Asbestos Exposure in Wisconsin
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 leads the country when it comes to deaths related to asbestos:
- 14th in the nation for asbestos deaths from mesothelioma and
- 13th in the nation 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.
Common Sites for Asbestos Exposure in Wisconsin
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 vessels and insultation of 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.

Mesothelioma, Asbestos-Related Disease & Your Rights
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 to pay for the medical expenses of their family member.
In most states, pain and suffering from mesothelioma may be compensated through the award of money damages. 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.
