Dispatch Printing Co.

Workers exposed to asbestos

Also known as Columbus Dispatch, the company was a printing press that made use of asbestos during the last century. Dispatch Printing Co. was founded in 1871 and was located in Columbus, Ohio. Because the machinery and equipment they employed were manufactured with asbestos components, heavy equipment operators were the occupational group with the heaviest asbestos exposure at this company, as they would disturb asbestos components on a regular basis, a process that would release millions of toxic fibers in the air. As a consequence, workers would inhale and ingest asbestos fibers on a regular basis, which now increases their risk of developing a serious disease to a great extent. If you came to struggle with a disease as a result of occupational asbestos exposure after working at Dispatch Printing Co. we strongly encourage you to contact our law firm, as our main area of practice is toxic exposure and our lawyers will help you recover the financial compensation you deserve for your injury.

Asbestos Screening

Dispatch Printing Co. employees exposed to asbestos

While heavy equipment operators were the most heavily exposed to asbestos at this company, everyone who worked at Dispatch Printing Co. inhaled and ingested toxic fibers, as the poor ventilation of the facility only perpetuated asbestos exposure. Once released in the air by heavy equipment operators, asbestos fibers would linger for a long period of time, which greatly endangered the health of all employees. In the regrettable event that you developed a disease as a result of workplace asbestos exposure, we are here to help you recover the compensation you deserve. After a thorough discussion with our attorneys, during which you will have to describe the circumstances of your exposure, they will determine whether you are eligible for compensation. If you are, they will promptly begin preparing your claim for submission with the company at fault. The only documents you will have to send your lawyer are your employment and medical records, which will be used as proof to support your claim. Eventually, you will receive the maximum compensation available for your diagnosis from Dispatch Printing Co. if you decide to work with our skillful legal team. However, it is important to keep in mind that asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 3 years from the moment of diagnosis in most states, which should prompt you to take legal action as soon as possible.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Dispatch Printing Co. workers


If you lived under the same roof as a family member who was working as a heavy equipment operator at Dispatch Printing Co. during the last century, you were most likely exposed to asbestos as well, since employees would often bring home toxic dust on their clothes, skin and hair. Secondary asbestos exposure occurs when a person inhales or ingests asbestos fibers from indirect sources. While the wives of Dispatch Printing Co. employees would breathe in and swallow asbestos fibers when laundering their work clothes, their children would come in contact with the dangerous mineral when greeting their father upon returning home from the job. If you struggle with a disease you believe is the result of secondary asbestos exposure, please contact our law firm for a free of charge case review. After a thorough discussion, our attorneys will be able to tell you with certainty whether you qualify for compensation. If you do, your involvement in the legal process will be minimal, as you will only have to provide your lawyer with the employment records of your family member and with your medical records, documents that will stand as evidence to support your claim. In the end, several months to one year following claim submission, you will recover the maximum compensation you are entitled to for your diagnosis from the responsible company.

Legal assistance in wrongful death asbestos exposure cases for family members

It is not uncommon for a victim of workplace asbestos exposure to refuse to take legal action during their lifetime, usually out of fear of a long and complicated process. While the legal process is very complex, it will require minimal involvement on your part if you lost a family member to a disease caused by occupational asbestos exposure and want to recover compensation on their behalf. The only documents we will need from you before starting to prepare your wrongful death claim for submission are the employment and medical records of your deceased loved one, as well as their death certificate, which must clearly state that their life was claimed by a disease stemming from asbestos exposure. The rest of the necessary paperwork will be efficiently handled by our resourceful legal team. You will eventually receive the maximum compensation available on behalf of your lost family member if you decide to work with our law firm. It is important to keep in mind, however, that wrongful death asbestos exposure cases have a statute of limitations of 2 years from the moment of death in the majority of states, which should make taking legal action a priority for you.
