A Montana man’s family received a $4.9 million settlement after he was exposed to asbestos and contracted pleural mesothelioma, a deadly cancer that attacks the lining of the lungs. Unfortunately, the type of mesothelioma (pleural mesothelioma) is fatal, and the man died in 2006. Simmons Hanly Conroy mesothelioma lawyers represented him in his case against the asbestos companies responsible for his death.
Virtually all of his asbestos exposure came from his work as an automotive and farm equipment mechanic, an occupation he held for the majority of his life. During this time, he replaced thousands of brakes and hundreds of clutches, which contained asbestos.
