On February 1, 2008, the Associated Press reported that a grand jury charged two men with violating environmental laws and lying to an OSHA inspector about asbestos removal in the demolition of an old hospital wing in Rochester, New York last year.
According to the article, the two men, both of Rochester, were charged, along with Gordon-Smith Contracting Inc.
The defendants are accused of causing workers to disturb asbestos at the former Genesee Hospital's West Wing building in the removal of copper piping from ceilings filled with fire insulation laden with asbestos.
Sadly, as the mesothelioma lawyers in the Weitz & Luxenberg Asbestos Litigation unit have seen through their work, this is an egregious, yet common, example of people who were exposed to asbestos simply because the powers that be failed to have in place routine safety measures.
Weitz & Luxenberg is a leading plaintiffs' law firm that has represented people affected by mesothelioma for over 20 years. Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.
