Ohio Asbestos Attorney
Ashtabula Workers: Mesothelioma & Lung Cancer Claims
Ashtabula has a long history of manufacturing and heavy industry. Workers in 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.
