Simmons Hanly Conroy has recovered $5 billion in verdicts and settlements on behalf of thousands of clients throughout the United States. Our Iowa asbestos attorneys have recovered $79 million on behalf of mesothelioma victims in Iowa alone, helping 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.

Asbestos is a deadly mineral that has been used in thousands of products in multiple industries including manufacturing, steel working, shipbuilding and more. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested they increase a person’s risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma.

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

Dale was exposed to asbestos at a packing plant where he worked for 36 years. At the time, Dale and the other workers were not told of the health risks of asbestos exposure. Years later, while enjoying a much-deserved retirement with his wife of 48 years, Dale was diagnosed with mesothelioma.

The Simmons Hanly Conroy team worked diligently on Dale’s case to pursue the best possible outcome for him and his wife. Dale’s mesothelioma lawsuit process resulted in a settlement without trial which helped to cover Dale’s medical costs.

“The firm makes you feel like you’re somebody, and like you do matter. Sometimes you get the wrong interpretation of lawyers and attorneys – they’re good people. They’re humans too, they’re just trying to help. They become good friends, even family.”
