A St. Louis area man and his family received a $3.5 million settlement after he was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a deadly asbestos cancer. The 60-year-old husband, father and grandfather was diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma, a form of mesothelioma that attacks the lining of the lungs, known as the mesothelium. The Simmons Hanly Conroy represented him in his case against the asbestos companies responsible.
The man worked as an automobile mechanic during his life, which caused his exposure to asbestos. He still lives in the St. Louis, Missouri area, and continues to fight his mesothelioma condition.
