There is no question as to the serious and devastating health effects that asbestos can wreak on people’s health. Linked to a number of fatal cancers and diseases, the toxic substance should only be handled when necessary and under the guidance and protection of all possible safety features. Sadly, what should happen is not necessarily what does happen, and demonstrating just where and when the wrongful exposure occurred can be a trying ordeal. We have helped many asbestos exposure victims in Ohio successfully prove the source of their exposure while helping them seek compensation for resulting injuries.
Mesothelioma, esophageal cancer, colon cancer and lung cancer are all known and understood to be caused by inhaling asbestos particles. However, asbestos exposure can take years, even decades, to manifest into full-blown cancer. When it becomes necessary to recover damages in order to receive necessary treatment or to handle long-lasting pain and suffering, proving just where that exposure occurred along the line requires the right help and guidance.
In general, barring any prior knowledge of how dangerous asbestos is, most employers from previous decades are not on the hook for damages. Manufacturers and distributors, though, are another story. In any given workplace, exposure to asbestos can come from a variety of sources, including drywall, insulation, pipe covering and even auto parts. We have a great deal of experience and success when it comes to not only identifying the exact source of the exposure, but also the manufacturer responsible for producing the toxic substance.
It is heartbreaking to see hardworking men and women in Ohio suffer from the long-term effects of asbestos exposure. Our firm has remained dedicated to the residents of this state by guiding men and women suffering from mesothelioma or other asbestos-related cancers through the process of identifying the source and seeking related compensation. We take great joy in the success of our clients who can benefit from the relief of just legal recourse.
