A large fine has been issued to Total Dismantling and Carting Services, Inc., and its successor, The Total Group, Inc., for disregarding asbestos regulations in the sate
The company has repeatedly ignored its duty to notify the Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) regarding the removal of asbestos from a number of locations throughout Eastern Massachusetts.
This is a clear violation of the Massachusetts State Clean Air Act which requires entities to give this notice before removing or handling asbestos.
These laws are necessary in order to ensure that removal and handling of asbestos is done correctly. When handled incorrectly, individuals can be exposed to asbestos, which can result in devastating health consequences, including the deadly cancer mesothelioma.
If you or someone you know has been wrongly exposed to asbestos and has suffered as a result, contact the mesothelioma lawsuit attorneys of Williams Kherkher for the experienced and aggressive representation you need.
