesothelioma eventually killed him, but before he died, he was most worried about his family and how they would do after he passed. Though he died shortly after I met him, we continued to work for his family and eventually recovered more than $3,500,000.00.
