State plans audit of site where asbestos cleanup stagnated

In North Carolina and across the U.S., asbestos is a dangerous substance that was used in a variety of ways. When it is discovered, it must be cleared from the location in an appropriate manner. Unfortunately, that involves certain costs not just in cleaning it up, but it might frighten those who were previously interested in using the location for their own purposes. Given the risks for asbestos-related disease after asbestos exposure, it is important to keep track of areas that were found to have asbestos. Those who might have been exposed to the substance and became a victim of asbestosis and other health-related problems need to protect themselves by considering asbestos litigation against those responsible.

Legal help for former military members exposed to asbestos

There are many military veterans residing in North Carolina and those who served in branches that involve being stationed on a ship in years past might have been exposed to asbestos. Asbestos was a common substance used on ships and the military did not dispense with it nor disclose of the danger of it for a significant period, placing people in jeopardy. Since asbestos is a substance that is known to be dangerous and can cause asbestos-related disease, those who were affected or lost a loved one should be aware of their rights to seek compensation through a legal filing.
