Asbestos was used in Ohio and across the United States in a wide range of products for quite some time up until the late 1970s. Several products made with asbestos include different building materials, pipes, car parts, railroad parts and even paints. Unfortunately, it wasn't known until well after its wide use that asbestos exposure can have life-altering effects that may not be felt for several years after the initial contact.
Two women in Ohio recently required medical treatment following a two-vehicle crash. According to police, the driver of a sedan -- a 19-year-old woman -- lost control of her vehicle and struck an oncoming automobile. The passenger in the second vehicle, a 52-year-old woman, suffered personal injury as a result of the crash.
Road safety, along with driver responsibility, is being questioned after several people were injured in a multi-vehicle collision in Ohio. Car accidents like this, one’s that affect multiple victims, are taken very seriously by local law enforcement and city officials. As these incidents can leave victims with a lot of questions, finalizing an investigation is important for their ability to move forward.
Asbestos exposure can create serious and life threatening illness. When it is not properly handled and workers are left unprotected, a company may be held responsible. A victim that has suffered from asbestos exposure in the past may question their legal right to seek financial redress against any party deemed responsible. An Ohio company has recently taken the preliminary steps needed to create a trust for previous and current employees that have claimed personal injury after asbestos exposure.
