Firefighters and asbestos exposure

The recent death of a firefighter from Michigan serves as a sobering reminder of the risks that firefighters endure. It also reminds us of the debt society owes to these men and women who work every day to keep others safe.

What are the laws for asbestos removal?

Many older buildings contain a variety of asbestos-laden products. When these materials start to break down, their asbestos fibers can get into the air. Once that happens, they can get into your body, where they can reside for decades before causing cancers like mesothelioma.

Can manufacturers be held responsible for third-party components?

The New Jersey Supreme Court recently determined that, in certain situations, it does not matter if a third party made an asbestos-containing part or not. Manufacturers and distributors that fail to warn users about the hazards of their products or the hazards of third-party replacement parts can be held strictly liable.

Asbestos-containing pipes delay construction on a New York trail

Construction on New York’s Empire State Trail was recently delayed after the discovery of asbestos-containing pipes. Construction of the trail was expected to be completed by the end of 2020, at which time it would create a continuous 750-mile route across the state. Once completed, it will be the longest multi-use state trail in the country.

Will asbestos be banned in the U.S?

Many people mistakenly believe that asbestos is banned in the United States, as it is in many other countries and are shocked when they learn that this isn't entirely true. Even some who know asbestos is not fully banned are surprised that there seems to be little movement toward a full ban of this toxic substance.
