Asbestos often found in historic buildings

If you live or work in a building that was built before the 1980s, chances are pretty good that it was built with products containing asbestos. The fiber is often found in roofs, tiling, insulation or plumbing systems in older structures because it was an inexpensive, strong material used for its fireproofing qualities.

FAQ About Property Owner Liability In North Carolina

At the Law Offices of Wallace & Graham, we receive many calls and emails asking whether a property owner may be held liable for compensating a building tenant or resident for contracting mesothelioma due to asbestos used in the building materials. We thought we would use this blog post to discuss some of the most frequently asked questions and answers.

This time of year, homeowners all across North Carolina will be doing some spring cleaning. Whether the plan is to do some light yard work or some more extensive renovations in the home, it is crucial for property owners to take very seriously the dangers of asbestos.

What to know about asbestos and premises liability claims

When people think about premises liability claims, they often think of claims that involve dog bites, slip-and-fall injuries or swimming pool accidents. While these are some of the more common incidents prompting premises liability claims, asbestos exposure can also be grounds for a legal claim against a property owner.

Why isn't my property owner removing asbestos in my building?

Home owners, renters and tenants in commercial buildings should be made aware if they will be living or working in a building that contains asbestos. A property owner has a duty to warn people about the presence of asbestos, but many people may wonder why the toxic fiber isn't or hasn't been removed.

Asbestos is an international concern as it is used in materials that are shipped and used around the world.

When should asbestos be removed from a building?

Asbestos is a notoriously dangerous substance. For decades, it was used without caution or regulation before the devastating effects of exposure were known. Even after the risks were known, asbestos exposure was a huge problem for many people working or living in environments where asbestos was used thanks to poor oversight and noncompliance with safety requirements.
