Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Developer sued for violating asbestos removal laws

A developer must  now pay $100,000 for allegedly violating the laws put in place by the Environmental Protection Agency when removing asbestos.

The incident occurred as the developer worked on a renovation and converted the former Union Products plastics into retail space. The project was shut down in 2009 after investigators noticed that the correct precautions were not put into place in order to prevent dangerous asbestos fibers from becoming airborne.

Asbestos particles are the primary cause of a rare cancer, mesothelioma. Workers illegally removed asbestos fibers from pipes that were covered with it. After the project was stopped, the attorney general filed a lawsuit against the developer.
