Demolition can stir up asbestos and put a stop to construction

Here in Georgia, as elsewhere across the United States, many buildings still contain building materials made from toxic substances. One of the most prevalent is asbestos. When buildings are demolished in order to renovate or build new structures, this toxic material could be stirred up and necessitate all construction efforts to stop until asbestos abatement can occur. Until the matter is dealt with, it could cause a great deal of trepidation for those living or working near the site.

Take-Home Asbestos Exposure: The Hidden Killer's Other Weapon

In the decades after the dangers of asbestos exposure were discovered, you may have heard some refer to it as "the hidden killer."

There used to be numerous products made with asbestos until its health dangers surfaced. Now, only certain products such as your car's brakes or clutch may contain the toxic substance.

Premises liability news: Georgia Supreme Court sets new precedent

Are you at risk for asbestos exposure?

You may be like other Georgia residents who believe that certain toxic substances are no longer a concern, especially in your everyday life, because the government regulates them and does not allow them to be used. One of those products is asbestos. It may surprise you to learn that you may still be exposed to this naturally occurring but toxic substance in a variety of ways.
