Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Anniston, Alabama

Anniston was founded in July 3, 1883 and has an estimated population of 24,000. The town sits in a beautiful valley of the Appalachian foothills, and is known for its bountiful recreational activities including golf and biking trails. Anniston was named the “All American City” in 1978.

During the 1870s, iron and steel manufacturing was booming in Anniston. In 1873, the Woodstock Iron Company was founded and by 1887, it was reorganized to include the Anniston Pipe Works. In the 1880s, cotton textiles started to fuel the economy of Anniston. Then in 1917, the military established Fort McClellan during the beginning of World War I. The US Army trained here heavily up until 1999 when it was closed. In 2003, The Anniston Army Depot began destroying stock piles of chemical weapons, including nerve agents.

In 2002, an investigation exposed Anniston as one of the most toxic cities in the country. The Monsanto Chemical Company was one of the sources of this toxic exposure. Polychlorinated Biphenyl (PCB) was produced at Monsanto Chemical Company from 1929 to 1971. Anniston residents filed class action suits against Monsanto Chemical Company for knowingly dumping PCBs into the local water supply. This site, along with others in Anniston, like the Anniston Army Depot, Redstone Arsenal and others have been pinpointed for having asbestos products on-site.
