Asbestos Scare at U.S. Capitol Highlights Risk Around the Nation, Mesothelioma Law Firm Baron and Budd Reports

DALLAS (PRWEB) August 14, 2014

On July 10, The New York Times published a story stating that a session of the U.S. House of Representatives had to be pushed back due to concerns over the potential risk of exposure to asbestos in a portion of the Capitol Building, the mesothelioma law firm of Baron and Budd reports. Asbestos abatement work was being performed and there was a possible release of the dangerous material. This incident is a reminder that although the use of asbestos has declined substantially in the United States, it still poses a risk because it is found in hundreds of thousands of homes and buildings throughout the nation. And, most importantly, asbestos use is not banned in the U.S. (

According to the article, U.S. Capitol Police later issued a statement that normal operations had resumed in the House portion of the Capitol. However, the East Grand staircase and a nearby meeting room would remain closed until the risk of exposure was eliminated. Exposure to asbestos can cause a wide range of health problems, including malignant pleural mesothelioma. This is an aggressive, deadly form of cancer that develops in the lining of the lungs and currently has no cure.

More than likely, if a building was constructed before 1975 it contains asbestos. An estimated 1.2 billion square feet of asbestos insulation still exists in structures throughout the U.S. Asbestos is composed of microscopic fibers that, when disturbed, can break off and become airborne. When these fibers are ingested or inhaled, they can ultimately lead to mesothelioma.

“Even though the risks of exposure have been known for years and years, asbestos is, incredibly, still not banned in the United States,” said Russell Budd, managing director of mesothelioma law firm Baron and Budd. “As long as asbestos is allowed to be used in the U.S., people will continue to develop mesothelioma and suffer terribly as a result.”
