Asbestos in Your Home

When the asbestos lawyers at Williams Hart listen to a client during their free initial consultation, we pay attention to every detail. Certain factors of legal relevance include:

  • How long you were potentially exposed to asbestos
  • Your current medical condition
  • When you were diagnosed
  • Where you may have been exposed

Below is one of the most common areas where you may be exposed to this harmful substance, and if you’ve been harmed due to exposure to this substance, contact an asbestos lawyer at Williams Hart for your free initial consultation.

Potentially Harmful Location – Your Own Home

Although recent building codes have almost universally outlawed the use of asbestos in buildings, you may have been exposed to it if you live or have lived in a home that was built more than 25 years ago. If that’s the case, have your home checked for this substance immediately.

Initially, asbestos was seen as a useful substance when building a structure because of its flame-retardant qualities and general stability. That’s why it was so prevalent for a time. However, studies eventually began to show the harm that exposure to asbestos causes, and the substance was all but eliminated in building projects.

Below are some of the areas where asbestos may be found in older homes:

  • In the walls of your home
  • In your attic
  • Resilient floor tiles
  • Cement roof or siding tiles
  • Soundproofing materials

Again, if you live in an older home, get it examined immediately, as you need to remove any asbestos from your living environment. However, you need to remove it very carefully, which means that you’ll need to hire a professional to handle the repairs.

You should also contact an asbestos lawyer at Williams Hart, as he or she will be able to help you identify the parties that could be liable for this dangerous exposure. Your initial consultation at Williams Hart is always free, so contact us today.
