Ohio Mesothelioma and lung cancer attorney investigating workplace toxic exposure and Ashtabula asbestos exposure for injured Ohio workers


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.
