How Can Mesothelioma Lawyers in Oregon Help Me?

These lawyers may be able to file a mesothelioma lawsuit and secure compensation without putting you or your loved ones under additional stress.

Oregon Residents and Asbestos Exposure

Construction sites and military bases across the state of Oregon used asbestos before the risks were known. Learn about high-risk asbestos exposure sites below.

Asbestos Job Sites in Oregon

Our team has identified 1,700 sites in Oregon that used asbestos-containing products.

Military Exposure

Every U.S. military branch relied on asbestos between the 1930s and early 1980s for fireproofing and insulation. Military service members didn’t know that asbestos could cause mesothelioma.

Two notable sources of military asbestos exposure in Oregon included Tongue Point Naval Shipyard in Astoria and the Umatilla Chemical Depot used by the Army.

Numerous other shipyards found throughout the state could have put Navy veterans and civilians at risk of exposure.

If you served on any military site, ship, or base and later developed mesothelioma, you may qualify to file for VA benefits and pursue legal compensation.

Contact us now to get help accessing mesothelioma VA benefits if you served in the military and now have this cancer.
