Each senior attorney operates within a small team of several experienced attorneys, legal staff members and registered nurses, which ensures you’ll receive personalized attention while your case progresses.

Your legal team can pursue mesothelioma compensation in several ways:

  • Asbestos Trust Fund Claims: Over $30 billion is estimated to still be available in asbestos trust funds for mesothelioma victims and their families — and you don’t have to step foot in court to get it.
  • Mesothelioma Lawsuits: Filing a lawsuit can secure significant compensation from the companies responsible for your asbestos exposure and illness.
  • Veterans Benefits: Veterans make up 33% of all mesothelioma cases because asbestos was used across all branches of the military. VA benefits can offer victims health care and monthly compensation.

Together, your team can handle every step of the legal process on your behalf, from collecting evidence for your case to filing your claim in time.

Deadlines to Taking Legal Action

Washington has a unique set of laws called statutes of limitation that restrict how long mesothelioma patients and their family members have to file a mesothelioma lawsuit. This makes it particularly important to contact mesothelioma attorneys in Washington as soon as possible after your diagnosis.

Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma in Washington

Our knowledgeable Washington mesothelioma attorneys have helped many past clients identify where they were exposed to asbestos, a dangerous mineral that can cause asbestos-related diseases like mesothelioma.

Quick Facts About Asbestos

  • Over 3,000 household and industrial products contained asbestos, including roofing shingles, talcum powder, automobile brakes, insulation, boilers and more
  • Asbestos is a natural mineral that is durable and resistant to heat and electricity
  • Multiple industries, including manufacturing, steel working, shipbuilding and more, used asbestos
  • Inhaling or ingesting asbestos fibers can cause mesothelioma to develop 10-50 years after initial exposure

More than 1 million U.S. workers were exposed to asbestos during the 20th century, and many face serious health risks to this day.

Over the past two decades, we’ve gathered evidence on thousands of Washington job sites where asbestos was used. It’s possible we’ve already represented someone who worked at the same spot as you.

Let us put our experience to work for your family. Call (800) 326-8900 now to get started for free.

Walter, mesothelioma warrior

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. Decades later, he was diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma. Walter reached out to Simmons Hanly Conroy for help proving that Goodyear was responsible for his illness.

“They could go back to day one and had the paperwork to back them up,” said Walter. “I couldn’t stop thinking to myself, ‘Oh, wow! These boys know what they’re doin.’”

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.

Norris, mesothelioma warrior, at a game with his wife

Norris’ Story

Norris worked as a construction supervisor for approximately 20 years, where he oversaw employees who cut asbestos-containing pipes manufactured by J-M Manufacturing (JMM).

More than four decades after his initial exposure to asbestos, Norris was diagnosed with mesothelioma. Upon learning that many companies knew about the dangers of asbestos, he was furious. Norris and his wife Lori decided to contact our Washington mesothelioma lawyers for help fighting back against these companies.

“Hiring Simmons Hanly Conroy was the smartest decision we ever made, aside from deciding to get married,” said Lori. “To me, the Simmons difference is they become your family. They’re in it for all the right reasons.”

Before passing away at the age of 65, Norris was able to have his day in court. He found peace in delivering a powerful message of wrongdoing to the companies that caused him harm.

Racers from Miles for Meso holding a donation check

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 $925,000 for mesothelioma research and advocacy.

Washington Mesothelioma Lawyer FAQs

What is an asbestos exposure or mesothelioma lawsuit?

A mesothelioma lawsuit is a type of legal action taken against companies that made or used products containing asbestos.

Since many companies knowingly hid the dangers of asbestos from their employees and consumers, victims may be able to hold asbestos companies accountable and pursue compensation for injuries they suffered as a result of the company’s products.

Who can file a mesothelioma legal claim?

You may be able to file a mesothelioma legal claim if:

  • You were diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease
  • You’re the family member or estate representative of someone with mesothelioma

Even if your loved one has passed away from mesothelioma, you may still be able to pursue compensation on their behalf.

Call (800) 326-8900 now to learn if you may be eligible to file a claim with the help of a mesothelioma lawyer in Washington. It costs nothing to speak with us.

How long do I have to file a mesothelioma claim in Washington?

You have only a short window of time after your mesothelioma diagnosis to file an asbestos claim due to statutes of limitations, which are state-specific deadlines on when you can file a lawsuit.

Once these deadlines pass, it’s too late to take legal action for your illness.

Because of this, it’s important to contact us as soon as possible. Our team can listen to what’s going on and let you know if you still have time to take legal action.

How much does a Washington mesothelioma attorney cost?

At Simmons Hanly Conroy, there are no initial or out-of-pocket costs to work with a Washington asbestos attorney.

We work on a contingency basis, which means we only get paid if we successfully recover compensation for you.

Reach out to our team now to see if you qualify for compensation — for free.

Will I have to travel to file a mesothelioma claim?

Our Washington asbestos lawyers will come to you, wherever you may be and whenever it’s convenient for you. We will travel to meet with you in the comfort of your own home or in a location of your choosing.

Though we can’t guarantee you won’t ever have to travel during your case, it’s very unlikely you will need to leave the area you live in to receive compensation.
