Asbestos in Demolition Sites

The asbestos attorneys at Williams Hart have been listening to heart-breaking stories regarding the terrible diseases that this substance causes for years. Generally, depending on the actual disease our clients have contracted, their symptoms include the following:

  • Persistent shortness of breath
  • Extreme difficulty breathing
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Chest pain
  • Intense fear

It is for this reason and more that our asbestos attorneys have put together an Asbestos Resource Center, and below is just one of many locations everyone should steer clear of in order to have the best chance of avoiding exposure and the diseases that result from asbestos.

A Location to Avoid – Construction Demolition Sites

Standard codes and regulations were simply not as strict or demanding 50 years ago as they are today. In fact, there was a time when asbestos was not only accepted, but commonly found in buildings due to some of the positive characteristics it presented. Obviously, it was eventually discovered that the benefits of using asbestos were far outweighed by its negative effects, which is why its use has all-but been eliminated.

Tearing down old buildings and replacing them with new ones is a reality of our economy. If you’ve driven by any of these demolition sites, you may have noticed the workers wearing several layers of protective gear, including masks that covered their faces. The reason is because the workers are attempting to avoid inhaling the microscopic asbestos fibers that can penetrate their lungs.

If you have lived near a demolition site and you were potentially exposed to asbestos, you need to seek immediate medical attention. You also need to contact the asbestos lawyers at Williams Hart immediately for a free initial consultation, as you may have a valid claim that needs to be pursued. Contact us today.
