Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to get a mesothelioma settlement?

This depends on the specifics of your case. If you are awarded a mesothelioma settlement, you will likely receive partial payments over time. Many of our clients have started to receive settlement payments within 90 days.

Are mesothelioma settlements taxable?

Generally speaking, some but not all of your settlement will likely be taxed. Money you receive to cover your injuries and medical expenses may not be taxed, but money awarded as punitive damages (intended to punish the party at fault) or lost wages may be.

To avoid taxation, settlements must satisfy two requirements: physical injury and wrongful action. Taxes on settlements are complicated and depend on the specific damages involved in the suit.

As a mesothelioma law firm, Sokolove Law can help determine how much of your compensation may be taxed.

What are the average wrongful death settlements for mesothelioma?

The average mesothelioma settlement amount is $1 Million to $1.4 Million. This includes both personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits.

If your loved one passed away from mesothelioma, you may have the right to pursue compensation. Losing a loved one to cancer is never easy — that’s why we fight on behalf of surviving family members.
