Washington Asbestos Lawyer

Did you work with asbestos in Washington? Mesothelioma and asbestosis claimed the lives of no fewer than 1,754 Washington residents between 1999 and 20101. This total does not account for those killed by other asbestos cancers, such as lung cancer, colon cancer, laryngeal cancer, and stomach cancer.

GPW's asbestos attorneys are familiar with many of the industrial, Chemical, Construction, Foundry, Other, Railroad, Refinery, School, Shipyard and other types of job sites throughout Washington where asbestos exposure occurred. Some of the Washington workers our law firm has helped were injured by asbestos at companies and sites in the 13 cities listed below.


Asbestos Lawsuits, Washington, & Experience

Thousands of Americans were exposed to asbestos on the job in Washington. Connecting the dots between places, products, and people you worked with over a career can be a challenging and complicated process. However, knowing the places you worked, what products were used there, and having the corroborating testimony of coworkers are all important factors in successfully pursuing your asbestos lawsuit in Washington.

Further complicating these already difficult cases, asbestos exposure injuries can take decades to become apparent, therefore it is not unusual for a client to have moved from Washington before their asbestos disease became apparent. In most states, once you have been diagnosed, the statute of limitations (or the time in which you can file suit) begins to run. Questions about Washington's statute of limitations in asbestos cases? [Contact us.]

Whether you lived in Washington for years or just during one summer years ago, we have the knowledge and resources track down the companies, products, & places where your asbestos exposure occurred. Our asbestos lawyers and support staff are familiar with long gone job sites and thousands of asbestos-containing products not only used in Washington, but nationwide. If you are looking for an asbestos lawyer in Washington, please contact us today to see how we can help you.

Malignant Mesothelioma in Washington's Counties

Between 1999 and 2010, 935 deaths were attributed to mesothelioma in Washington. Nationwide, mesothelioma claimed 29,827 people, making Washington rank number 10 out of 51 (all 50 states plus the District of Columbia). Only 9 other states suffered from more mesothelioma deaths than Washington.

In order to more accurately compare deaths, instead of using raw numbers, as reported above, epidemiologists often use age-adjusted death rates. Age adjusted death rates take into account the average age of residents, as a county or state with an older average age is naturally going to see more deaths than an area with a younger average age.

Between 2000 and 2009, the following Washington counties have the highest age-ajusted death rates from malignant mesothelioma (only Washington counties with at least 10 mesothelioma deaths are included):

Goldberg, Persky & White, P.C. Rating: 5 out of 5 When my husband and I had our first meeting with an Attorney from your office, I had no idea of the excellent service that I was about to receive. It has been 12 years since my husband died and thanks to your firm I have been able to live a comfortable life. Six years ago I found that I no longer could continue to take care of my home, that is when I moved to California to be near my youngest son. I moved into a 55+ Village, a very unusual one with over 18000 residents, 210 clubs and organizations, so I am able to keep quite active.
Goldberg, Persky & White, P.C. Rating: 5 out of 5 It has been a pleasure working with you. You handled my father's case very professionally and, considering the emotional aspects, very personally. Over a year ago, prior to the diagnosis, my father handed me a page torn from the Yellow Pages showing the ad for Goldberg, Persky & White. He told me that Goldberg, Persky was the company that I should contact if he gets sick. As usual, he gave me good advice.

Goldberg, Persky & White, P.C. Rating: 5 out of 5 I cannot find the words to tell you of my amazement and thankfulness that your firm was suggested to me. Thanks to you when the time comes I will be able, without being a burden to my children, to still take care of myself and have the help I need.
