Asbestos Exposure in Sausalito, CA

Sausalito is a city in Marin County, California. Located near the northern end of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito has a current population of about 7,000. Formerly a transportation hub and shipbuilding center, Sausalito today is a residential city with a focus on tourism. The waterfront area is distinguished by its large enclave of houseboats, a legacy of Sausalito's World War II shipyards. Sausalito is bounded on the west by Marin Headlands, a part of the Golden Gate National Recreation area which includes the former Fort Baker U.S. Army post.

Shipbuilding and related industries were important to Sausalito from the beginning, as passage across San Francisco Bay was the quickest access route to nearby San Francisco. In the 1870s, the North Pacific Coast railroad located a rail terminus and ferry in Sausalito; automobile ferry service was established in 1922, and the city became a transportation hub. During Prohibition, Sausalito gained a reputation for rum-running. The Mason By-Products Company, whiskey makers since 1892, barely survived by switching to industrial alcohol production, but sold out to American Distilling Company in 1933. A fire sparked by alcohol fumes destroyed the brewery in 1963, and the site was later occupied by condominiums. World War II brought industrialization to Sausalito, as the Marinship Corporation turned out 93 ships between 1942 and 1945. After the war, the abandoned shipyards provided the nucleus for communities of artists and writers who turned the left-behind ships and materials into houseboats. Today, the houseboats form part of an active waterfront whose beaches and marinas draw tourists from all over the Bay Area.

Sausalito's history of shipbuilding and construction makes asbestos exposure, and the risk of mesothelioma, an ongoing concern for workers. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Sausalito, you may benefit from contacting Dr. David Jablons. Additionally, you should know that mesothelioma law firms represent people from Sausalito who were exposed to asbestos and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma.
