Representing Workers in Ironton Asbestos Exposure Mesothelioma & Lung Cancer Claims

Several manufacturers, steel plants, cement companies and other industrial employers used asbestos materials at the workplace and put Ironton workers at risk of developing related illnesses like lung cancer, asbestosis, and mesothelioma.

The use of asbestos was common for decades before the EPA and WHO and other health organizations warned employees and companies of the serious health impact of asbestos exposure. Asbestos was used in insulation, boilers, cement, piping and many other applications because of its durability and fire resistant capabilities.

Thousands of former Ironton workers and users Ironton made products were injured and have fallen ill with mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.

Joe Lyon is a highly-rated Ohio mesothelioma attorney and Ironton Asbestos Exposure lawyer representing plaintiffs nationwide in a wide variety of workplace toxic tort and mesothelioma claims.

Signs & Symptoms of Mesothelioma

Ironton Employees who develop lung cancer or mesothelioma may show no signs of illness for decades after initial exposure. But by the time symptoms present, mesothelioma has likely reached an advanced and terminal stage.

  • Pain in the chest
  • Persistent cough
  • Trouble breathing
  • Lumps of tissue on chest and abdomen
  • Weight Loss
  • Stomach pain
