Attorneys Serving Ohio Mesothelioma Victims

Lawyers Obtaining Justice for Victims of Asbestos Exposure in Ohio

Although asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral, its use in everything ranging from commercial construction to all insulating material due to its durable, fire resistant nature, resulted in toxic, carcinogenic exposure to many U.S. citizens, most notably causing mesothelioma. Many victims of asbestos exposure have been linked to the military, where they were routinely exposed to asbestos, as well as those linked to shipyards, construction, plumbing, and electrician work. Its use greatly increased during World War II, and unfortunately, the U.S. is one of the countries that have not yet completely banned its use. Not only has it been used in roofing and insulation, but also in cement, soundproofing, brake pads, paints and adhesives, and other products.

If you’ve been the victim of asbestos exposure, we’re here to help. The Throneberry Law Group is a law practice dedicated to the legal representation of those who have contracted mesothelioma as a result of exposure to asbestos, as well as other asbestos-related diseases, such as respiratory illness, lung cancer, and maladies.

Its Effects

Asbestos typically becomes deadly when its fibers or dust are inhaled or unintentionally consumed, eventually causing asbestosis or mesothelioma, depending upon the level of exposure and duration. Symptoms can take years to develop—sometimes 10 to 50 years—and are caused by the small fibers penetrating into the lungs and settling around them, ultimately leading to inflammation and cancer.

Symptoms

· Coughing;
· Shortness of breath;
· Pain in the chest;
· Inflammation;
· Weight loss and/or loss of appetite; and
· Fatigue.

While chest x-rays are typically able to detect respiratory illnesses, a lung biopsy is the only verified way to confirm a mesothelioma diagnosis.
