EAST ALTON, Ill., Oct. 24 – LAWFUEL – The Law News Network – Jeff Cooper, managing partner of SimmonsCooper LLC, announced today the launch of the firm’s new blog — which can be accessed at http://www.benzeneasbestos.com. The blog is designed to provide information to the media and public about asbestos, benzene, and other major issues — as well as to correct fallacious information disseminated
about these issues and about SimmonsCooper itself.
“There are mountains of disinformation out there. We decided to publish a
blog in order to set the record straight,” said Cooper. “While asbestos and
benzene are matters of immediate concern, we are also dedicated to ensuring
that accurate information is available to the media and public in lieu of the
high-volume and self-serving rhetoric that surrounds personal injury and
worker safety cases.”
The SimmonsCooper blog serves as a regular news update as well as resource
of materials. It contains an information bank with access to facts, research,
and literature on the array of medical concerns and dangers surrounding
asbestos and benzene exposure.
The blog also allows victims to share their stories with readers,
providing all readers with the opportunity to offer feedback. The
SimmonsCooper blog is thus an important new forum for all victims of corporate
negligence to let themselves be heard.
The blog also takes on the issue of forum-shopping head-on and explains
why SimmonsCooper and other firms are filing cases in Delaware.
Finally, the blog includes information on Business-to-Business litigation
in response to the mounting interest among business leaders in law firms that
can provide real courtroom experience along with alternative billing
arrangements that correct the ongoing abuse of hourly billing by traditional
