Asbestos Exposure in Montana

Mine in Montana

Nearly half the population of Libby, Montana has been diagnosed with asbestos disease, and another 200 have died as a result of exposure to asbestos-tainted vermiculite. Vermiculite, by itself, is a relatively innocuous form of clay. When it’s heated, it expands 8–30 times its size, making it a lightweight, fire-resistant form of insulation. It was marketed as Zonolite® and shipped all over the nation.

The Libby Mine and Karst Mine were the two biggest contributors to asbestos-related materials being released into the air. Tons of vermiculate that originated here was contaminated by asbestos in the mines and was shipped throughout the country. There are an estimated 35 million homes that contain insulation of this type.

Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Montana

Montana ranks 31st in the US for asbestos-related deaths. There have been 273 deaths from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer between 1999 – 2013.

Filing an Asbestos Claim if You Live in Montana

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 Montana. 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.
