Monroe Community College, a part of the State University of New York system, was founded in 1961. The school was initially located in Rochester, New York, but in 1968, a second campus was built in Brighton, New York. Monroe Community College’s Brighton campus has 26 buildings including athletic facilities, dorms, laboratories, classrooms, and administrative offices. The college currently enrolls 20,000 students per semester.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at Monroe Community College are now being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer. Fireproof asbestos insulation coated the structural steel of the Brighton campus. Asbestos insulating cement and pipe covering also coated the water and steam pipes. When the pipes were cut or handled, asbestos dust was released into the air. Asbestos insulating cement was also used, and boilers were coated with asbestos block insulation. Electricians, carpenters, sheet metal workers, and pipefitters regularly worked on Monroe Community College’s buildings and were thus exposed to asbestos.
Asbestos is dangerous because its fibers are extremely fragile and break easily into tiny particles that your body’s air filtration system can’t trap and expel. When asbestos gets into your lungs and stays there, it can cause mesothelioma or lung cancer. Risk of diagnosis increases with the length of time that a person has been exposed although even short exposures can cause mesothelioma or lung cancer. The most common causes of asbestos exposure are in the workplace or from products in the home. Spouses and family members of workers could also be exposed to asbestos dust and fibers from the clothing the workers wore home from job sites like Monroe Community College.
Mesothelioma is a rare disease that is diagnosed between 2,500 and 3,000 times each year. Anyone who has been exposed to asbestos is at risk for developing mesothelioma or lung cancer. Although most companies knew that asbestos was dangerous, they continued to allow their employees to work with and around asbestos without protective gear until the late 1970s.
