Asbestos Exposure in Pasadena, CA

The city of Pasadena, with a population of about 137,000, is the ninth-largest city in Los Angeles County, California. Occupying 23.1 square miles, the greater Pasadena area is bounded by the Raymond Fault line, the San Rafael Hills, and the San Gabriel Mountains. Pasadena is probably most famous for its colorful history and the hosting of the Tournament of Roses Parade since 1890, and the annual Rose Bowl football game since 1902.

Pasadena was founded in 1874 and incorporated in 1886. From the real estate boom of the 1880s through the end of the 1920s, Pasadena enjoyed a reputation as a tourist center and winter resort for the wealthy. World War II proved to be a boon to Pasadena as Southern California became a major staging area for the Pacific War, and set the city on the path to modern industrial growth. High tech manufacturing and scientific companies made Pasadena their home, a trend which continued in the decades following the war, notably with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Tetra Tech and Ameron International. During the early 1960s, some major companies left Pasadena due to lack of land for expansion. However, the 1970s was a period of economic revitalization for Pasadena. Large corporations relocated their headquarters to Pasadena, the Conference Center was built, more office space was created, and the Plaza Pasadena retail shopping mall was completed. Currently, among Pasadena's top employers are Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Kaiser Permanente, California Institute of Technology (CalTech), Huntington Hospital, and the city of Pasadena.

Pasadena has a long history of industrial and construction activity during a period when use of asbestos materials was prevalent. Workers and loved ones exposed to asbestos may be at risk for developing mesothelioma cancer, a potentially fatal cancer. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Pasadena, California, you may benefit from contacting Dr. Robert Brian Cameron. Also, you may want to seek the advice of a mesothelioma lawyer.
