Three Infamous New York City Asbestos Exposures
When comparing mesothelioma trial attorneys, one of the benefits that our clients experience after teaming up with The Williams Law Firm, P.C. is not only that our firm boasts a nationwide research network and a wealth of trial experience. Joe Williams also is a New York native who is well-versed in the unique circumstances surrounding asbestos exposure in The City's Five Burroughs.
Consider these three landmark New York City locations and the asbestos exposure risks posed to people who helped construct them:
Empire State Building: Asbestos products dominated commercial construction at the time that this iconic New York City landmark was completed in 1931. Many of the maintenance materials used in a mid-century skyscraper of this size-- the tallest in the world for about four decades-- also included asbestos.
New York City Subway: The world's largest and arguably most famous rapid transit system began operating in 1904. In addition to the fact that early subway cars made use of asbestos products as part of their mechanization, industrial railroad workers nationwide are also considered a high-risk group for asbestos exposure. That's because asbestos was widely used for its heat-resistant properties, making it a go-to for high-temperature rail car gaskets, clutch linings, brakes, and more.
World Trade Center Construction: The scale and timing of construction of the original Twin Towers campus in Manhattan's Financial District mean that countless asbestos construction materials went into these buildings. Perhaps the most definitive proof that asbestos was present at the original World Trade Center site is that contemporary researchers showed the mineral was present in the toxic dust that covered the World Trade Center neighborhood after the 9/11 attacks.
