Reviewing Ohio Mesothelioma & Lung Cancer Claims

Ohio Asbestos Attorney

investigating cancer claims following Cincinnati asbestos exposure

The majority of employees at rubber plants in Ohio, including Cincinnati Rubber were are at high risk of developing occupational cancers as a result of continual toxic exposure. Cincinnati Rubber Manufacturing plants may have presented health risks that the workers were not aware of until almost 1980. 

Asbestos was used as a building insulator because it was cheap and durable and heat resistant. Now it is common knowledge that the toxin directly leads to aggressive forms of lung cancer, asbestosis and other serious forms of cancer. 

Joe Lyon is a highly-rated Ohio asbestos lawyer currently representing workers nationwide in mesothelioma and lung cancer asbestos claims. The Lyon Firm settles your claims quickly and painlessly, and works on a contingency fee basis. 

Which Rubber Products Contained Asbestos?

Rubber companies in northeast Ohio are best known for producing car and truck tires but they also manufactured gaskets and seals. Asbestos gaskets were used to seal pipes, pumps, and industrial machinery. Some rubber manufacturing producers mixed asbestos in with rubber sheets that were used for gaskets, seals and various industrial insulations.

Former Cincinnati Rubber workers may still be at risk because the asbestos fibers may have embedded in the lung tissue and only now caused cancer decades later.

Symptoms of Asbestos-Related Lung Diseases

Asbestosis and mesothelioma can have a long latency period, meaning that former Cincinnati Rubber workers could have been exposed to toxins back in 1970 and only now be diagnosed with cancer. Symptoms of lung cancer include:

• Chest pain
• Persistent cough
• Fatigue
• Trouble swallowing
• Swelling of the abdomen
• Fever
• Trouble Breathing

Questions about Cincinnati Rubber & Asbestos Exposure

What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a mineral first utilized by heavy industry in the early 20th century for its insulating abilities, fireproof properties, and durability. Millions of tons of asbestos was used in rubber plants, industrial yards, homes, schools, shipyards, Navy bases, hospitals and other workplaces.

What Products Contained Asbestos?

In a rubber plant, workers may have actually handled asbestos products or simply been working in a facility that was filled with construction materials that broke down over time and released toxic fibers into the air to be ingested and inhaled. 

Is Asbestos Always Toxic?

Asbestos still exists in many buildings and it is usually safe unless it gets exposed and the fibers fill the air. When asbestos breaks down and is airborne, workers are then inhaling or ingesting the toxin. Even a short duration of exposure can be enough to cause cancer. 

Is it hard to win an asbestos cancer case?

Our legal team has settled dozens of mesothelioma and lung cancer cases after victims of past workplace exposure fall ill. Compensation is likely for victims who worked in heavy industry and later get diagnosed with certain forms of lung cancer.
