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.

Homeowners face losing homes, land due to asbestos

Asbestos is an international concern as it is used in materials that are shipped and used around the world. Even when people living in other countries are affected by asbestos, they still face the same devastation and challenges that people living right here in North Carolina face in regards to asbestos.

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.

How should property owners address asbestos?

Property owners have a great deal of responsibility when it comes to making sure their property is safe. Premises liability is about much more than protecting residents and visitors from slipping and falling; owners must also be sure the structure itself is not a threat to anyone's health. 

Where is asbestos often found in homes and buildings?

Whether you own, lease or are looking to buy a home, there are certain hazards that you must be on the lookout for. Often, people think about faulty plumbing, poor insulation crumbling foundations, older roofs and outdated appliances as some of the more significant issues in a home. But these issues can be even more troubling that people may realize.

Shifting blame, avoiding responsibility for asbestos violations

There are many employers and property owners who will do whatever they can to cut their costs. They may work with substandard materials or fail to take appropriate action to improve working or living conditions to keep people safe. Often, these parties are making these decisions because of the short-term benefits they can get; however, the long-term consequences of these choices can be devastating.

More tenants express concern over asbestos removal

In recent posts, we have discussed tenants of rental properties who have been affected by asbestos in their buildings. Sadly, these cases continue to come up because too many property owners continue to fall short when it comes to their responsibility to deal with asbestos safely.
