Levy Konigsberg Investigating Mesothelioma Cases Across Ohio

Levy Konigsberg is actively investigating potential claims from victims and families who suffered losses due to mesothelioma and other health conditions caused by exposure to asbestos.

This includes exposure in a variety of industrial and construction occupations common in Ohio. For example, our firm secured a settlement in excess of $1 million dollars for a Columbiana County, Ohio, resident who worked as a teenager in the 1960’s as a bricklayer’s helper at a Salem jobsite and, as a result, developed mesothelioma, an aggressive terminal cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Our investigation into the asbestos products used at the facility and the dust levels suffered by the workers there led to a successful claim not only against those companies that designed, manufactured, and sold asbestos materials to the jobsite, but also against the owner of the facility for allowing such dangerous asbestos dust levels to occur. LK asbestos attorneys served as lead counsel in the case.

Each year, men and women are diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease because of their exposure to asbestos products at Ohio jobsites, including manufacturing facilities, chemical plants and steel mills. Sadly, their diseases could have been prevented if the companies profiting from the sale and/or use of asbestos products shared with them the known hazards of working with asbestos.

Levy Konigsberg is currently investigating asbestos cases across Ohio, from Toledo, Sandusky, and Cleveland in the north, to Youngstown in the east, to Circleville and Cincinnati in the south, and Defiance in the west.

Did You Work at an Ohio Jobsite with Known Asbestos Contamination?

Ohio’s cities, from Akron to Youngstown, celebrated a diverse history of heavy industry and construction. As a result, those cities were also home to many of the state’s plants and facilities which manufactured, processed, and used asbestos and asbestos products.

Hundreds of jobsites in Ohio cities such as Cleveland, Cincinnati, Akron, and Toledo have exposed thousands of workers to the hazards of asbestos. If you worked at an Ohio jobsite and were diagnosed with mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease, our award-winning attorneys at Levy Konigsberg are available to discuss your rights and legal options.

For your reference, we list below just a few of the jobsites around Ohio’s largest cities where asbestos may have been present:

Levy Konigsberg has represented mesothelioma victims who worked at several of the above Ohio jobsites, as well as family members of workers. There are hundreds more jobsites in Ohio where workers and their families were needlessly exposed to the dangers of asbestos dust.

Victims of an asbestos-related disease, such as mesothelioma, can rely on our firm’s extensive experience in asbestos litigation.

ATTENTION: Mesothelioma has no known cure and often causes severe pain, suffering, and other types of damage, such as loss of consortium, and loss of income. Additionally, due to the exceedingly high cost of mesothelioma treatments, many families exhaust savings and accumulate financial debt to pay for the medical expenses of their family member. Under the law of most states, pain and suffering from mesothelioma may be compensated through the award of money damages, usually obtained with the help of experienced mesothelioma attorneys. In some states other types of damages may also be recovered. Asbestos litigation affords mesothelioma victims the opportunity to receive financial compensation and hold accountable the companies that caused their asbestos exposure.

How Our Ohio Mesothelioma Lawyers Can Help

IMPORTANT: If you or your family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should get in touch with a mesothelioma lawyer as early as possible to determine if you have a mesothelioma case and to:

  • Preserve your rights to bring a legal action against the responsible parties within the limited time frame allowed by law, known as statute of limitations;
  • Pursue maximum compensation in your case by working to:
    • Preserve evidence and establish facts of asbestos exposure while the claimant is still alive and able to provide information;
    • File and resolve a lawsuit against the responsible parties before they file for bankruptcy or, if they already have, to obtain compensation before their bankruptcy trust funds run out of money;
  • Expedite your case, as courts tend to give higher priority to mesothelioma lawsuits where the claimant is still alive.

Find out whether you have a case by speaking to one of our experienced Ohio asbestos exposure attorneys during a FREE and confidential consultation. We have offices located in New York, New Jersey, California, Georgia, Washington, and Maryland.
