Ashtabula Work Site Workers: Mesothelioma & Lung Cancer Claim 

Ohio Asbestos Attorney

Ashtabula has a long history of manufacturing and heavy industry. Workers in Northeast Ohio may have worked for decades in unsafe work environments, at the mercy of their employers who may have failed to warn of the potential health risks of workplace toxins and dangerous materials like benzene and asbestos.

Asbestos exposure has claimed the lives of many Ohio workers, in Ashtabula and in the surrounding tire and rubber belt in Cleveland, Akron, Warren, Youngstown and other manufacturing hubs for the rubber and auto industries.

Asbestos may have been present in many work facilities and employers may have known it was a hazard for workers long before they offered protective safety equipment or moved to limit worker exposure.

Joe Lyon is a highly-rated toxic tort lawyer and Workplace injury attorney reviewing Ashtabula asbestos exposure cases and mesothelioma settlements for plaintiffs and workers nationwide.

Questions about Ashtabula Worksites & Asbestos Exposure

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that was first utilized in the early 1900s for its insulating abilities, fireproof properties, and versatility. It has been estimated that over 30 million tons of asbestos was used in the American economy in industrial yards, homes, schools, shipyards, and other workplaces.

The natural breakdown of asbestos products and subsequent sawing or cutting of the asbestos creates dust and fibers that are inhaled and can lead to mesothelioma and other severe forms of lung cancer.

Why is Asbestos Toxic?

When asbestos breaks down over time or with use, the fibers of the material can become airborne, presenting a risk of inhaling or ingesting the toxin. Asbestos is a cancer-causing agent, and those heavily exposed can develop scarring in the lungs and later develop lug cancer and mesothelioma.

Asbestos was widely used in piping, insulation, electrical components, machine parts, packaging, flooring, ceiling tiles, roofing, and in many building materials.
