Asbestos Exposure in New Jersey

Textile Mill

Many of New Jersey’s prominent industries, including chemical development, textile manufacturing, shipping and railroad development, exposed workers to large quantities of toxic asbestos. Several power plants and manufacturing plants across the state employed over 400,000 workers that were placed at risk.

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 New Jersey

New Jersey ranks 8th in the US for asbestos-related deaths. There have been 1,978 deaths from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer between 1999 – 2013.

Filing an Asbestos Claim if You Live in New Jersey

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 New Jersey. 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.
