Indiana Mesothelioma

Indiana Asbestos Attorney Compassion, Justice, and Peace of Mind

At The Throneberry Law Group, we understand just how serious the obstacles encountered by mesothelioma victims can be. That is why we remain committed to making sure that mesothelioma patients receive adequate compensation from the parties responsible for their asbestos exposure. Our principal attorney obtained a graduate degree from Purdue University and since that time has obtained considerable experience helping asbestos victims pursue compensation. He also has experienced the devastating effects of mesothelioma firsthand after losing his father-in-law to the condition.

The Centers for Disease Control report that 1,939 people in Indiana died from mesothelioma between 1999 and 2015. Indiana’s Jefferson and Washington counties ranked among the highest for mesothelioma death rates. Workers who are involved in the steel, hospital, oil refinery, and power plant industries are at increased risk of being exposed to asbestos.

Railroad companies have a long history of using asbestos in a variety of machinery including boilers, brakes, and clutches. As a result, a large number of workers were exposed to the dangerous substance.
