How much should aseptic meningitis workers compensation settlement be? My husband was diagnosed with aseptic meningitis after performing a task at work that exposed him to very toxic chemicals. At the time he was instructed to complete this "task" he was told by his boss that cotton gloves were only protective gear available. This nearly killed my husband and he still has severe headaches and several other health problems. What is he least amount we should settle for if we decide to settle of court?
