9/11 Twin Towers Asbestos Attorneys

Although this section of our asbestos and mesothelioma Web site so far has covered general locations to avoid and how to avoid them, there is one central and particular location in the United States that warrants attention here, as the effects of the original exposure to this situation are just now starting to become prevalent, and the asbestos lawyers at Williams Hart feel that you should know about it.

September 11, 2001 is a day that will be forever infamous in our country’s history. It was one of those tragic events when everyone remembers what he or she was doing at the time the news of the attack on our country hit the airwaves. Thousands of innocent people died, and the symbolic effect on our collective consciousness may never completely dissipate.

Unfortunately, there are negative aspects of this cowardly terrorist attack that are continuing to haunt us to this day. When the twin towers came down, they crashed in a way that an incredibly huge cloud of dust and waste was launched into the air. The cloud could be seen for miles, and potentially millions of people inhaled at least a small amount of that cloud. It was this cloud that’s starting to get the attention of asbestos lawyers around the country.

The World Trade Center was built decades ago, at a time when asbestos was not known for its dangerous qualities. As a result, when the buildings collapsed, the cloud that resulted contained asbestos fibers along with millions of other chemicals. People who inhaled a high amount of these chemicals are beginning to get sick, and medical experts fear that there will be a mesothelioma outbreak as a result of exposure to this cloud. That would perhaps be the most damaging effect of this attack in the long term, depending on how many people get sick as a result of this exposure.
