Asbestos and Law Enforcement Officers

In their everyday duties to serve and protect their community, police officers often go into dangerous situations without fully realizing the harm they could be doing to their bodies. In particular, many police officers respond as quickly as possible to the scene of an emergency, helping other emergency workers keep order and providing assistance to any injured individuals. However, this selflessness can easily result in law enforcement officers being exposed to asbestos.

To discuss your legal options if you have suffered due to asbestos exposure, contact the mesothelioma lawyers of Williams Hart at 800-781-3955 today.

Asbestos in Emergency Situations

Police officers often encounter asbestos when they arrive on the scene of an incident with nothing to protect them from environmental hazards. Although firefighters may regularly use breathing devices, police often have minimal protection against any asbestos fibers that may be in the air. The following situations may have a high asbestos threat:

  • Building and car fires
  • Vehicle collisions
  • Incidents at old or derelict locations
  • Buildings destroyed by natural disasters

Asbestos, when released into the air, floats around as small fibers. Eventually, these collect in a person’s lungs. This can lead to the development of a type of cancer known as mesothelioma. This cancer is both difficult to detect and difficult to treat, as it may develop for decades without showing any symptoms.
