Why Mesothelioma Victims Deserve Compensation
Sokolove Law is committed to helping victims
of mesothelioma, a deadly cancer caused by
asbestos exposure. Those diagnosed with
mesothelioma may be eligible to pursue
financial compensation. Sokolove Law can help.
Manufacturers of asbestos-
containing products chose to use
asbestos because it was cheap and
profitable. In doing so, they put
profits over people and put innocent
families at risk.
As a national law firm, Sokolove Law has spent over 40 years helping families receive mesothelioma financial compensation. We're ready to help you, too.
Who Is Eligible for Mesothelioma Compensation?
Eligibility requirements for mesothelioma
compensation will vary depending on the type of claim you file.
The most common requirements for
mesothelioma compensation are a:
- Confirmed medical diagnosis of mesothelioma or another asbestos related disease
- History of asbestos exposure, either at a certain worksite or using specific asbestos containing products
You may not know how you were exposed to asbestos - but we can work with you to figure that out.
Your asbestos exposure may have occurred through military service or a specific trade or occupation. Some workers unknowingly brought asbestos into their homes on their clothes and hair. They then passed asbestos fibers on to others in their household.

Mesothelioma Compensation for Family Members
Mesothelioma patients aren't the only ones who may be eligible to receive compensation for their illness. The mesothelioma victim's spouse, family member, or estate representative may be able to pursue compensation on their loved one's behalf through a wrongful death claim.
Mesothelioma Compensation Amounts
Mesothelioma compensation payouts are influenced by a number of different factors in every case, including:
- The type of claim you file to pursue compensation
- The severity of your asbestos-related illness and its effect on your health
- Medical expenses for treatment
- Any lost wages from an inability to work
- The number of asbestos-containing products you were exposed to as well as the number of companies that manufactured those products
