Asbestos Exposure in Columbus, OH

Columbus is the capital city of Ohio. Located on the Scioto and Olentangy Rivers, it is the largest city in Ohio, with a population of just over 787,000. Columbus has a diverse and vibrant economy that encompasses research, manufacturing, healthcare, higher education, retail and more. Among Columbus's major employers are Ohio State University, research foundation Battelle Memorial Institute, Chemical Abstracts Service, Owens Corning Corporation and JP Morgan Chase.

Columbus was officially founded in 1812 as the state capital, chosen for its central location and river access. Columbus was chartered as a town in 1816 and became a city in 1836. With railroad access beginning in 1850, Columbus began to develop as a manufacturing city and a union leader. German immigrants brought their tradition of beer making to Columbus, establishing the L. Hoster Brewing Company, Capitol Breweries, and August Wagner Breweries (Gambrinus Brewing and Bottling Company), among others. The Columbus Buggy Corporation, established in 1875, was foremost of a dozen buggy manufacturers, turning out a buggy every eight minutes at its peak. Both industries faded in Columbus, succumbing to Prohibition and the automobile, respectively, although Anheuser Busch still operates a brewery in Columbus, and a recent resurgence of interest in craft beers and microbreweries has led to preservation efforts in the city's brewery district. Although manufacturing has declined somewhat, Columbus's always diverse economy has allowed it to persevere through a severe flood in 1913 and several periods of recession.

Columbus has a lengthy and active history of industry and construction during a period when asbestos-containing materials were widely used. Workers exposed to asbestos may be at risk for mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. If you or a loved one were diagnosed with mesothelioma in Columbus, you may also benefit from seeking the advice of a mesothelioma lawyer.
