Be Careful Around the Dust from the 35W Bridge

Although, to our knowledge, no news story has yet been published regarding the 35W bridge in Minnesota and the potential for asbestos to be lurking in the dust clouds, we need to look past the surface level of this tragic event to make some recommendations for those who will be in the area anytime soon.

As we saw after the disastrous events of 9/11, asbestos was in the air surrounding Ground Zero for quite awhile after the towers came down, as those buildings were raised in a time when asbestos was not frowned upon as a substance. As a result, many people inhaled asbestos, and we all know what the result of that inhalation can be.

It concerned us to year of yesterday’s bridge collapse for several reasons, first and foremost the health and safety of those involved and the families of those who were lost and injured. However, the news of huge clouds of dust prompted us to find out that the 35W bridge was built in the 1960’s, and while we have no idea if asbestos was used in its construction, it’s best to err on the side of caution and either stay away until the dust has cleared or to protect yourself if you’re in the area.

If you have been exposed to asbestos, you need to take action. Speak with an attorney that is familiar with this area of law. Williams Kherkher has mesothelioma attorneys available for a free consultation. Contact one by calling (866) 950-9000.
