Jobsites

 

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 have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact our asbestos attorneys to discuss your 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:
