This year, thousands of Americans will be diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare and aggressive cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. As union workers, you and your family have a higher risk of exposure.
The sad truth is companies knew about the dangers of asbestos exposure, but remained silent. Now, after a latency period of 10 to 50 years, union workers are developing mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. Similarly, their family members are falling ill due to asbestos exposures that occurred when workers brought the dust home on their clothes and skin.
American workers have been led to believe that asbestos is no longer a threat and that, if you become sick, you have no medical or legal options. That’s simply not true. Help is available. The lawyers at Simmons Hanly Conroy represent hundreds of union members and their families throughout the United States.

While no amount of compensation can buy you a medical miracle, a lawsuit can help you afford the mesothelioma treatments you need and help eliminate the worry that medical costs are draining your family budget.
Asbestos is a unique medical and legal matter. Have an open conversation with your doctor about your history of asbestos exposure and the possible risks, especially if you develop the following symptoms: persistent cough, weight-loss and shortness of breath. These could be signs of mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease.
If you are sick, put the resources and the results of Simmons Hanly Conroy on your side. Our attorneys have seen the effects of asbestos diseases firsthand and will give you and your family the respect and personal attention you deserve.
Asbestos was used in thousands of products at job sites throughout the United States. Bricklayers, cement masons, steelworkers, carpenters and other union trades were unnecessarily put at risk. When older buildings burn or are destroyed in disasters, first responders, such as fire fighters, may also be exposed to asbestos.
