Asbestos Exposure in Tennessee

Power Plant

The paper and pulp and energy production industries are largely associated with asbestos exposure in Tennessee. Employees working in the pulp and paper industry between 1945 and 1996 were at a high risk of asbestos exposure.

The energy industry also exposed many workers to asbestos. The Tennessee Valley Authority operates many energy facilities including hydroelectric, nuclear, wind turbines, and more. All of these energy production facilities have contained asbestos at some point in their existence.

Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Tennessee

Tennessee ranks 17th in the US for asbestos-related deaths. There have been 612 deaths from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer between 1999 – 2013.

Filing an Asbestos Claim if You Live in Tennessee

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 Tennessee. 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.
