Representing Canton Steel Foundry Workers with Mesothelioma & Asbestos Cancer Claims

Workers at Canton Steel Foundry and other steel plants in Northeast Ohio were commonly exposed to asbestos and other toxins, and may later develop lung diseases, including mesothelioma cancer.

Many former employees at industrial facilities in Ohio and around the Midwest have been diagnosed with occupational cancers, and other serious diseases. This happened because asbestos  was so widely used in construction materials and the dust turned out to be extremely carcinogenic. As such,  almost any worker in steel plants could be at risk of developing asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma.

Workers at Canton factories have been involved in asbestos lawsuits and have settled for substantial sums. 

Asbestos was not always known to be so hazardous to the health, but now the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) all consider asbestos to be a direct source of cancer risk.
