If our street were never fixed, we would be riding on rubble! But our cities do fix and allocate funds to repair our streets, sidewalks, walkways, roads and pedestrian areas, which means we have safe areas to travel in the city realm. Sometimes though, as the roadways and walkways are being repaired, there are hazards that are formed by wet and undried asphalt, cement and tar. People can be injured and slip and fall in an area with wet and undried asphalt, cement and tar, which can cause serious personal injuries.
If you have been injured as a result of being hurt by stepping, slipping or falling on wet and undried asphalt, cement and tar, you need to give our law office a call. You will want to talk to a

Why Are Wet Undried Asphalt, Cement and Tar Areas So Hazardous?
There are many different compounds that are carcinogenic and hazardous for humans to inhale, smell, be around or fall into, including:
- Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons
- Viscous liquid asphalt prime coats
- Slurry seal
- Seal coat
- Fog coat
- Tack coat
- Surface treatments
- Coal tar
- Coal tar pitch
- Penetration macadam
- Liquid asphalt
- Coal residue
- Coal tar pitch volatiles
- Polycyclic aromatic compounds
- Crushed gravel silt
- Surface coat aggregates
- Liquid asphalt cement
What is so dangerous about these compounds, is that they are made of seriously caustic chemicals and compounds. These derivatives can get into your lungs, and cause serious damage there from smelling and inhaling the sealants, compounds, liquid asphalt and cement, and tar derivatives. The polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons or PAHs are dangerous environmental contaminants. These materials are made from bitumen, fillers, fibers, aliphatic amines and binding chemicals to make the road materials bind together to repair the roads. Bitumen is a by-product of heavy crude oil distillation residues, which are heavy in nitrogen, oxygen, sulfur, aromatic hydrocarbons, aliphatic compounds and benzo pyrenes.
The problem with PAHs, is that they create dangerous gasses whether the materials are hot, warm or cold. The fumes and vapors are able to get into a person’s lungs, and damage the lung tissues. Depending on the weather, how warm it is outside and how hot the materials when poured, it can be a recipe for hazardous disasters for anyone breathing in these fumes. The particulate matter in these materials used to perform road repairs can damage skin, create respirable crystalline silica, and can cause fatal lung disease from the dust and ventilation issues associated with road and sidewalk repairs.

Cement products are high risk products as well, and wet concrete can quickly react with a person’s skin if the individual falls into wet concrete, to cause irritants to the skin, affect the mucus layers of the eye and deprive the skin of its necessary natural moisture. The concrete can cause skin irritations, and serious allergic reactions as well, if a person slips and falls onto wet or undried concrete. The risk is dying from silicosis, which is a disease which is characterized by exposure to unventilated undried concrete, and there is no cure.
