Midwest Rubber plants were part of the industrial explosion that helped Ohio communities generate a great amount of wealth. But that success came at a great cost when it was discovered the rubber plants in Ohio were filled with toxic materials. Not only was asbestos used to construct the facilities but was used in many of the products produced.
As a result, Midwest Rubber workers were faced with a future of toxic exposure and many years later diagnosed with serious illnesses and cancers.
It is now known that working closely with asbestos leads to mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and other serious pulmonary disorders.

According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), dozens of occupations could expose workers to asbestos, many of those in the manufacturing world. In fact, thousands of American workers are still exposed to asbestos each year.
Because of the long latency period (20-50 years) after being first exposed to asbestos, many rubber workers are just now learning of the damage done and can still seek compensation for their losses.
The Lyon Firm aggressively, professionally, and passionately advocates for injured individuals and families against companies due to asbestos exposure.
