Post: Unknowingly removing asbestos
Posted by Greg Weatherman on 5/15/04
For anyone who may know,
I have seen occasions where more than one consultant
investigating water damage situations where microbial
growth has occured and they directed a contractor to remove
building materials that may contain asbestos given the date
of the properties (1950's and 1060's).
I know the contractors have violated federal law. What
civil relief can they get for the bad directions by the
consultants who are highly paid pump jockeys?
What about the libility of the property owner even if they
are in the dark?
I have walked from several jobs refusing to do it the cheap
way. I just wonder if any lawyers are looking at this
common problem in the mold remediation industry.
