Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma in Virginia

Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in Virginia is important because it means we are familiar with Virginia 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 mesothelioma lawyers in Virginia have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures, and they are ready to help you and your family as well.

Miles for Meso in Virginia

Started by Simmons Hanly Conroy in 2009, Miles for Meso is a 5K race that raises funds and awareness for mesothelioma, while bringing together a community of those affected by asbestos exposure. Miles for Meso races have been held across the country, including in Virginia.

“Miles for Meso means hope. It means hope that, at some point, all the fundraising and all the awareness is going to result in effective treatments of the disease and hopefully someday a cure,” said Joyce Larson, a Simmons Hanly Conroy client and the wife of a mesothelioma warrior.

Together, Miles for Meso races across the country have raised over $800,000 for mesothelioma research and advocacy. Simmons Hanly Conroy continues to be a national sponsor of the event.
