Mesothelioma News Flash – Asbestos found in NY schools

Mesothelioma is caused by asbestos. Anyone exposed to asbestos needs to see a mesothelioma cancer specialist and consult a mesothelioma lawyer.

Boston, MA, (JusticeNewsFlash.com) September 26, 2008  —  Over the past few months, the discovery of asbestos, in schools, in the New York area has caused alarm. Parents are shocked, and officials don’t seem to be alleviating concerns.

The month of September 2008 has brought more reports and complaints. Parents at Heim Elementary School in Amherst, New York, began expressing serious concern, with the discovery of asbestos found in the floor tiles of the school. According to product liability lawyers, there are laws against children being exposed to asbestos materials because of the high risk of contracting mesothelioma lung cancer, due to secondary exposure.

Officials at Apollo Middle School also confirmed asbestos products were found by plumbers, electricians, and other construction workers preparing to renovate in the third floor building. This project included a new roof and is now on hold.

Recently, reports have begun surfacing, of a bidding war in Oneida, New York. Various asbestos-abatement companies are seeking to win the asbestos products removal contract after asbestos-contaminated materials were discovered, at a former school on Elizabeth Street.

According to numerous asbestos articles and mesothelioma organizations, there are many difficulties with renovations of aged structures. The number one complaint is the high cost induced, by the need for asbestos workers trained in the proper handling and removal of various types of asbestos products.

Mesothelioma risk factors are on the rise in our school age population due to the increased types of asbestos exposure during renovation projects. If you or your child has experienced direct or secondary exposure to asbestos products you may consider consulting a mesothelioma lawyer. These attorneys specialize in mesothelioma settlements and mesothelioma lawsuits. A skilled attorney may help you receive the proper mesothelioma treatment and compensation for your injury.
