I'm a scientist, The work that I do in lab is poisonous ( exposes me to cancer). I have now caught cancer, and undergone a failed liver transplant, currently waiting for my second.
I would like some legal advice on the amount of settlement I could be looking at, many thanks!
As you are probably aware, an epidemiologist can determine causal factors for cancer in a large population, but proving causation of an individual case of cancer can be quite difficult. Doing so will likely require extensive expert testimony. If causation can be established, however, your damages are very substantial. Your best bet is to consult with an experienced worker compensation attorney who can review your claims in their entirety and provide you with better-informed opinions.
