Filing a Mesothelioma Lawsuit in Wisconsin

Our Wisconsin mesothelioma lawyers are prepared to help you understand the lawsuit process and guide you through the legal system. We have more than 40 mesothelioma attorneys at our firm who focus solely on helping people like you.

Each senior attorney operates within a small team of several experienced attorneys, legal staff members and registered nurses, which ensures you’ll receive personalized attention while your case progresses.

Your legal team can pursue mesothelioma compensation in several ways:

  • Asbestos Trust Fund Claims: Over $30 billion is estimated to still be available in asbestos trust funds for mesothelioma victims and their families — and you don’t have to step foot in court to get it.
  • Mesothelioma Lawsuits: Filing a lawsuit can secure significant compensation from the companies responsible for your asbestos exposure and illness.
  • Veterans Benefits: Veterans make up 33% of all mesothelioma cases because asbestos was used across all branches of the military. VA benefits can offer victims health care and monthly compensation.

Together, your team can handle every step of the legal process on your behalf, from collecting evidence for your case to filing your claim in time.

Deadlines to Taking Legal Action

Wisconsin has a unique set of laws called statutes of limitation that restrict how long mesothelioma patients and their family members have to file a mesothelioma lawsuit. This makes it particularly important to contact mesothelioma attorneys in Wisconsin as soon as possible after your diagnosis.

Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma in Wisconsin

Our knowledgeable Wisconsin mesothelioma attorneys have helped many past clients identify where they were exposed to asbestos, a dangerous mineral that can cause asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma.

Quick Facts About Asbestos

  • Over 3,000 household and industrial products contained asbestos, including roofing shingles, talcum powder, automobile brakes, insulation, boilers and more
  • Asbestos is a natural mineral that is durable and resistant to heat and electricity
  • Multiple industries, including manufacturing, steel working, shipbuilding and more, used asbestos
  • Inhaling or ingesting asbestos fibers can cause mesothelioma to develop 10-50 years after initial exposure

More than 1 million U.S. workers were exposed to asbestos during the 20th century, and many face serious health risks to this day.

Over the past two decades, we’ve gathered evidence on thousands of Wisconsin job sites where asbestos was used. It’s possible we’ve already represented someone who worked at the same spot as you.

Let us put our experience to work for your family. Call (800) 326-8900 now to get started for free.

Dennis, a Simmons Hanly Conroy patient

Dennis’ Story

For 40 years — starting when he was just 12, sweeping floors — Dennis worked at his father and grandfather’s auto shop in southwestern Wisconsin. Unfortunately, he frequently handled automotive parts containing asbestos, like gaskets, brake pads and clutches.

After experiencing digestive symptoms at age 52, Dennis was diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma. The disease ended his career as a mechanic, and the stress and expense of his illness, combined with the loss of income, caused a lot of anxiety about finances.

At the urging of his union’s benefits administrator, Dennis called our mesothelioma attorneys in Wisconsin to explore his options. Although he expected a drawn-out process involving travel and court testimony, Dennis never had to leave his home to get the compensation he needed.

“Simmons Hanly Conroy made the legal process for my family and I very easy, and I was very comfortable,” Dennis said.

John, a Simmons Hanly Conroy patient

John’s Story

Before and after serving in the U.S. Army, where he earned a Bronze Star fighting in the Korean War, John worked at a Wisconsin Procter & Gamble paper facility as a utility man and instrument technician. He repaired and maintained boilers, pumps, compressors, furnaces, steam presses and steam pipes — which repeatedly exposed him to asbestos without his even knowing it.

On Thanksgiving Day 2010, John began experiencing difficulty breathing and chest pains. Doctors found that John had fluid surrounding his lung, and a biopsy confirmed the worse: a pleural mesothelioma diagnosis.

Because he wanted to make sure his family would be taken care of after he was gone, John contacted our Wisconsin asbestos attorneys for help filing a mesothelioma lawsuit. Our team was able to fulfill John’s final wish and provide for his family.

Pipefitter at work

Ken’s Story

Ken, a union pipefitter and father of 5, was unknowingly exposed to asbestos at multiple worksites throughout his career.

Years after he retired, Ken went for a routine check-up. The doctor noticed he was having trouble breathing, and an X-ray showed fluid in his lungs. Ken was diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma.

Our Wisconsin mesothelioma lawyers helped Ken hold the asbestos companies responsible for his illness accountable.

The settlements he received allowed him and his wife to buy their dream home, and Ken felt peace knowing that his family would be taken care of.

Wisconsin Mesothelioma Attorney FAQs

What is an asbestos exposure or mesothelioma lawsuit?

A mesothelioma lawsuit is a type of legal action taken against companies that made or used products containing asbestos.

Since many companies knowingly hid the dangers of asbestos from their employees and consumers, victims may be able to hold asbestos companies accountable and pursue compensation for injuries they suffered as a result of the company’s products.

Who can file a mesothelioma legal claim?

You may be able to file a mesothelioma legal claim if:

  • You were diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease
  • You’re the family member or estate representative of someone with mesothelioma

Even if your loved one has passed away from mesothelioma, you may still be able to pursue compensation on their behalf.

Call (800) 326-8900 now to learn if you may be eligible to file a claim with the help of a mesothelioma lawyer in Wisconsin. It costs nothing to speak with us.

How long do I have to file a mesothelioma claim in Wisconsin?

You have only a short window of time after your mesothelioma diagnosis to file an asbestos claim due to statutes of limitations, which are state-specific deadlines on when you can file a lawsuit.

Once these deadlines pass, it’s too late to take legal action for your illness.

Because of this, it’s important to contact us as soon as possible. Our team can listen to what’s going on and let you know if you still have time to take legal action.

How much does a Wisconsin mesothelioma attorney cost?

At Simmons Hanly Conroy, there are no initial or out-of-pocket costs to work with a Wisconsin asbestos attorney.

We work on a contingency basis, which means we only get paid if we successfully recover compensation for you.

Reach out to our team now to see if you qualify for compensation — for free.

Will I have to travel to file a mesothelioma claim?

Our Wisconsin asbestos lawyers will come to you, wherever you may be and whenever it’s convenient for you. We will travel to meet with you in the comfort of your own home or in a location of your choosing.

Though we can’t guarantee you won’t ever have to travel during your case, it’s very unlikely you will need to leave the area you live in to receive compensation.
