Asbestos in Wisconsin

The majority of people who have been exposed to asbestos did so through their employment, often due to inadequate safety precautions. Others may have been exposed to asbestos indirectly when they come in contact with the clothing of a family member involved in a high-risk asbestos occupation.

Asbestos has been widely used in many industrial products including cement, brake linings, roof shingles, flooring products, textiles, and insulation. When microscopic asbestos dust particles become airborne, they can be inhaled or swallowed and can cause serious health issues.

A number of work sites throughout Wisconsin are linked to asbestos exposure. 

FAQs for Mesothelioma Attorneys

How much will it cost to investigate my claim?

Nothing. Investigation of your asbestos claim is at no cost to you or your family.  Typically, an investigator or one of our mesothelioma attorneys will call or visit you to gather information about you, your family, and work history. After sufficient information has been gathered, a recommendation will be made as to whether proceeding with the filing of a mesothelioma lawsuit is a viable option. There is no financial cost to you.

How much will it cost for your legal representation?

Nothing. There is no financial risk on your part in filing a mesothelioma lawsuit.  Eaton John represents clients on a “contingency” basis, which means that we will only collect a fee if and when you collect a settlement.  One of our mesothelioma attorneys will meet with you to go over these matters in detail.

How long can I wait to file a mesothelioma lawsuit?
While each case is unique, the law imposes certain time limitations on how long one can wait to file a mesothelioma or asbestos lawsuit until it is “too late.”  These are called “statutes of limitations.”  Essentially, an individual only has a certain period of time after they are diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease in which to file their asbestos claim. As a result, we advise that you contact an attorney immediately so that your case can be evaluated.
Should I work with a firm closer to my home?

Qualified representation with a track record of successful settlement is the most important consideration. We will work with a team of lawyers that has represented families affected by mesothelioma from all across the country, recovering millions of dollars in the process.*

Will I have to travel?

The mesothelioma attorneys involved in your case are happy to travel to see you. Though there are no guarantees that you will not have to travel, in most instances it is unlikely that you will need to leave the area in which you live.

Will I have to testify at trial?

Every case is prepared as if it is going to trial. However, many mesothelioma cases settle out of court without going through a trial. In the event that a trial does occur, the process is made as easy on you and your family as possible.

Will my case be part of a mesothelioma class action?

No. Class action lawsuits are reserved for scenarios in which a group of individuals are injured in substantially the same manner. Since asbestos-related diseases manifest themselves differently in each affected individual, it is our belief that such claims are not proper for class actions. Each case is handled on an individual basis so that you receive the settlement that you deserve.
