Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Kilgore College staff member claims years-long asbestos exposure

A long-time staff member of Kilgore College recently revealed that thousands of people may have been exposed to asbestos minerals inside the campus, the Longview News-Journal reported on November 19.

College director Dalton Smith claimed that he was repeatedly instructed to hide the existence of asbestos minerals in the campus. Smith reportedly contacted investigators early this month due to concerns of possible asbestos exposure to thousands of people in different parts of the campus. Areas of the campus like the gym, library, halls and dormitories and other places where people gather were allegedly contaminated with asbestos, Smith said. Kilgore College, however, stated that the campus is “safe,” and they are not aware of ongoing investigation regarding asbestos.

After inhaling or coming into contact with asbestos minerals, people are at risk of suffering a specific type of cancer called mesothelioma. If you believe you have this condition and suspect negligent parties are liable for your asbestos exposure, it could be critical to your health to enlist the help of an attorney who may help you pursue compensation.
