Asbestos Exposure in Ohio

SteelMillOhio is unfortunately in the top ten in the US for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma deaths, and is still a major threat for residents and workers. Individuals working in factories or with high-heat machinery over a long period of time have a higher risk for asbestos disease.

Ohio is the nation’s largest producers of rubber, plastics, metal products and appliances. Each of these manufacturing processes requires a significant amount of insulation and fireproofing, which contained asbestos.

Statistics for Mesothelioma Cases in Ohio

Ohio ranks 6th in the US for asbestos-related deaths. There have been 1,990 deaths from mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer between 1999 – 2013.

Filing an asbestos claim if you live in Ohio

You do not have to file your claim in the state in which you live. It’s far more important to contact an attorney with a strong history of experience specifically in asbestos cases, than it is to select one who happens to be in your area of Ohio. The most successful attorneys in your area may have never handled an asbestos case.

SWMW attorneys dedicate the overwhelming majority of their time and effort prosecuting mesothelioma claims, so we know which states and jurisdictions are going to provide the best outcome for your case and can get your case settled faster. We handle asbestos cases all across the USA, so we know how to file, where to file, and what to do to get you the compensation you deserve.

If you may have lived or worked in another state, select it here to learn about specific asbestos exposure in that state.
