Asbestos – Other Sites

Because of its popularity as a building material throughout much of the 20th Century, asbestos has been found in a wide range of structures, from factories and dockyards to offices, apartments, and homes. Exposure to asbestos has been linked to several serious diseases, including mesothelioma and asbestosis, and the diverse range of source sites means that countless people could be at risk.

Locations at Risk

From the 1920s until the 1970s, asbestos was viewed as a “wonder fiber” – a material that could drastically reduce the incidence of fires because of its flame retardant qualities. While asbestos is indeed successful at preventing potential conflagrations, it also poses a serious health risk to those who come into contact with it. Asbestos-related diseases can take decades to develop, but when they do, they are often fatal.

Recent tragedies and court cases have brought to light several locations and organizations particularly associated with asbestos exposure, including:

  • The World Trade Center complex
  • Areas hit by Hurricane Katrina
  • Grand Central Terminal (Grand Central Station)
  • Ford Motor Company
  • Libby, Montana

While it was not until the 1970s that the public at large was aware of the potential dangers of asbestos, many large companies had known for decades that asbestos was linked to a number of serious diseases. These companies may be considered legally liable for illnesses caused by the substance if they were aware of its presence and the dangers it posed.
