It is difficult enough to face the loss of a loved one. Tragically, these illnesses and deaths were preventable. We at Flint Law Firm are genuinely sorry for your loss of a parent, a spouse, a sibling, or a child. The only thing that the legal system can offer is financial compensation from the Asbestos companies found legally responsible.
Truthfully, there is nothing that the law can do to make things right. There is nothing any judge can do to make your family whole again. This page explains how to help the family of victims of Mesothelioma or Asbestos Lung Cancer can be awarded the best result from what our legal system allows.
Let Flint Law Firm's experience help your family. We are a national law firm and have recovered over 2 Billion Dollars for our clients—and counting.
Mesothelioma compensation for family members is the total of money awarded from several different types of claims, benefits, and legal actions you can take based on your asbestos cancer diagnosis.
How soon can someone that is filing a Mesothelioma case expect compensation?
Every year close to 3 thousand Americans are diagnosed with Mesothelioma, and over 200 thousand Americans are diagnosed with lung cancer. Many of the lung cancers relate to Asbestos, and all of the Mesothelioma diagnoses are asbestos-related.
Even though manufacturers have had other insulation options since World War II, they continued to use Asbestos for another 50 years.
One person's terminal illness affects the entire family. Family caregivers provide the help that nurses and doctors cannot and find that they are left with more than loss once their loved one dies. Families are burdened with their health issues.
Studies show that caring for a terminally ill family member leads to health problems. Families are burdened with crippling debt, lost wages, lost benefits, medical bills, and end-of-life expenses.
You have the legal right to recover the damages that your family has suffered through a wrongful death claim. Some of our clients are worried about doing the "right thing," or perhaps they are just uncomfortable because they have never been involved with a legal claim before.
Many of the Asbestos defendants have admitted their responsibility for causing cancer and set aside funds to help victims' families. Other companies refuse to acknowledge wrongdoing but have been forced to pay millions in judgments to families.
Your Time to Act is Now! You have three years (or less) in many states from the date a loved one has passed to take action, or your claims may be barred.
Often, the company responsible for your family's loss has either admitted fault or set aside millions of dollars to compensate families like yours.
Even if you think that your loved one had already started a claim before they died, it is still okay to call for information. Many of our clients filed an asbestosis claim decades ago.
Asbestosis is a severe breathing problem, but not cancer.
Our experienced mesothelioma attorneys will be able to tell you if it is possible to help. If you are unsure, give our lawyers a call and ask.
Compensation for death related to Mesothelioma comes from several sources. Your damages are based on evidence that the Flint Law Firm is experienced collecting and presenting to the court. Your financial losses include but are not limited to the following:
Flint Law Firm knows how to communicate the significance of your loss to a jury. In courtrooms across the United States, we have succeeded in winning awards for the wrongful death of America's fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, sons and daughters.
Also, even if you don't want to pursue a lawsuit, many defendants will pay wrongful death compensation without having a trial.
I have been practicing for over 20 years. I have personally experienced many difficult moments with Mesothelioma clients who understood their time was short. People in that situation have a universal request: "Please take care of my family."Flint Law Firm has made and kept that promise to our clients.

People who would never ask anything for themselves want to make sure that children or grandchildren get to attend college. They want spouses to keep the family home, and they wish no one has to die from Asbestos ever again.
Once we have finished a case, our clients often ask for guidance—advice on how to plan for future generations and an appropriate way to remember their loved ones. Many of our clients have chosen to donate Mesothelioma medical research to develop more effective treatments.

Am I Eligible to File a Mesothelioma Wrongful Death Lawsuit?
The family members qualified to file a Mesothelioma wrongful death lawsuit are governed by state law. Please contact us. We can help you through the process. Usually, a wrongful-death asbestos/mesothelioma lawsuit is filed by the next of kin defined by the state. It typically includes spouses, children, and parents but can be other heirs. Only an experienced attorney can help your family with your specific situation.
Do I need probate or an estate for a mesothelioma wrongful death claim?
Not necessarily. In some situations, your family will have to go through probate to file a claim. If there is an estate, then the executor or executrix would be the proper party to file. Estates are rare, and wills are often not probated, so this may not apply to your family's situation. If you are not sure who needs to file for your family or who needs to take over an existing claim, or even if a claim ever existed before death, please call, and we will be able to figure it out together.
Are Mesothelioma and Asbestos lung cancer cases related to a class-action lawsuit?
No, Mesothelioma and Asbestos lung cancer cases are not related to a class-action lawsuit. Asbestos cancer is a unique injury. Our clients have to deal with their diagnosis of Mesothelioma cancer, or asbestos lung cancer is also unique. Mesothelioma claims could never be handled within the limits of a class-action lawsuit. We only file individual cases for our clients and their families. Each case that we file is either a personal injury case or a wrongful death case. A class-action lawsuit only works to handle a large group of injured people precisely the same way--like a financial injury from a cell phone company overcharge.
