The threat of illness from asbestos is something that Americans all over the country are aware of, and take great measures to guard against. Despite the fact that it is illegal to use asbestos in manufacturing in many countries, however, asbestos is still used in the U.S. for roofing and fireproofing materials. But asbestos causes slow growing diseases that may ultimately prove fatal, and exposure to asbestos may result from the negligence of a home manufacturer. In such a situation, it would be wise to call an expert asbestos attorney at 617-787-3700.
Last year, students and parents of the Lafayette Academy in New Orleans, Louisiana, were shocked to learn that their students would be moved into a new building until further notice. This was due to an asbestos disturbance in the Lafayette school. As of now, there is no indication that anyone suffered contamination from the asbestos at the old school, and school officials hope to re-open Lafayette Academy for the 2019-2020 school year.
However, parents have recently raised concerns that there is an asbestos contamination at the new school as well. According to reports, a construction project on the new school caused an asbestos disturbance. First Choice, who runs this particular charter school, claims that it has done all of the proper testing and that students are entirely safe from exposure to asbestos.
