Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?





Civil lawsuit filed against company for improperly handling asbestos

A Philadelphia contractor has now been sued by the U.S. Department of Environmental Protection after they illegally removed asbestos from a building and violated guidelines put in place by the department to remove the known carcinogen safely.

According to the civil lawsuit, Lovett Contracting removed 3,000 feet of asbestos insulation from piping that was above the grounds of a building that was to be demolished in early 2007. The contractor did not tell the EPA of this removal process.

The company broke the law by failing to wet the asbestos insulation and put it into containers that would not leak. This is done in order to stop as much air pollution as possible. The company did not even have the building inspected for asbestos. The company faces six asbestos-related charges.
