Asbestos Lawsuits, West Virginia, & Experience

Thousands of Americans were exposed to asbestos on the job in West Virginia. 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 West Virginia.

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 West Virginia 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.

Malignant Mesothelioma in West Virginia's Counties

Between 1999 and 2010, 310 deaths were attributed to mesothelioma in West Virginia. Nationwide, mesothelioma claimed 29,827 people, making West Virginia rank number 29 out of 51 (all 50 states plus the District of Columbia). In other words, 28 other states had more mesothelioma deaths than West Virginia.

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 West Virginia counties have the highest age-ajusted death rates from malignant mesothelioma (only West Virginia counties with at least 10 mesothelioma deaths are included):
