When Lance Ruble was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2008 after years of working in the construction industry, his daughter, Erica, had never even heard of the disease that was quickly killing her father. But Erica wasn't the only one in this position. Thousands of new cases are diagnosed each year, and that number is on the rise. With more and more families having to deal with a mesothelioma diagnosis, there is a strong push to find compensation for their suffering and help pay for their treatment.
Mesothelioma patients can seek compensation for their asbestos exposure in a number of ways. One is to locate the employer that used the substance. These construction and building companies are usually large corporations, and many have set up trust funds that former employees can access for their recovery. All the patient has to do is prove that he or she worked there, and have a doctor prove that the asbestos exposure led to the condition.
In the case of smaller companies or the military - which does not recognize all types of mesothelioma as being caused by asbestos - a legal option may be the best choice. Mesothelioma attorneys in the United States offer specialized services that can help patients receive a fair settlement without the need for a court case. They can also represent the patient's interests if the company refuses to cooperate and demands a trial. Settlements ranging from $100,000 to $20 million have been recovered.
