Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma in Louisiana

Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in Louisiana is important because it means we are familiar with Louisiana 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.

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

Henry’s Story

After graduating high school in New Orleans, Henry Pete went to work as a longshoreman with his father from 1964 to 1968, before becoming a chiropractor. In the shipping industry, African-American workers like Henry and his father were often assigned the dirtiest and most dangerous jobs.

Henry knew he was exposed to asbestos — but, at the time, he didn’t know the dangers of asbestos exposure. Now, he and his family have suffered the consequences, but that doesn’t mean the companies that exposed him to asbestos should get off scot-free. That’s when our mesothelioma lawyers in Louisiana got involved.

“Henry should have never been diagnosed with mesothelioma because he should have never been exposed to asbestos,” said Gary DiMuzio, Henry’s lead trial attorney.

Working with Simmons Hanly Conroy helped Henry to secure both justice and financial compensation using the legal process. He passed away knowing those responsible for his exposures were held accountable and his family would be secure.
