Asbestos Exposure in Oregon

PaperMill-WisconsinIn Oregon, shipyards, lumber mills, and paper mills account for a significant number of work sites that used asbestos-contaminated products throughout the years.

Shipyards along the coastline were primary locations of exposure. Because asbestos resists corrosion and high temperatures, it was an ideal material for use in the shipbuilding industry. Asbestos caused harm to workers due to lack of ventilation, causing worker to inhale asbestos fibers.

Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Oregon

Oregon ranks 19th in the US for asbestos-related deaths. There have been 788 deaths from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer between 1999 – 2013.

Filing an asbestos claim if you live in Oregon

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 Oregon. 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. We handle asbestos cases all across the USA, so we know how to file, where to file, and what to do to get you the compensation you deserve.
