Record-Breaking Mesothelioma Verdicts in New York

At Simmons Hanly Conroy, we stand by our clients and fight on their behalf to maximize their results in each case. In doing so, our firm has secured some of the largest jury verdicts in the history of New York City Asbestos Litigation (NYCAL).


$60 Million

A New York Supreme Court jury awarded $60 million to the family of the late Pietro Macaluso, who was diagnosed with mesothelioma after working as a laborer in Brooklyn in the 1970s. This is the largest single plaintiff verdict in NYCAL history.

$7 Million

A New York Supreme Court jury awarded $4.6 million to Thomas McGlynn, who developed mesothelioma after working as a welder on ships in and around New York City in the 1970s and 80s. After a full trial, the judge granted a motion of additur, which increases the jury’s awards for both past and future pain and suffering, raising his verdict results to $7 million. This was the first time in NYCAL history that a jury’s award was judicially increased.

$40.1 Million

A New York Supreme Court jury awarded $40.1 million to Walter Twidwell, who was diagnosed with mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos while serving in the U.S. Navy and working aboard vessels ported in New York and other areas. This is the largest pure compensatory verdict in NYCAL history.

New York Mesothelioma Settlements

Our mesothelioma law firm has recovered $8.6 billion in verdicts and settlements on behalf of thousands of clients affected by mesothelioma throughout the United States, including over $215 million in mesothelioma settlements and verdicts secured on behalf of patients who lived or worked in New York and their families.

Another recent verdict involved securing compensation 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 12 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 and recovered a $3 million verdict.

“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.
