Los Angeles Asbestos Exposure & Mesothelioma Claims

When asbestos fibers are inhaled or swallowed, they may become lodged in the lining of major organs like the lungs. These fibers can irritate healthy tissue for decades, causing mesothelioma to develop 10-50 years after exposure.

Our mesothelioma law firm has helped:

  • Over 6,000 families affected by asbestos exposure nationwide
  • Secure more than $9.3 billion from mesothelioma claims
  • Give our clients a powerful voice in the legal system for over 20 years

Companies knew the dangers when they used asbestos in their products — but they used it anyway, putting thousands at risk. We can help you hold these corporations accountable and pursue compensation for your family.

Our asbestos attorneys in Los Angeles can handle every step of the legal process as we fight for justice on your behalf. There are no hourly fees or out-of-pocket costs to work with us.

Filing a Mesothelioma Lawsuit in Los Angeles

Filing a mesothelioma lawsuit can help you cover medical expenses and secure your family’s well-being for years to come. Our Los Angeles mesothelioma attorneys can guide you through the legal system, making the process as easy as possible for you and your family.

You may be eligible for compensation in multiple ways, and many of these options do not require you to go to court:

  • Asbestos Trust Funds: An estimated $30 billion has been set aside by asbestos companies to pay people who have developed asbestos-related diseases.
  • Mesothelioma Lawsuit: Most mesothelioma lawsuits are settled out of court, though our mesothelioma attorneys in Los Angeles are prepared to present your case in trial if needed. Families can receive significant amounts of compensation from settlements.
  • Veterans Affairs (VA) Benefits: Veterans with mesothelioma may be able to access medical and financial benefits through the VA. We have VA-accredited mesothelioma attorneys on staff who can help veterans prepare their VA claims to access the benefits they are owed.

You’ll have an entire legal team on your side, with a senior attorney, several associate attorneys, paralegals, medical staff and investigators, so you get the personalized care and attention you deserve.

Statute of Limitations

California has a unique set of laws called statutes of limitations that restrict the amount of time mesothelioma patients and their family members have to file a claim.

For this reason, it’s important to contact asbestos lawyers in California as soon as possible after your diagnosis.

If you’d like to talk to a Los Angeles mesothelioma attorney about a potential case, we can meet with you in your home, virtually or at a location of your choosing.

Penelope’s Story

After experiencing uncomfortable symptoms, Penelope, a devoted kidney doctor, found her life taking an unexpected turn. She was soon diagnosed with mesothelioma.

Asbestos exposure isn’t common for medical professionals like doctors, but our Los Angeles mesothelioma lawyers were able to determine what happened in Penelope’s case. The lab equipment she worked with years ago had contained asbestos, allowing our team to secure compensation from the manufacturers on her behalf.

“In the darkness of dealing with my terminal illness, the guiding light, support and persistence of the entire Simmons Hanly Conroy team has renewed my faith in humanity,” said Penelope.

Albert’s Story

Albert served in the U.S. Air Force before joining the pipeline and refractory industries, where he worked hard to support his family. However, both his military and civilian careers exposed him to products that contained asbestos, and after retiring, he was diagnosed with mesothelioma.

As his medical bills added up, Al decided to contact our Los Angeles asbestos attorneys for help. We were able to file multiple claims on his behalf against the companies responsible for his asbestos exposure, and he received compensation without having to go to court.

Today, Al is considered stable. His mesothelioma payouts allowed him to undergo treatments, and he feels a sense of peace knowing his family’s financial future will be secure for years to come.

Jesse’s Story

When he was just 8 years old, Jesse began going to his father’s machinist shop. He helped clean the workspace, often collecting trash and sweeping the floors. When Jesse got older, he began working with various materials that contained asbestos, like adhesives and honeycomb.

After graduating from college, starting a family and securing a great job, Jesse became ill. He was diagnosed with mesothelioma, and fears of leaving his wife Colette and their two children began to grow. The couple contacted our mesothelioma lawyers in Los Angeles.

Sadly, Jesse passed away just a few months after his diagnosis at the age of 62. Thankfully, our team was able to secure compensation for Colette and his family.

“I really admired and respected him,” said Jesse’s attorney. “His family was more important to him than anything, and I knew I wasn’t just fighting for them because he was a client — I was fighting for them because he was a friend.
