Asbestos Lawsuits in California
If you or someone you love has been diagnosed with mesothelioma and is interested in filing a mesothelioma lawsuit, we know that traveling during this time could be difficult. We will come to you.
Over the past decade, we have represented many clients throughout California, including families who live in:
Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in California is important because it means we are familiar with California 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 difficult part is asbestos fibers are often microscopic and many workers might not know how they were exposed.
If you are unsure about how your asbestos exposure might have occurred that does not mean you can’t file a mesothelioma lawsuit. Our experienced attorneys have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures. They are ready to help you and your family as well. Our firm has an established track record of success in identifying work places in California where asbestos-containing products may have been present.
Many of our California clients served in the Navy. Asbestos was often present in products used in submarines and ships. A number of work sites throughout California are linked to asbestos exposure, including:

Every person diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease has a unique story. Here at Simmons Hanly Conroy, we believe there is power in sharing those stories. Our lawyers have helped many people over the years secure mesothelioma compensation. We are honored to have been able to make a life-changing difference in their lives and the lives of their loved ones.
When you hire Simmons Hanly Conroy to be your mesothelioma law firm, you automatically become part of our family. That is why our attorneys will fly anywhere in the country, including to California, to help someone diagnosed with this terrible disease. We have seen firsthand the devastating effects this disease can have, and we want to help.
As you learn about our clients’ stories, please understand that recover results vary. No two stories are exactly alike and the mesothelioma recovery reflects the unique parts of each person’s story. No two cases are exactly alike, and recovery amounts in past cases are not a guarantee of future results.
Verdicts and Settlements/Our Experience
As one of the leading national mesothelioma law firms, Simmons Hanly Conroy has secured several asbestos verdicts and mesothelioma settlements on behalf of our clients. Since John Simmons founded the firm, our mesothelioma attorneys have recovered over $120 million for our Pennsylvania clients through the mesothelioma legal process. Nationwide, our attorneys have recovered billions of dollars in mesothelioma cases.
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.”
Our attorneys are highly experienced in representing mesothelioma patients and their families. We have 40 attorneys in our mesothelioma practice who solely focus on helping people like you. Each attorney operates within a small legal team comprised of experienced legal staff. Team members include a senior attorney, 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.
Asbestos cases are unlike other personal injury cases, so our level of proficiency is a key factor in our ability to secure results. A recent success story involved a $3 million verdict for a New York pipefitter. Read more about the case and other results below.

Filing a Pennsylvania Mesothelioma Lawsuit
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 buy you a medical miracle, filing a mesothelioma lawsuit can help lift financial burdens so you can focus on what’s important.
Compensation from a mesothelioma can help make certain financial decisions easier. It can help pay for emerging treatments not covered under your health insurance and other cancer treatments. It will provide financial security for you and your loved ones. Hiring a mesothelioma lawyer will ensure you receive the mesothelioma compensation you deserve, but, at the same time, allow you to focus on your health and spending time with loved ones.
Filing a mesothelioma lawsuit can also hold negligent companies and organizations accountable. The dangers of asbestos have been known for over a century by both manufacturing and insurance companies. Yet, they remained silent. Did you know that asbestos is still legal in the United States? It is. Forcing asbestos companies to compensate families will help them realize they can no longer put profits over people.
Deciding to file a mesothelioma claim and hiring an attorney doesn’t have to be a difficult decision. If you have questions or concerns about the process, we have a dedicated team of legal professionals who are available to meet with you soon in your home or a location of your choosing.
