Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in Ohio is important because it means we are familiar with Ohio job sites where asbestos exposure occurred.

Asbestos is a deadly mineral that has been used in thousands of products in multiple industries including manufacturing, steel working, shipbuilding and more. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested they increase a person’s risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma.

Our experienced attorneys have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures and they are ready to help you and your family as well.


Over the years, a number of building and work sites in Ohio have been tied to asbestos exposure. The following is a partial list of some of those sites that have been linked. Please note this is not a complete list, and it does not necessarily reflect current conditions.

Mary Jane – Peritoneal Mesothelioma

For a year, Mary Jane struggled to understand her symptoms of a bloating abdomen and episodes of profuse sweating. Then, during a gall bladder surgery, the doctors found out she had mesothelioma.

When she was first diagnosed, and even when she started treating her disease, filing a mesothelioma lawsuit against asbestos companies was the last thing on Mary Jane’s mind. Yet, she soon learned why fighting for compensation was important and became a client of Simmons Hanly Conroy.

“The firm makes you feel like you’re somebody, and like you do matter. Sometimes you get the wrong interpretation of lawyers and attorneys – they’re good people. They’re humans too, they’re just trying to help. They become good friends, even family.”
