Mesothelioma is an aggressive and expensive cancer. Treatment can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in medical expenses alone, and most medical insurance plans do not cover all of the costs.
The following are just a few expenses that a typical mesothelioma patient must endure. Each treatment option varies in cost:
- Radiation therapy
- Medical devices, such as oxygen tanks
- At-home medical aids
Unfortunately, if your insurance company feels that any one of these items is not a necessity, it may not cover its cost.
Victims of asbestos disease and their families may be eligible for compensation for a variety of damages in addition to the direct costs of treatment. For instance, someone may be eligible to receive asbestos compensation for pain and suffering if he or she has sustained an asbestos-related injury.
Family members may be compensated for the loss of a spouse or parent who dies of an asbestos-related disease, such as mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis.
