Hilton Davis Chemical Plant Workers at Increased Risk for Mesothelioma & Asbestos Cancer

Hilton Davis Chemical plant workers in Cincinnati may have faced daily health hazards as they worked in facilities lined with asbestos and other toxins. Asbestos was used to insulate high-temperature equipment and surrounding areas to guard against fires and explosions. But such measures had other unintended consequences like occupational lung disease and cancers specifically linked to asbestos like mesothelioma.

Chemical plants and other worksites built before the 1980s used asbestos in roofing, flooring, adhesives, paneling, machinery and boiler insulation. Any workers who handled this material or worked in the vicinity may have inhaled or ingested it without even knowing it. Prolonged exposure to asbestos, or even a short exposure, can later lead to asbestosis, a condition directly caused by the toxin.

Our legal team handles each asbestos cancer claim quickly and confidentially. Your settlement depends on your work history and specific illness. Contact our toxic exposure lawyers for an immediate consultation.

Hilton Davis Chemical Asbestos Exposure Cases

Many positions and tasks performed at the Cincinnati Hilton Davis chemical plant could have put you at risk of toxic exposure. Jobs like pipefitting and machine maintenance typically were the hardest hit as they were working closely with toxic materials on a daily basis. It is safe to say that the longer the asbestos exposure, the higher the risk is to developing a related cancer. 

Chemical plants were known in the asbestos era (50-70 years ago) to contain large amounts of toxic material. Those materials could have been ingested or inhaled and may have been lodged in the lung tissue until it develops into a cancer or a related disease like the following:

  • Mesothelioma
  • Lung Cancer
  • Asbestosis
  • Colorectal Cancer
  • Esophageal Cancer
  • Pulmonary Fibrosis
