LegalView Continues Providing Updated Mesothelioma Blog Content
October 17, 2009 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsLegalView.com continues to provide the most pertinent and current personal injury content available on the Internet today. This week, LegalView is pleased to announce their most recent round of asbestos and mesothelioma-related blog posts, available for viewing at http://mesothelioma.legalview.com/blog/ . The information provided this week presents those seeking mesothelioma resources with a broad range of informative articles, a mesothelioma search engine, and links to other pages containing relevant resources.
One of the more notable entries from this week reminds readers of the dangers present not only in buildings where asbestos is present, but also the hazards involved in removal. The story follows a contractor in New Jersey enlisted to remove asbestos from a local high school. According to the report, workers contracted to remove the toxic material failed to properly follow the safety regulations, endangering not only themselves but all students in the building as well, opening the door for the filing of a asbestos mesothelioma lawsuit. The Department of Labor cited the contractor working on the removal with five safety violations after students and faculty reported a large "plume of white dust" rising from the school. Additionally, an inspector observed three workers not wearing proper respirators to shield them from the harmful particulate matter.
Perhaps what is most disturbing about all of this is the number of people potentially exposed to asbestos. Though the district insists that the removal took place only after classes had been dismissed for the day, both faculty and students reported noticeable amounts of debris covering high traffic areas, including classrooms. If this is truly the case, then the potential health risks posed by this contamination are dangerous and clear; those exposed should consider contacting a mesothelioma asbestos lawyer if they have not already.
Another post on the LegalView mesothelioma blog deals with the litigation involving residents and workers of a community in San Diego fighting against the San Diego Gas and Electric Company. After four years of legal proceedings, federal prosecutors have asked for a dismissal of a case surrounding an alleged workplace violation. The case centers around an accusation that workers employed by the company mismanaged an excavation project in 2000, potentially exposing residents to harmful asbestos particulate matter. The residents contacted a mesothelioma asbestos attorney and began legal proceedings.
However, the legal process has not gone as some would have liked it too. The San Diego Gas and Electric company presented evidence showing tests for harmful substances had turned up negative, though residents contend that they are not satisfied with the tests. With the potential dismissal of the case pending, members of the community are debating seeking alternate methods of reaching a
that will satisfy their demands for justice.
