Wisconsin Mesothelioma Lawyers Continue to Help WI Asbestos Victims

Wisconsin mesothelioma lawyers from the national asbestos litigation firm of Levy Konigsberg LLP continue to help victims of asbestos exposure and their families pursue justice and compensation that they deserve.

Wisconsin mesothelioma lawyersAPPLETON, Wisconsin, February 8, 2013 - Wisconsin mesothelioma lawyers from the national asbestos litigation firm of Levy Konigsberg LLP (“LK”) are currently representing clients in multiple Wisconsin asbestos personal injury and wrongful death cases.

Every year, thousands of men and women across the country are diagnosed with mesothelioma, including many in Wisconsin. According to the National Center for Health Statistics, Wisconsin is ranked 14th in the nation on asbestos deaths from mesothelioma and thirteenth in the country for number of deaths from other asbestos-related diseases, such as lung cancer and asbestosis. Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases could have been prevented if workers had been warned about the dangers of asbestos and had been properly protected from exposure to the deadly carcinogen.

With its “rust belt” cities of Milwaukee, Racine and Kenosha, and extensive automotive and farm equipment plants, machine shops, paper mills and production plants, breweries, and pharmaceutical, cosmetic and industrial chemical plants, Wisconsin was and still is home to several industries that have significantly contributed to asbestos exposure.

As part of its industrial framework and location on the Great Lakes, Wisconsin was also the home to Manitowoc, Sturgeon Bay, and Leathem D. Smith Shipbuilding Companies (merged as Bay Shipbuilding), whose storied ship building history included an entire fleet of WWII submarines and numerous other military and commercial vessels. Heavy amounts of asbestos were used during both the construction of the vessels and then to insulate machinery onboard the ships - all making shipyards among the most asbestos-contaminated work sites known. Moreover, many schools, hospitals, public buildings, and most power plants in Wisconsin have been found to be sites of asbestos exposure.

LK's Wisconsin-licensed mesothelioma lawyer has shared a sampling of work sites that may have contributed to asbestos exposure in Wisconsin:

If you or your loved one are a Wisconsin resident or were exposed to asbestos in Wisconsin, and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, please call 1-800-637-6529 or contact us electronically at www.levylaw.com to receive a FREE consultation with experienced Wisconsin mesothelioma lawyers at Levy Konigsberg LLP.

ATTENTION: Mesothelioma has no known cure and often causes severe pain, suffering, and other types of damage, such as loss of consortium, and loss of income. Additionally, due to the exceedingly high cost of mesothelioma treatments, many families exhaust savings and accumulate financial debt in order to pay for the medical expenses of their family member.

Under the law of most states, pain and suffering from mesothelioma may be compensated through the award of money damages, usually obtained with the help of experienced mesothelioma attorneys. In some states other types of damages may also be recovered.

Asbestos litigation affords mesothelioma victims the opportunity to receive financial compensation and hold accountable the companies that caused their asbestos exposure.

IMPORTANT: If you or your family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should get in touch with a mesothelioma lawyer as early as possible to determine if you have a mesothelioma case and to:

  • Preserve your rights to bring a legal action against the responsible parties within the limited time frame allowed by law, known as statute of limitations;
  • Obtain maximum compensation in your case by being able to:
    • Preserve evidence and establish facts of the asbestos exposure while the claimant is still alive and able to provide information;
    • File and resolve a lawsuit against the responsible parties before they file for bankruptcy or, if they already have, to obtain compensation before their bankruptcy trust funds run out of money;
  • Expedite your case, as courts tend to give higher priority to mesothelioma lawsuits where the claimant is still alive.

Find out whether you have a case by speaking to one of our experienced mesothelioma lawyers via our 24/7 toll-free hotline at 1-800-MESO-LAW (1-800-637-6529) or by submitting an email inquiry (see form above). Our attorneys will be quick to respond to you and happy to answer all of your questions.

NOTE: While our offices are located in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Georgia, many of our mesothelioma lawyers are licensed to practice law in a number of U.S. states and have the capability and extensive experience of representing mesothelioma clients throughout the United States.
