Asbestos Exposure in Pittsburgh, PA

Pittsburgh is the second-largest city in Pennsylvania, and the 22nd-largest urban area in the United States. It is the county seat of Allegheny County situated on the Allegheny Plateau, where the confluence of the Allegheny River from the northeast and Monongahela River from the southeast form the Ohio River. The Downtown area between the rivers, known as the Golden Triangle, is the city's central business district. Home to more than 305,704, Pittsburgh is known for its many bridges and former steel manufacturing base which earned it the nicknames, "The City of Bridges" and "The Steel City". In 2010, Forbes listed Pittsburgh as the most livable city in the United States, and the 7th best place to raise a family.

Historically, Pittsburgh is known for its steel industry, which fueled the cities growth and economy until its collapse around the late 1970s. Pittsburgh faced an economic crisis in the 1980s, losing industry giants like Gulf Oil and Westinghouse. However, the city has since redeveloped vacant industrial sites with new housing, shopping and offices. In recent years, Pittsburgh has grown its economic base to include technology, retail, finance, education, and medicine. Some of the larger employers in Pittsburgh include the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, with 48,000 employees; and the University of Pittsburgh, with 10,700 employees. Pittsburgh still maintains its status as a corporate headquarters city, with eight Fortune 500 companies like United States Steel and H.J. Heinz Company. Pittsburgh is in a tie for the eighth-most Fortune 500 headquarters in the nation.

Pittsburgh's ongoing history of industry, construction and renovation increases the risk for asbestos exposure. Workers and others exposed to asbestos may develop mesothelioma, an asbestos-related disease. If you were exposed to asbestos in Pittsburgh and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should also consider contacting an asbestos law firm.
