Asbestosis

Perhaps no substance has been a greater threat to Ohio workers than asbestos.  Over the last several decades, employees have suffered a litany of diseases and conditions caused by on-the-job asbestos exposure.  When these occupational diseases occur, employees and their families can face exorbitant medical bills, permanent disabilities, and even loss of life.

If occupational exposure to asbestos caused you or your loved one to develop a medical condition, Lowe Eklund Wakefield Co., LPA’s workers’ compensation attorneys want to help you.  Many diseases and illnesses linked to asbestos qualify as occupational diseases under Ohio workers’ compensation laws.  Our legal team can help you and your family claim the benefits to which you are entitled so that you can focus on your health.

Contact us to discuss your injuries and potential claims if you or your loved one suffer from any asbestos exposure injuries or illnesses, including:

  • Mesothelioma
  • Lung Cancer
  • Laryngeal Cancer
  • Asbestosis
  • Ovarian or Testicular Cancer
  • Excess Liquid Around the Lungs (Pleural Effusion)
  • Lung Plaque

Employees at Risk of Asbestos-Related Occupational Diseases

Certain professions have a historical or inherent risk of asbestos exposure and related illnesses.  Asbestos-related occupational diseases are most common among those employed in:

  • Chemical Plants
  • Railyards and Shipyards
  • Metal Works
  • Power Plants
  • Military or Quasi-Military Facilities

While certain types of employment may carry an increase risk of asbestos exposure, work-related exposure can occur in many other professions.  If you experienced occupational exposure to asbestos and are experiencing symptoms consistent with asbestos-related illnesses, consult a physician immediately.

Workers harmed by asbestos exposure may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits under Ohio law.  If you or your loved one suffered injury or illness following occupational exposure to asbestos, act now.
