Asbestos and Mesothelioma Claims

What is mesothelioma?
How is mesothelioma linked to asbestos?
How do these cases work?


Asbestos was everywhere.  It was in commercial buildings and private homes.  Asbestos exposure unfortunately can lead to a diagnosis of terminal cancer or debilitating lung disease such as Mesothelioma. Victims worked directly or indirectly with asbestos and now are diagnosed with deadly consequences. We bring claims on the behalf of Victims of Asbestosis, Lung Disease and Mesothelioma among other cancers.

The lawyers in the firm of Schmidt-Salita Law Team have a long history of fighting for the rights of victims of Asbestos disease, Mesothelioma and other occupational diseases throughout the  Twin Cities, entire State of Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin. We fight for victims through Workers’ Comp claims and third-party lawsuits and help them through the process.


Workplace Asbestos Exposure

Asbestos was once widely used in hundreds of products and industrial materials as an insulator and flame retardant.  Asbestos was discontinued and banned because of the health hazards but the effects are still lingering in people who get sick. The symptoms of Mesothelioma, Asbestos-related lung cancer and Asbestosis may not occur until 10, 20, 30 or even 40 years after exposure. Asbestos is still in older wiring, pipes, ceiling tiles, building materials and vehicles, and when the fibers are airborne it still is ingested and can cause serious problems.

We represent Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin workers exposed to asbestos in their jobs, such as:

  • Taconite workers
  • Plumbers and pipefitters
  • Electricians
  • Auto mechanics
  • Refinery and power plant workers
  • Remodeling and demolition workers
  • Teachers exposed during school renovation
  • Hospital workers
  • Construction workers
  • Contractors
  • Government employees

  • Asbestos abatement workers
  • Roofers

We then pursue claims and lawsuits against those employers, mining companies, manufacturers and third parties for medical care, lost earnings, the victim’s pain and suffering, or the survivors’ losses.
