Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Clairton, Pennsylvania

Nestled along the Monongahela River, Clairton is a city in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania approximately 20 miles south of Pittsburgh. Clairton came into existence around the turn of the 20th century when the United States Steel Corporation acquired land along the west side of the Monongahela River. The land would become the site for Clairton Works, a prosperous integrated steel mill and the largest coke manufacturing facility in the United States. As Clairton Works expanded, the population of Clairton grew and the community thrived. Clairton, once known as the "Coke Capital of the World", took on a life of its own, including a business district and educational, religious, and cultural facilities. The city peaked in the late 1950s when the population approached 25,000. But since that time, population has steadily declined. Today, Clairton is home to less than 9,000 residents.

With the decline of the steel industry in the 1980s, the City of Clairton was designated a distressed municipality by Pennsylvania's Department of Community Affairs. Clairton is a modern day ghost town. The downtown area is lined with vacant storefronts and bars. Also, abandoned residential areas plague the area. Large portions of the city have descended into poverty and crime. Local groups have tried to encourage recovery, but have been unsuccessful due to lack of funding or interest.

Use of asbestos containing materials was prevalent for years at a number of jobsites in Clairton. Thus, asbestos exposure has been a concern for workers.
