Steps to Take if You Just Found Out Asbestos is in Your Home

Many people have heard of the dangers of asbestos, but not many know what to do if they suddenly find out that asbestos is in their home. Exposure to broken asbestos fibers can cause serious lung conditions, like mesothelioma, lung scarring, and asbestosis, so if you learn that asbestos is in your home, it’s important that you take action as soon as possible to avoid being exposed to this dangerous material.

If you or someone you love has been exposed to asbestos because you were not informed of its presence in your home by its former owner or by your landlord, contact an asbestos attorney with Williams Hart today by calling 800-781-3955 to discuss your legal and medical options.

What to Do Right Now

If you suddenly find out that asbestos is in your home, it’s important not to panic – there are ways to prevent exposure to broken fibers. However, if you suspect that you might have already been exposed to broken fibers, it’s important to take quick action. You should:

  • Contact your local municipality, who is responsible for removing asbestos
  • Contact a mesothelioma attorney, who can discuss your options for legal recourse
  • Contact a mesothelioma resource center, which can illuminate your risks and help you find medical treatment
  • Evaluate any past exposure opportunities, and decide if your family has been put at risk

Taking these steps involves quick action on your part, but as you can see, there are resources out there to help those who think they have been exposed to asbestos.
