Asbestos Exposure in Waukegan, IL

The City of Waukegan is the county seat of Lake County, Illinois. Located on the western shore of Lake Michigan, Waukegan has a current population of just over 89,000. Top employers in Waukegan include Lake County, Cardinal Health and manufacturer Coleman Cable.

Initially known as "Little Fort," the village became the county seat in 1841, and was incorporated as Waukegan in 1849. Agriculture and shipping formed Waukegan's early economic base, with Lake Michigan providing easy access to Chicago. After the arrival of the railroad in 1855, Waukegan also developed as a manufacturing center, becoming a city in 1859. Beer brewing, meat packing and shipbuilding were among the early manufacturing efforts. In the 20th century, Waukegan became more heavily industrialized. The Johns-Manville Company produced insulation and construction materials, including asbestos-cement pipe, at their lakefront plant from 1918 until about 1985. Outboard Marine Company (later OMC) was founded in 1929 by the inventor of Evinrude boat motors. OMC declared bankruptcy in 2000. The Wilder Tanning Company is notable for actively recruiting African-American workers for a new factory which they built in 1917. Other companies active in Waukegan during the 20th century include Washburn and Moen Wire Mill, U.S. Starch Works, Abbott Laboratories and Anchor Glass.

Waukegan's lengthy history of industry and manufacturing, particularly of asbestos insulation products, puts it in a high risk category for asbestos exposure. Workers exposed to asbestos may be at risk for asbestos-related diseases. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Waukegan, you may benefit from contacting Dr. Hedy Lee Kindler. Additionally, you should know that mesothelioma law firms represent people from Waukegan who were exposed to asbestos.
