Well into the 1970s, many industrial workplaces and companies in Ohio were full of asbestos materials. As such, Alliance Industrial workers regularly handled toxic materials, placing them at risk of developing mesothelioma, lung cancer, pulmonary fibrosis, and other occupational lung diseases.
Asbestos was so widely used in many industries because the material was cheap, durable and fire resistant. But asbestos poses severe health risks—a fact established now by international health agencies, and something many companies may have known well before the EPA placed restrictions on workplace and commercial asbestos use.
Alliance Industrial Workers who have suffered lung disease and asbestos-related cancers may have a claim against asbestos manufactures and possibly their former employers for failing to protect employees and failing to warn workers of the serious toxic risks of certain tasks and occupations.

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.
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.
If you were exposed to asbestos at your workplace, and have developed cancer or a related illness, you are likely to qualify for compensation.
Asbestos was cheap, durable, fire-resistant and light, and was though to be the perfect insulating material before research showed it was extremely hazardous tot he health.
The success rates of settlements regarding asbestos exposure injury are quite high. It may be necessary to prove that occupational exposure is the primary cause of lung cancer or mesothelioma, though this is the job of The Lyon Firm, and we have experience in reaching large mesothelioma settlements.
