Asbestos is a hazardous product. In Ohio and across the country, victims of exposure as long as 40 years ago continue to face serious health risks. The risks of developing a cancer called mesothelioma -- an asbestos\-related illness -- have been found to keep increasing over passing years. Recent studies concluded that affected workers' chances of developing this disease grow each year, even if their last exposure occurred four decades ago.
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with an asbestos-related illness like asbestosis or mesothelioma, then you would be wise to consider your legal options. Between the cost of medical care and the emotional trauma associated with these conditions, the damages suffered can be massive.
