Asbestos Exposure and Mesothelioma in Ohio

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.

The difficult part is asbestos fibers are often microscopic and many workers may not know how they were exposed. If you are unsure how your asbestos exposure occurred, that does not necessarily mean you can’t file a mesothelioma lawsuit. Our experienced mesothelioma attorneys in Ohio have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures, and they are ready to help you and your family as well.

For a year, Mary Jane Williams struggled to understand her symptoms of a bloating abdomen and episodes of profuse sweating. Then, during a gallbladder 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.

Mesothelioma Warrior Bruce’s Story

Before becoming a beloved high school English teacher, Ohio native Bruce Waite worked as a construction worker and a gas station attendant. At both jobs he came into contact with asbestos-containing products, having never been warned about the dangers of asbestos exposure.

In 2002, after experiencing breathing trouble while running, Bruce was diagnosed with mesothelioma. With his wife Nancy and his daughter Jill by his side, Bruce continued to run every day, as he had for over 30 years. He also fought back against mesothelioma — and the companies responsible for his illness — by working with Simmons Hanly Conroy to file a mesothelioma lawsuit.

Miles for Meso races have been held across the country, including at the Bruce A. Waite 5K Run/Walk in Ontario, Ohio.

“Years have passed since Dad died, and yet the staff at Simmons Hanly Conroy continues to be family through all the support they offered when this broken daughter decided to honor her father, and others, by raising money for mesothelioma research with Miles for Meso,” said Jill Waite, a Simmons Hanly Conroy client and the daughter of mesothelioma warrior Bruce Waite. “Each mile is love that we share.”

Together, Miles for Meso races across the country have raised over $890,000 for mesothelioma research and advocacy. Simmons Hanly Conroy continues to be a national sponsor of the event.
