When you or a family member is diagnosed with mesothelioma, everything changes. We understand that this is an incredibly difficult time for you and your family. While no amount of compensation can ease the pain, filing a mesothelioma lawsuit to obtain fair compensation from those responsible for your injuries can help ensure your family’s financial security and allow you to focus on what’s important.


If you are considering filing a mesothelioma lawsuit, we encourage you to call us to learn more. There is no cost to file a claim – our mesothelioma lawyers will travel to Indiana to represent you on a contingency basis.

We also know that traveling during this time could be difficult. Our mesothelioma lawyers will come to you. Over the past decade, we have represented many clients throughout Indiana, including families who live in:

  • La Porte
  • Marion
  • Richmond
  • South Bend


Our mesothelioma lawyers have recovered $5 billion in verdicts and settlements on behalf of thousands of clients throughout the United States. For Indiana families impacted by mesothelioma, our asbestos attorneys have recovered over $251 million to help them pay for medical bills and hold the people who harmed them accountable.

One landmark verdict the firm won was a $250 million verdict on behalf of Roby Whittington, a steelworker who worked at U.S. Steel for 30 years. The verdict still stands today as the largest asbestos verdict against a single defendant in the history of the litigation.

“Roby worked hard and provided for his family and put in an honest day’s work,” said Shareholder Perry Browder, who oversaw the case. “U.S. Steel, on the other hand, treated him like he was a resource – no different than coal or iron. They poisoned him. People to this day are still getting sick and dying of mesothelioma from exposures they had 30, 40, 50 years ago.”

Please note that recovery results vary per client. The recovery amounts in each case reflect the specific facts of that case. Further, recovery amounts in past cases are not a guarantee of future results.

You should know that Indiana has a unique set of laws that could impact your ability to file a claim. For example, Indiana has statute of limitation laws that restrict the time frame in which mesothelioma patients and family members can file a lawsuit.

Our Indiana mesothelioma lawyers are prepared to help you understand this process and guide you through the legal system. We have 40 attorneys in our mesothelioma practice who solely focus on helping people like you. Each senior attorney operates within a small legal team comprised of several associate attorneys, paralegals, medical staff and investigators. This structure ensures you will receive personalized attention while your case works its way through this complex legal process.

If you’d like to speak to a mesothelioma lawyer in your home state of Indiana or a location of your choice, we are available to meet with you.


Indiana shares a strong connection with mesothelioma because it is home to Steve McQueen, perhaps the most famous person ever diagnosed with the disease. Before McQueen’s career in Hollywood, where he starred in such films as The Great Escape, The Magnificent Seven and The Thomas Crown Affair, he served in the United States Marine Corps from 1947 to 1050. Many believe that it was during this time that McQueen was exposed to asbestos.

McQueen was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 1979 and eventually died on November 7, 1980. McQueen’s death brought mesothelioma to the forefront of the nation’s consciousness and continues to fuel asbestos reform even today.

The mesothelioma lawyers at Simmons Hanly Conroy provide special support for all veterans diagnosed with mesothelioma. Learn more about filing a veterans mesothelioma lawsuit.

In addition to veterans, our asbestos attorneys represent mesothelioma victims from various occupations, including steelworkers, carpenters, insulators and drywallers. Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in Indiana is important because it means we are familiar with Indiana job sites where asbestos exposure occurred.

Our experienced attorneys have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures and they are ready to help you and your family as well.
