Mesothelioma - Asbestos and Attorneys
Why do we have a page on Mesothelioma?? Two reasons. Asbestos and Attorneys. Both can be your enemy. Many old buildings used asbestos in floor tiles, sheet rock, ceiling tiles, insulation, etc. And asbestos is the main cause of Mesothelioma, a very deadly cancer. Because of the findings of asbestos causing Mesothelioma, there are very strict rules for asbestos in buildings.
One of the first things you will want to do during the buying process
(when you have your 30 day back out period) is to have your building checked
for asbestos. If asbestos is found, you will have several options normally.
One is to seal it in. For example, if it was just found in a a front wall,
you might get away with putting another wall over that wall to seal in
the asbestos. The other option is to have it removed.
This is not something you can, or would want to do yourself, because of
the dangers of breathing asbestos particles, the main cause of mesothelioma.
A professional asbestos removal team will wear full respirator equipment,
and seal the building, or at least the area where the asbestos is found,
and remove it in sealed bags that will be taken for proper disposal.
The other reason we mention Mesothelioma here, is you have probably noticed that there are hundreds of ads on TV by attorneys mentioning mesothelioma. This gives you an indication how much money lawyers are winning in cases, blaming the company or business that has the asbestos for causing the Mesothelioma cancer.
So asbestos and mesothelioma are not something to mess with. Bring in
a professional to check out your building before you pull the trigger
on the final deal. If you catch it in advance, you might be able to work
a deal with the seller having them pay for part or all of the clean up
since the results from an asbestos test get turned into the city, and
it will have to be addressed sooner or later.

If you have a clean bill if health on the asbestos, or you have a good handle on what it will cost to take care of, then you can probably move on!
