Neighbors at risk of asbestos exposure after illegal demolition

Despite the limits the government has placed on the use of asbestos in building supplies, the danger remains. Many older homes and structures in South Carolina were built with asbestos-containing materials in their floors, walls, roofs and other places. As long as the materials are undisturbed, there is less danger. However, when the particles are disturbed, for example during a renovation, everyone around is at risk of asbestos exposure.

Johnson & Johnson allegedly knew about asbestos exposure

Asbestos, a toxic, cancer-causing substance, is well-known to be dangerous to human health. This is not new information to anyone in South Carolina, and yet for decades Johnson & Johnson allegedly knew that their products were contaminated with asbestos, and said nothing. Evidence indicates that the company actively tried to cover up ongoing asbestos exposure suffered by their customers.

Wife sues manufacturer over husband's mesothelioma death

Contrary to what may be popular belief, asbestos exposure can occur virtually anywhere and at anytime, not just in the construction and manufacturing industries. The health effects of such exposure are tangible and devastating for victims who go on to develop mesothelioma. For some in South Carolina, these terrible health outcomes do not occur until years or even decades after exposure.

Library demolition may cause widespread asbestos exposure

Despite its once prevalent use in construction, most people in South Carolina now understand just how dangerous asbestos is. As such, communities have an understandable right to be concerned when they learn of a potential source of asbestos exposure or contamination. For one community in a different state, there are mounting worries in regard to the demolition of an old library.
