Is workers’ compensation enough for mesothelioma victims?

Mesothelioma and other pleural cancers derive from occupational-related asbestos exposure. Workers’ compensation is often one of the first places mesothelioma victims turn to obtain compensation. But obtaining these benefits is often difficult.

The first challenge is proving occupational related exposure. The second challenge is obtaining sufficient compensation for the medical related expense, pain and suffering and loss of consortium that clients face from this disease. The matter can be further complicated by caps to workers’ compensation benefits. The question remains for many, are workers’ compensation benefits enough and what options are available if workers’ compensation benefits are denied.

Consider pairing with an asbestos exposure attorney

Proving exposure is a major hurdle for many workers’ compensation attorneys. Attorneys having difficulty obtaining evidence to prove exposure or concerned about being able to obtain it in a timely manners should consider combining their efforts with an asbestos-exposure attorney who has experience handling occupational related injury claims arising from asbestos exposure.

Asbestos exposure attorneys offer an advantage to both workers’ compensation attorneys and their clients because they often already possess evidence related to occupational claims. This can help an attorney close the gap to securing worker’s compensation benefits.

For mesothelioma victims the obvious advantage is an opportunity to obtain additional benefits to supplement their workers’ compensation benefits. Asbestos exposure attorneys who handle mesothelioma claims are skilled at guiding clients through the claims process and maximizing their recovery.

Unfortunately mesothelioma victims do not always know about these avenues of recovery. A workers’ compensation attorney can be an invaluable resource to helping these individuals obtain the full recovery they deserve.
