Asbestos Exposure Washington

Washington Mesothelioma & Asbestos Lawyers

Asbestos Exposure in Washington

Oil Refinery

Washington is known for oil refining, power plants, and aluminum processing, all of which are notorious for using asbestos. Aluminum production requires high levels of heat, so large amounts of asbestos insulation was used throughout these facilities. 

These insulating materials had a tendency to deteriorate and crumble over the years, releasing millions of asbestos fibers into the environment.

Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Washington

Washington ranks 9th in the U.S. for asbestos-related deaths. There have been 1,576 deaths from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer between 1999 – 2013.

Filing an Asbestos Claim if You Live in Washington

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 Washington. 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.
