ASBESTOS EXPOSURE AND MESOTHELIOMA IN TEXAS

Our previous experience representing mesothelioma patients in Texas is important because it means we are familiar with Texas job sites where asbestos exposure occurred.

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.

The oil industry features some of the most dangerous environments for asbestos exposure, and no state is home to more oil refineries than Texas. All the major oil companies – including BP, Chevron, Exxon, Mobil and Shell – have a presence in Texas. Many of these companies’ Texas oil refineries were built with asbestos insulation because petroleum is extremely flammable. Throughout the years, this insulation has the potential to break down and be inhaled by oil refinery workers.

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

Jim’s Story

Jim, a former Simmons Hanly Conroy client, was exposed to asbestos during his time in the U.S. Navy. Years later, he was diagnosed with mesothelioma and given months to live. When Jim and his wife, Peggy, started to feel the burden of his medical bills, our Texas mesothelioma lawyers stepped in. His attorney and asbestos legal team tailored a plan to guide Jim through the mesothelioma lawsuit process and ensure that justice was sought for him and his family.

Frank’s Story

Dec. 7, 1941 is an iconic day not only because Pearl Harbor was attacked, but also because Simmons Hanly Conroy client Franke Curre survived it, then passed away that same day 70 years later from mesothelioma. Before Frank passed, he worked with our Texas mesothelioma lawyers to file a lawsuit for his asbestos exposure during his time in the U.S. Navy. Our mesothelioma lawyers are proud to work with individuals like Frank and their families to secure the justice they deserve.

“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.”
