From the Bergman Draper Oslund law office on 5th Avenue in downtown, our Portland mesothelioma law firm serves clients across all of Oregon. With lumber, paper, and shipyards as significantindustries for decades, Oregon has hundreds of job sites where hard-working men and women were exposed to asbestos.
There are many Oregon industries where companies used asbestos components and exposed workers to the invisible and toxic fiber. In addition to those facilities where asbestos was used in construction and components, there was also some asbestos mining in Oregon.
Some of the many Oregon job sites confirmed for asbestos exposure are:
for a carpenter diagnosed at age 65 that worked at many job sites in Oregon
for a paper mill security guard in Springfield, Oregon diagnosed at age 33
for a forklift driver at Electric Steel in Portland at the age of 66

We will closely examine your medical information and work and job site history to determine the best course of action. You can come into our Oregon office, or we can come to you if you can’t get to us. With detailed background information in hand, we can give you an idea of the claim value and process.
We only accept mesothelioma cases. It is what all our Oregon attorneys and staff devote their time to every day. Because of our dedication, we have remarkable expertise and experience fighting for the rights of asbestos exposure victims.

Our track record shows we win significant settlements for our hard-working Oregon clients.
