Montana Mesothelioma Attorneys

Our mesothelioma lawyers are proud to represent mesothelioma victims and their families across the United States, including hardworking men and women in Montana.

Asbestos exposure is the only known cause of mesothelioma. Tons of asbestos were mined in the United States throughout the 20th century and used in many industries, including Montana power plants, mines, oil refineries, schools and universities.

The state of Montana also has deposits of naturally occurring asbestos, and is home to the Libby, Montana asbestos and vermiculite mines operated for decades by the prominent asbestos corporation W.R. Grace & Company.

Major cities in Montana where asbestos exposure is known to have occurred at job sites include:

  • Billings
  • Missoula
  • Great Falls
  • Bozeman
  • Butte
  • Helena
  • Kalispell
  • Havre
  • Anaconda
  • Libby

Mesothelioma Resources

Mesothelioma is a rare and very serious form of cancer found in the lining surrounding the lungs, the stomach, the testes, or the heart. The only known cause of mesothelioma is exposure to asbestos.

It often takes 10 to 60 years after exposure to asbestos before the symptoms of mesothelioma develop. This period of time is referred to as a latency period. Because of the latency period, the disease commonly affects men and women that are at least 50 years of age and that worked with asbestos between 10 and 60 years ago.

Montana Mesothelioma Facts

Today, the use of asbestos and the handling of asbestos materials are regulated in the United States but its use is not banned. It is recognized as a hazardous material and is monitored by OSHA and the EPA but exposure risks still exist. The United States still consumes 30 million pounds of new asbestos per year. Additionally, many old homes, factories, schools, warehouses, and commercial buildings still contain old asbestos products.

Asbestos also occurs naturally in Montana and was commercially mined for decades.

The average incident rate of mesothelioma in the United States is 1 / 100,000 - the state of Montana is below the National average.

There are a number of different jobs that caused a larger amount of exposure to asbestos on a more frequent basis. Below you will find today's employment numbers for several of these high risk jobs in Montana:

Occupation 2008 Montana Employment
Construction 31,811
Mechanical Engineers 350
Electricians 2,230
Teachers & Instructors 1,090
