Countless unsuspecting American workers were exposed to asbestos in the 20th century, and they are paying for it today with mesothelioma – a cancer that is usually found in the lining of the lungs, heart and abdomen – along with other asbestos-related diseases. Often they brought home more than a paycheck. They brought home asbestos fibers that would make family members ill, as well. Even once the dangers of asbestos became known, many companies that manufactured, distributed or used products containing asbestos neglected to protect their workers. It wasn’t until the 1970s that widespread public awareness led to the phasing out of this deadly substance.
But for many Southeast Wisconsin families, the damage was already done.

I’ll explain the bankruptcy claims process, how to thoroughly document your asbestos exposure history, and what we need to do to maintain a successful lawsuit against the asbestos manufacturers, distributors and/or employers that are liable for your pain, suffering and financial distress. Only then can you meaningfully decide the right course for you and your family.
