New York Mesothelioma Lawyer

Until the mid-1980s, most businesses and companies all through the New York extensively used asbestos and products containing the hazardous mineral. The World Trade Center (WTC) was one of the sites where asbestos was used most extensively. It was constructed during the 1960s and 1970s when asbestos was a very popular building material. Insulation containing asbestos was sprayed all through the towers during their construction. When the WTC fell in September 2001, according to the EPA, the volume of airborne asbestos fibers was three times above the acceptable amount. Those who have been injured by asbestos exposure could be entitled to significant damages. Proficient mesothelioma lawyers can help you get paid from an asbestos mesothelioma trust fund in just 90 days or to file a lawsuit against the responsible companies.

Current Asbestos Problem in New York

Even though asbestos has been regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) since the 1980s, still many New Yorkers are being exposed to the deadly carcinogen on a regular basis. These individuals include teachers, engineers, plumbers, and electricians. However, due to strict regulations, now the workers are required to spend only a limited time around the hazardous fibers. Additionally, only certified professionals are allowed to deal with or investigate asbestos. All the workers handling or working near asbestos products have to wear protective clothes as well.

New York also has some deposits of Naturally Occurring Asbestos (NOA). Studies say the highest number of mesothelioma-related deaths before the 1980s occurred in Jefferson County, which is home to NOA deposits.
