Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Birmingham, Alabama

Asbestos Exposure in Birmingham, AL

Founded in 1871, Birmingham was named after Birmingham, England, which was once a huge metal manufacturing city of Great Britain. Located at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Birmingham is the largest city in Alabama with an estimated population of 230,000. Birmingham is home to many museums, parks and festivals. Several colleges and universities are located in Birmingham, including The University of Alabama at Birmingham, Birmingham School of Law, and Samford University. In the 1950s and 1960s, Birmingham was at the center of the civil rights struggle for African-Americans and the place where Dr. Martin Luther King wrote the now famous “Letter from Birmingham Jail.”

Since its founding and through the 1960s, Birmingham was the main industrial center of southern United States. Early on, Birmingham's major industries were iron and steel production and railroading. Many large steelmakers included US Steel, McWane and Nucor. In 1983, Birmingham Steel Corporation was established to purchase existing steel mills like Birmingham Bolt Co. and help make them profitable. In the 1970s, significant renovation efforts focused on the development of the University of Alabama at Birmingham, which consequently formed into a major medical and research center. Also, commercial construction during this time drastically changed the skyline of the city. Today, Birmingham boasts a mix of manufacturing and service-oriented jobs primarily in the areas of healthcare, education, engineering and transportation.

Birmingham Steel Corporation, Gulf State Steel Company, and Sloss Industries are just a few of the jobsites in Birmingham where use of asbestos products was prevalent putting workers and others at risk for developing an asbestos disease. If you were diagnosed with asbestos cancer in Birmingham, you may also benefit from seeking the advice of an asbestos lawyer.
