Mesothelioma or Asbestos Question?

Ohio school found with asbestos

The debris from a demolished building at an elementary school in Conneaut reportedly contained asbestos according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Star Beacon reported on September 11.

Linda Oros of the EPA stated that they found asbestos from the debris while the building at Amboy Elementary School was being demolished last August. The EPA was unable to measure the amount of asbestos from the building because they were not informed before the demolition was started. The EPA is requiring the demolition contractor to remove the debris and special actions will be done to avoid asbestos from contaminating the air. A charge of first-degree misdemeanor was filed against property owner Rudy Pryately Sr. after he neglected an order from a fire official. The EPA initially suspected the presence of asbestos in the school that was constructed several decades ago.

People unfortunately suffer from a rare and often fatal lung cancer called mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos in the air. However, if you think this happens to you or to a loved one, financial assistance may possibly be given to you if negligent companies are liable.
