Was I Exposed To Asbestos at Airco?
The normal breakdown of asbestos materials results in dust and fibers that are readily inhaled and ingested by workers. Such exposure has led to mesothelioma and other forms of lung cancer.
Each year hundreds of people are diagnosed with asbestos-related illnesses due to past occupational exposure. The huge majority of former workers who develop certain types of lung cancer and mesothelioma worked in an environment where asbestos was present. Many Ohio Airco plants may have been filled with toxic materials, and employers may have failed to warn of the serious health risks of the job. Examples of related health risks include:
- Mesothelioma Cancer
- Lung Cancer
- Esophageal Cancer
- Colorectal Cancer
- Pulmonary Fibrosis
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) are clear on the health risks now, but that was not always the case. The liability of such cases are far-reaching. Call Attorney Joe Lyon for a free consultation on Airco asbestos exposure, treatment and compensation.
Common Causes of Asbestos Illness
Most mesothelioma cases in America are the result of exposures to asbestos materials decades prior at various worksites. Asbestos and other toxins were commonly found in factories, warehouses, steel mills, shipyards, military bases and even homes built before the 1980s.
