Bay Terraces Students Allegedly Sickened by Fumes from Construction on Casey Street

Bay Terraces Students Allegedly Sickened by Fumes from Construction on Casey Street36 Zamorano Fine Arts Academy Students Felt Ill Due to Construction Fumes

BAY TERRACES, San Diego (September 22, 2017) – 36 students from the Zamorano Fine Arts Academy felt ill due to allegedly inhaling fumes from a nearby construction site, according to San Diego Union-Tribune.

On September 21, Thursday, employees from the school called the authorities around 10:20 a.m. after a number of students complaint of not feeling well after smelling a bad odor during their recess.

Briefly after the call, a city Hazardous Materials Team was summoned to check the air quality surrounding the school on Casey Street. Firefighters also responded to the scene and attended to all the students who claimed feeling sick.

As per the article, one child had to be taken to a local hospital after repeatedly feeling ill. The hospitalized student’s parents have been informed of the incident, officials said, but the child’s identity was not immediately disclosed.

San Diego Construction Fumes Incident, Thursday

Furthermore, medical crews mentioned almost all of the students felt better after being checked. The families of all 36 children were notified and the students were picked-up shortly after.

Meanwhile, the HazMat team affirmed nothing harmful was found in the school vicinity. But a construction crew was lining a pipe under Casey Street with resin at the time and officials believe the smell may have drifted over to the school during recess, causing the incident.

According to authorities, fumes are not considered harmful, but construction was halted anyway. At this time, it is unclear when it will resume.


There are several types of harmful accidents that may occur in any construction site. Some of these are chemical exposure, structural failure, and operating and moving equipments. Workers are usually the victims in these construction tragedies but sometimes, bystanders may also incur pain, injuries, and trauma from such incidents. Under California Law, injuries and disturbances caused by hazardous construction sites are commonly settled through disbursement of monetary compensation to the victims. However, if negligence was a factor in the occurrence of an incident, an additional personal injury lawsuit may be filed against the at-fault parties.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use.
