Michigan Asbestos Claims

Asbestos is killing Michigan's workers.

In just over a decade, 1,132 Michigan residents succumbed to Mesothelioma. In that same time, asbestosis claimed an additional 417, taking the total deaths up to 1,549 Michigan residents between the years of 1999 and 20101.

These numbers neglect to account for the scores of workers affected by other asbestos cancers, such as lung cancer, colon cancer, laryngeal cancer, and stomach cancer.

Michigan's #1 Mesothelioma Lawyers

Michigan's Cities

Asbestos cases are complex. Often our clients have worked at several different job sites, had a half dozen or more employers, and dealt with products from hundreds of manufacturers. When that client finds out they've got an asbestos cancer, there is a lot of leg work required to figure out what asbestos containing products were present, when, and where. This is information we've been collecting for decades.

The Michigan cities below represent just some of the information in our databases; click on a city to see some of the job sites we've collected asbestos information from. If you've been injured by asbestos, we have the knowledge and experience to help you pursue your Michigan asbestos claim. Contact our asbestos attorneys today.

Products, Places, & People needed for your Michigan Asbestos Claim

Mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis, and other cancers caused by exposure to asbestos are naturally more common in certain industries, certain occupations, and even certain locations. When you've been helping the thousands of people injured by asbestos that GPW has, for as long as we have, the number of industries, job sites, and companies with which you're familiar grows quite big.

This familiarity is a very helpful thing for those who subsequently get mesothelioma or asbestos lung cancer, because asbestos claims are complex. A single case on behalf of one injured person can involve more than 5,000 documents. People change jobs, workplaces, move across state, or out of state altogether. Piecing together all the places a person worked, the occupations they held, and products they worked each step of the way with is crucial to identifying their asbestos exposure history.

Burden of Proof

Despite the fact that mesothelioma's only known cause is asbestos exposure, the burden of proof is placed on the injured party. Where you worked, what products and materials you worked with, and how you were exposed are all up to the plaintiff to prove. Lung cancer and other asbestos-caused cancer cases are that much more challenging.

Decades may have passed between your exposure and diagnosis, yet you're being asked to remember seemingly insignificant details of your employment history. What color were the bags of insulating material you used? Where in the plant did you spend most of your time? Who remembers you working in that department?

We can assist you with your Michigan asbestos claim. Over the past three decades GPW has accumulated thousands of corporate documentation, a vast knowledge of asbestos products, hundreds of depositions, and an extensive knowledge of job sites throughout Michigan. For a client who couldn't recall anything beyond the green design on the bag of asbestos material that were delivered to his plant, we were able to locate a picture of the bag and shipping invoices indicating their delivery to the worksite.

To help you understand just a small portion of the information and resources we have accumulated from the thousands of Michigan asbestos claims we've filed, we've listed many of the Michigan job sites our past and current clients worked at on these pages. You can view a list of companies that have established asbestos bankruptcy trusts.

Whether you worked at one or many of these companies, or none at all, we can help you protect your rights against manufacturers who produced, sold, and used asbestos products with little regard for the health and safety of millions of workers and their families. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you and your loved ones with your Michigan asbestos claim.
