Savannah City government has laws that recognize asbestos as a health hazard
Savannah city government has laws concerning asbestos.
The attorneys at the personal injury law firm of Weitz & Luxenberg have decades of experience defending victims’ rights in practice areas that include: accidents/general injury, dangerous drugs, medical malpractice, and environmental pollutants.
The federal, state, and City of Savannah governments recognize asbestos as a dangerous substance blamed for cancers in those who inhale loose fibers.
