New York Airport Asbestos Lawyer
Until restrictions beginning in the 1970s, the use of asbestos and products that contained asbestos was widespread in aircrafts and airports—including LaGuardia Airport in Queens. Workers involved in building construction and maintenance, as well as aircraft maintenance, at LaGuardia prior to asbestos abatement may have been exposed to the asbestos fibers that can contribute to the rare but deadly cancer known as mesothelioma. Victims of these disease should consult with a New York airport asbestos attorney about legal action.

ASBESTOS & AIRPORTS
Like many airports and other structures built in its era, LaGuardia Airport contained various asbestos-based products used for a variety of purposes. Concern over asbestos at LaGuardia has resurfaced in recent years among renovation work, which some feared would discharge long-dormant asbestos particles into the air; New York City requires asbestos abatement for such renovation projects.
Airports have used asbestos for:
- HEAT RESISTANCE AND FOR PROTECTION IN TERMINALS
- POWER FACILITIES
THE STATUE OF LIMITATIONS APPLIES AFTER YOUR DIAGNOSIS, NOT WHEN YOU WERE EXPOSED
The health problems associated with asbestos exposure are especially devastating, because mesothelioma in particular can take decades to manifest symptoms. Many workers who were in contact with asbestos through the early 1970s likely did not know they were being exposed to asbestos or were unaware of the risks of asbestos and are only now in need of a New York asbestos lawyer.
