Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Carlsbad, California

Carlsbad is a scenic coastal community situated along the Pacific Ocean in the North County San Diego region of Southern California; it is located 87 miles south of Los Angeles and 35 miles north of the city of San Diego. The city spans 42.8 square miles, 40 percent of which is dedicated to open space, including three lagoons, miles of hiking trails and nearly seven miles of coastline. Since Carlsbad's incorporation in 1952, the city’s population has increased nearly 700 percent and has expanded three times its original size, yet it has retained a friendly small-town atmosphere. Today, Carlsbad is home to nearly 105,000 residents and is one of the wealthiest communities in California and in the United States.

In the early 1900s, Carlsbad's primary industry was farming. By the mid-1920s Carlsbad had its own school district, a movie theater and a newspaper, the "Carlsbad Journal." Carlsbad weathered the Depression with the economic support of a new group of settlers from Los Angeles, members of the Hollywood film industry who built second homes and devoted their weekends to gentleman farming. Today, the city is largely known for shopping, tourism, resort living, and thriving manufacturing and high-tech industries. Some of Carlsbad's top employers include Life Technologies, TaylorMade-adidas, Callaway, ViaSat, La Costa Resort and Spa and Legoland California.
