Many North Dakota residents have received millions of dollars through mesothelioma settlements and trial verdicts.

Settlements and verdicts our legal partners have secured in the state included:

North Dakota mesothelioma lawyers will fight to get the highest amount of compensation possible for you.

North Dakota Residents and Asbestos Exposure

Construction sites, military bases, and other structures across North Dakota were built with asbestos before the risks were fully known. View some of the high-risk asbestos exposure sites below.

Asbestos Job Sites in North Dakota

Our team has identified over 200 sites in North Dakota that relied on asbestos-containing materials.

Some of these job sites include:

  • 1st National Bank Building, Hettinger
  • Armour and Company, West Fargo
  • Center Power Plant, Center
  • Elgin High School, Elgin
  • Excel Pork Division, Beardstown
  • Gasoline Plant, Tioga
  • State Industrial School, Mandan

Anyone who worked with or around asbestos-containing materials at these job sites could’ve breathed in or swallowed asbestos fibers, putting them at risk of mesothelioma 10-50 years later.

Besides these high-risk job sites, anyone living or working in buildings made with asbestos (such as schools, libraries, or hospitals) made with asbestos could have also been exposed.

Military Exposure

Between the 1930s and early 1980s, all branches of the U.S. military relied on asbestos as it was cheap and helped keep assets like bases and buildings fireproof. At the time, U.S. service members didn’t know that asbestos could cause mesothelioma.

North Dakota military bases that were built with asbestos included:

  • Minot Air Force Base, Minot
  • Grand Forks Air Force Base, Emerado
  • Minuteman Missile Site, Grand Forks

If you served on any of these bases and later developed mesothelioma, you may qualify to file for VA benefits and pursue legal compensation.
