EPA fines developer $1.6 for asbestos violations

The Environmental Protection Agency has recently fined a developer after he hired an unlicensed contractor to demolish a building on a sawmill property. The unlicensed contractor allegedly spent eight months tearing, chipping, and crushing asbestos-containing materials.

The improper demolition released asbestos particles into the air near a residential neighborhood, prompting the EPA to deem the area a Superfund site. The government agency spent nearly $1.6 million cleaning up the asbestos.

The developer entered a plea deal and was ordered to pay restitution for the cleanup. He was also placed on probation for three years and must complete 300 hours of community service as a part of his sentence.

If you have been exposed to asbestos, you need representation on your side that is committed to fighting for the justice that you and your family deserve. Contact the mesothelioma lawsuit lawyers of Williams Hart today to discuss the best options in your case.
