Asbestos Found at Illinois Demolition Site

A building in downtown Champagne was recently found to contain asbestos. The asbestos was found in pipes in the walls and demolition had to come to a halt until a licensed asbestos removal firm could come and remove it. This was a fairly simple process, and allowed demolition to continue a few days after the asbestos was discovered in the walls.

If the asbestos had not been found in time, however, it could have led to exposure. When asbestos becomes airbone, it can be inhaled by the workers who handle it. In addition, the clothes that those workers wear can carry the asbestos home with them, exposing entire families. This exposure can lead to terrible conditions like mesothelioma and asbestosis.

Unfortunately, mesothelioma can take decades to show up after exposure. This makes it very difficult to treat. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, contact the Illinois mesothelioma attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-220-9341.
