Ohio Mesothelioma

Ohio Asbestos Lawyer

At The Throneberry Law Group, we focus on providing mesothelioma victims with the engaged and experienced legal representation that they deserve. Behind our legal strategy is a principal attorney who understands just how devastating a mesothelioma diagnosis can be after losing his own father-in-law to the devastating condition.

Some of the mesothelioma victims in Ohio whom we have helped obtain compensation live in Akron, Canton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, Dayton, Toledo, and Marysville.

The state of Ohio has a long history of asbestos use across many industries. The Centers for Disease Control report that 1,939 people in Ohio died from mesothelioma between 1999 and 2015. Some of the workers in Ohio who are most at risk of being harmed by asbestos exposure include workers employed in the steel, oil refinery, and power plant industries.

Ohio Metalworkers and Asbestos Exposure

The city of Cleveland was a leader in the steel industry for many years. Cleveland’s steel mills utilized asbestos for many purposed due to the material’s heat and fire-resistant qualities. Some of the metalworks in Ohio where workers were exposed to asbestos include:

  • A.K. Steel Holding Corporation
  • Cold Metal Products
  • LTV Steel
  • Marion Steel Company
  • McDonald Steel Company

Other Ohio Companies Where Asbestos Exposure Occurred

Between 1948 and 1993, vermiculite containing asbestos was shipped from Montana to Ohio. This vermiculite in turn reached various locations throughout Ohio including Cleveland, North Bloomfield, Warren, Dayton, Cincinnati, Marysville, and Port Clinton.
