Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma in Washington

Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in Washington is important because it means we are familiar with Washington job sites where asbestos exposure occurred.

Asbestos is a deadly mineral that has been used in thousands of products in multiple industries including manufacturing, steel working, shipbuilding and more. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested, they increase a person’s risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma.

Our experienced mesothelioma lawyers in Washington have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures, and they are ready to help you and your family as well.

Walter’s Story

In 1954, Walter Twidwell joined the U.S. Navy as a boiler tender and fireman. He conducted maintenance and repairs in engine and fire rooms of vessels ported in New York, California and Washington, until he retired as a Chief Petty Officer in 1973.

During his 20 years of service, Walter worked with Goodyear gaskets, which contained asbestos, and was diagnosed with mesothelioma as a result. Although the company knew asbestos exposure posed health risks, it failed to warn those who worked with its asbestos-containing gaskets of these risks.

By working with our mesothelioma lawyers in Washington, Walter was able to hold Goodyear accountable for its corporate negligence and secure financial compensation for his medical expenses.

Giving Back to the Local Washington Community

At Simmons Hanly Conroy, we don’t just talk the talk — we walk the walk. We passionately stand up for clients in the courtroom and in local Washington communities by giving back.

Miles for Meso in Federal Way

Miles for Meso is a 5K race that raises funds and awareness for mesothelioma, while bringing together a community of those affected by asbestos exposure. In 2009, Simmons Hanly Conroy hosted the first race at the firm’s national headquarters in Alton, Illinois, and the firm is a national sponsor of the race to this day. Since that first race, 10 other states have held Miles for Meso races, including one in the Federal Way area of Washington.

“The whole run and the purpose of it is to bring awareness to the community,” says Diana Stewart, Washington Miles for Meso race director. “[Mesothelioma] is hard to pronounce, hard to spell, hard to treat. So we’re trying to educate… the community about asbestos and how it affects people — and perhaps a cure can be found.”

The first Miles for Meso 5K Memorial Run/Walk in Washington was held in 2012. More than 100 people came to the first race and raised approximately $12,000 for the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation. The WA Miles for Meso Run/Walk is held over Fourth of July weekend at the Federal Way Community Center.

Together, Miles for Meso races across the country have raised over $890,000 for mesothelioma research and advocacy.
