Asbestos Exposure in Mississippi

Energy Plant

Much like many southern states, Mississippi is known for its oil refineries, power generators, and shipbuilding manufacturers. Petroleum is a highly volatile substance, even in crude form. 

For this reason, asbestos insulation was used throughout oil refining facilities in structures, on machinery, and in pipefittings. Even the protective clothing worn by oil workers was lined with asbestos.

Unfortunately, many of the families of workers at the sites 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 Mississippi

Mississippi ranks 26th in the U.S. for asbestos-related deaths. There have been 420 deaths from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer between 1999 – 2013.

Filing an Asbestos Claim if You Live in Mississippi

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 Mississippi. 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.
