What Other Sites in Tavares May Contain Asbestos?
In Tavares, as in many other cities, older buildings and industrial sites are common places that might contain asbestos. This includes old government buildings, schools, and hospitals constructed before asbestos use was regulated. Industrial sites, particularly those involved in manufacturing or heavy industry, might also have used asbestos in their facilities. It's also important to be cautious around older homes and public buildings that might have asbestos in insulation, roofing, or flooring materials.
What Products Used by Residents of Tavares May Contain Asbestos?
Residents of Tavares, especially those living in older homes constructed between 1930 and the late 1970s, might encounter asbestos in various products. This includes insulation in walls and attics, vinyl tiles and the glue used for their installation, roofing shingles, and siding. Older domestic appliances like furnaces, boilers, and some hairdryers might also have components containing asbestos. Additionally, automobile parts such as brakes and clutches in older vehicles, particularly those manufactured between 1926 and 1987, may contain asbestos.
What Are the Legal Grounds for Suing After Mesothelioma Diagnosis?
Such lawsuits usually involve proving negligence or product liability. What this means is that a company or employer failed to provide a safe environment or knowingly exposed you to asbestos without adequate safety measures.
Product liability, on the other hand, involves proving that you were exposed to asbestos through a defective product. The good news is that we have an army of more than 1,000 attorneys specializing in different practice areas, including mesothelioma and asbestos exposure and product liability.
Who Can I Sue After a Mesothelioma Diagnosis?
Liability of asbestos exposure leading up to a positive mesothelioma diagnosis can fall on:
- former employers if you were exposed to asbestos at work;
- manufacturers of asbestos-containing products;
- companies responsible for the installation or maintenance of these products; or even
- a landlord or property owner who failed to properly manage asbestos in a building.
