Dayton Worksites: Mesothelioma & Lung Cancer Claims

Ohio Asbestos Lawyer

Dayton has been an important center of industry in Ohio for over a hundred years, with major corporations operating factories and plants in the surrounding area.

Dayton has been home to prominent steel plants (forgeries, foundries and mills), paper mills, railroad companies, auto part plants, appliance manufacturers, insulation factories, and drywall companies.

Many of the companies with operations in Dayton had buildings built with toxic asbestos materials, and many of the end products produced in Dayton factories contained asbestos. Any worker exposed to asbestos fibers for even a short duration may risk severe health consequences, including mesothelioma, asbestosis and lung cancer.

Joe Lyon is an experienced Ohio mesothelioma cancer attorney and Dayton Asbestos Lawyer representing toxin-exposed and injured workers in Dayton and throughout Ohio.

Questions about Dayton Worksites & Asbestos Exposure

What is Asbestos?

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.

Why is Asbestos Toxic?

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.

What Materials Contain Asbestos?

Asbestos was widely used in piping, insulation, electrical components, machine parts, packaging, flooring, ceiling tiles, roofing, and in many building materials.

Can I File a Mesothelioma Lawsuit?

If you were exposed to asbestos at your workplace, and have developed cancer or a related illness, you are likely to qualify for compensation.

Why Did Companies Use Asbestos?

What are the Symptoms of Mesothelioma ?

Signs & Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Asbestos fibers cause scarring in the tissue that surround the lungs and other organs. The scarring and internal damage may lay dormant for many years, before tumors form and are discovered.

By the time symptoms appear, mesothelioma cancer or other diseases are most likely in an advanced stage. Symptoms of mesothelioma can be similar to other respiratory illnesses, and will vary depending on the severity of the disease. Symptoms may include:

  • Chest pain
  • Persistent cough
  • Trouble breathing
  • Trouble swallowing
  • Lumps of tissue in the chest and abdomen
  • Stomach pain
  • Swelling of the abdomen
  • Unexplained weight loss & fatigue
