MONY Plaza consists of a two-building commercial office complex. It is located on Madison Street in Syracuse, New York. MONY Tower I was built in 1965 for the Mutual Life Insurance Company of New York. MONY Tower II was built in 1973. Both MONY Tower I and MONY Tower II are 19-stories high.
Unfortunately, many of our clients who worked at Merck & Company are now being diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma and lung cancer. During the repair and maintenance of the MONY buildings, laborers came into contact with plentiful asbestos dust. The buildings were coated with asbestos fireproof insulation, pipe covering, block insulation and insulating cement. Fireproof insulation coated the structural steel of the MONY buildings so as to protect them from fire damage or high heat.
Boilers in the basement of MONY Tower I produced steam which was used to heat water for radiators. Boilers, pipes, valves, and pumps in the boiler system were coated with asbestos insulation. During repairs and maintenance, asbestos fibers would be emitted into the air and could be inhaled by laborers.
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 MONY Plaza.
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.
