LegalView.info Annouces Mesothelioma Blog Site Update
February 09, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsLegalView.info, a leader in providing individuals with access to mesothelioma legal help online, has recently announced its most recent update to its mesothelioma blog site. This addition to the site, which already contains a vast amount of content available free of charge for persons seeking legal assistance, illustrates LegalView.info's continued commitment to keeping its mesothelioma resources as current and topical as possible.
The most recent blog post deals with a story that surfaced earlier this year. The Oregon State Correctional Institution in Salem, Ore., suspended visiting hours in the prison after a ceiling tile in the mechanical room became dislodged and fell to the floor, bringing with it portions of the ceiling insulation containing loose asbestos fibers. Prison officials were concerned that the loose fibers and insulation could potentially contaminate the area, exposing those in close proximity to asbestos particulate. Airborne exposure to asbestos is the leading cause of mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer which attacks the lining of the lungs. Mesothelioma cases are the main focus of every mesothelioma attorney. LegalView.info assists many of these experienced attorneys, providing them with pertinent information and connecting clients with lawyers.
According to a prison spokesperson, the ventilation system in the prison ran from the mechanical room to the visitors room and two nearby offices, raising concerns of spreading the toxic fibers and particulate matter. The shutdown was announced immediately, and no reopening was scheduled until proper testing could be implemented. The damaged tiles and insulation were noticed by a maintenance worker, who reported the concern to his supervisor. However, there is no telling exactly how long prison personnel or inmates may have been exposed to asbestos. Several inmates of the prison have already considered a
mesothelioma law suit, though there is much speculation.
Again, asbestos exposure is not to be taken lightly. Over the past half-century, hundreds of thousands of individuals have died after exposure to asbestos. The number of health concerns that can stem from prolonged asbestos inhalation are staggering: asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma are by the far the most deadly of all illnesses, though there are several others. Oftentimes, persons exposed contact an
asbestos lawyer mesothelioma counsel to assist them in his or her struggle.
Any individual who believes they may have a case against an employer, contractor or other purveyor or installer of asbestos-contaminated insulation should contact an mesothelioma lawyer at his or her earliest convenience. Since asbestos exposure occurs almost exclusively within the workplace, at school or other older buildings, it is almost assured that the individual is not to blame for his or her condition due to a lifestyle choice. LegalView.info continues to provide access to these legal resources free of charge.
