Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Vermont school officials settle asbestos lawsuit

A school district in Montpelier, Vermont has settled an asbestos lawsuit with a local flooring company allegedly involving improper handling of asbestos-laden material.The floor company has settled the matter with the middle school for $65,000.

Two years ago, a middle school in the district underwent an improvement project, but the middle school is claiming that the flooring company, Morrison-Clark, failed to wet the asbestos before the removal and failed to inform the EPA before the removal began.

This incident could have released tiny asbestos particles into the air which can then cause the particles to lodge into a person’s lung. After the particles lodge into the lungs, symptoms can be dormant for up to 50 years.
