As part of our continued service to the community of Western New York, we are pleased to announce the launch of our new website, Brakes and Mesothelioma, located at  This user-friendly website offers information regarding asbestos exposure through the repair and maintenance of truck, passenger car, tractor and industrial machine brakes, as well as details regarding the federal government’s stance on asbestos-containing brake linings. Our website also includes a comprehensive list of brake manufacturers and videos featuring auto and brake mechanics describing their exposure to asbestos-containing brake pads and linings.

Brakes and Mesothelioma serves as a unique tool for auto and brake mechanics diagnosed with mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.  Until the 1990’s, asbestos was used in brake linings, clutches and gaskets.  Lipsitz, Ponterio & Comerford created this website as part of an ongoing effort to provide workers with valuable technical and legal information regarding exposure to asbestos-containing brake pads and linings. Because asbestos was never completely banned in the United States, many workers were exposed to asbestos-containing brakes, some as recently as the year 2000. Our goal at Lipsitz, Ponterio & Comerford is to ensure that information pertaining to asbestos-containing brakes is easily accessible to brake and auto mechanics suffering from mesothelioma and seeking legal redress in New York State.

Lipsitz, Ponterio & Comerford’s Brakes and Mesothelioma website was implemented and designed by our in-house marketing team. We encourage you to visit this helpful new site at  If you have any questions regarding our firm or our Brakes and Mesothelioma website, please let us know by clicking on “Contact Us” or by calling our office at (716) 849-0701.
