Many mesothelioma patients are entitled to financial compensation. Veterans can receive compensation from VA claims, trust funds, settlements, and jury verdicts. Those with mesothelioma should work with a lawyer to get as much compensation as possible.
Financial Compensation for Mesothelioma Patients
Mesothelioma is a rare cancer that requires specialized treatment. From chemotherapy rounds to surgery, medical bills can start adding up.
Deductibles, co-pays and out-of-pocket expenses can build up quickly with frequent doctor appointments even with great insurance. Compensation can help you afford treatment and stay out of debt.
Compensation can help:
- Pay for treatment expenses: Compensation can cover your medical and treatment expenses your health insurance does not cover. It can also help pay for aggressive, life-extending surgery.
- Cover lost wages: Many patients can’t work or end up losing their jobs during treatment. Surgical recovery time can take months in some cases. Compensation ensures you don’t have to worry about your lost wages.
- Compensate for disability: Some patients aren’t able to return to work. There are several ways to receive disability compensation to help cover the cost of living.
- Secure your estate: Payouts from Asbestos Trust Funds and litigation can secure your family’s future. Regardless of your prognosis, compensation gives you peace of mind that your family will be financially secure.

A memo circulated through the asbestos industry in 1988, with documents that were more than 50 years old. These documents contained “evidence of corporate conspiracy to prevent asbestos workers from learning that their exposure to asbestos could kill them.”
This memo shows that many companies were aware of the risks of asbestos before World War II.
