New York Mesothelioma Settlements

Our mesothelioma law firm has recovered $7 billion in verdicts and settlements on behalf of thousands of clients affected by mesothelioma throughout the United States.

A recent success story involved a $3 million verdict for a New York pipefitter’s family. For more than a decade, Gerald Suttner, was exposed to asbestos used in valves manufactured by the defendant, Crane Co. This asbestos exposure led to a pleural mesothelioma diagnosis, of which he died twelve months later at age 77. After his death, Simmons Hanly Conroy attorneys Myles Epperson and Perry Browder, along with co-counsel, represented Suttner’s wife and daughter.

“The defendant’s use of asbestos and failure to warn workers and consumers of its dangers is inexcusable,” said Browder. “On behalf of Mr. Suttner’s family, we are proud to have won and held Crane responsible for its decision to use this lethal material in its products.”

Just like Suttner, all victims of asbestos-related diseases and their families have a right to be heard in the civil justice system, and our attorneys are passionate about enforcing each of our client’s rights while giving them the respect and attention they deserve.

Asbestos and Mesothelioma in New York

Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in New York is important because it means we are familiar with New York 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 and they are ready to help you and your family as well.
