Wheeling Asbestos Mesothelioma Lawyers
Wheeling, in Ohio County, West Virginia, is nestled along the Ohio River and situated in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. The city was the first state capital of West Virginia and became a manufacturing center in the late 19th century due to being located near many major transportation routes.
Today approximately 30,000 people call Wheeling home and nearly 150,000 reside in the metropolitan area. While the city may have originally focused on manufacturing, the majority of industries in the area now focus on education, healthcare, law and legal services, and energy.
Asbestos Exposure and Veterans
As of the 2010 census, the median age of those residing in Wheeling was 45.2 years old with over 50% of the city’s population being 45 years of age or older. Of the entire West Virginia population, over 173,000 residents are veterans who served in the Navy, the Army, the Marines, as Coast Guards, and in the Air Force.
Our veterans have played a significant role in building our country into the great nation it is today, but many are paying the ultimate price. Almost all branches of military used asbestos from the early 1900s up to the 1970s which has put many veterans at risk for asbestos-related diseases including mesothelioma. In fact, veterans currently account for almost one third of all mesothelioma cases in the United States.
Secondary Asbestos Exposure Affecting Loved Ones
Veterans are not the only ones who are at a greater risk of developing asbestos-related diseases and health complications. During the years when asbestos use was at its peak, many service members would bring home deadly asbestos fibers on their work clothing, unintentionally exposing their children and spouses to this toxic material.
