How much money can you get from a mesothelioma case?

Postby davie » Sun Aug 21, 2011 1:16 pm

My biological dad contacted me for the first time not too long ago by phone. after talking with him for a while, he said he was going to recieve 84 million dollars from a mesothelioma case. Is this possible? what's the usual amount recieved from mesothelioma cases?

Most the settlements are out of court and the amount of money is not disclosed. Most people are lucky to get enough money to cover their medical expenses and lost wages. It is unlikely that an individual would win a settlement of $84 million, but anything is possible with a jury. Most of the time when people win exorbitant settlements they usually have to spend the rest of their life trying to actually collect the money.
