Auto workers at Avon Lake up until the 1970s were regularly exposed to several workplace toxins that included a large amount of asbestos in buildings, factories, work facilities, equipment and work materials.
Avon Lake asbestos exposure cases may have come from a variety of sources, though workplaces in the auto industry and other heavy industries are suspected in mesothelioma and lung cancer cases.
Due to the durable and fire-resistant properties of asbestos fibers, the material was used commonly in many Ohio warehouses and factories well into the 1970s. Workers in many trades were exposed and may have inhaled or ingested the toxins, leading to the development of serious respiratory illnesses in the future.
The latency period of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cancers can be long, and many workers may not have been diagnosed with cancer decades after initial exposure. There is no safe level of asbestos exposure, and even a small amount of the toxin can cause severe reactions and later cause scarring in the lungs, which is a typical symptom of mesothelioma, in addition to the following:

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 lung 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 thought to be the perfect insulating material before research showed it was extremely hazardous to\ the health.
