Asbestos Exposure in Iowa

Rancho Seco Power Plant California 300X 243

Power plant workers and farming equipment workers in Iowa have the highest risk of mesothelioma and lung cancer due to asbestos exposure. Additionally, Iowa was home to manufacturing plants, paper mills, construction sites and other industrial settings where asbestos exposure occurred.

Unfortunately, many of the families of these workers also have an increased risk of developing cancer because of the asbestos fibers that were carried home on the body and clothing of those workers.

Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Iowa

Iowa ranks 28th in the US for asbestos-related deaths. There have been 414 deaths from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer between 1999 – 2013.

Filing an Asbestos Claim if You Live in Iowa

You do not have to file your claim in the state in which you live. 

It’s far more important to contact an attorney with a strong history of experience specifically in asbestos cases, than it is to select one who happens to be in your area of Iowa. The most successful attorneys in your area may have never handled an asbestos case.

SWMW attorneys dedicate the overwhelming majority of their time and effort prosecuting mesothelioma claims, so we know which states and jurisdictions are going to provide the best outcome for your case and can get your case settled faster.
