Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Chula Vista, California

Chula Vista, California is the second largest city in the San Diego metropolitan area and the seventh largest city in Southern California.  Chula Vista is Spanish for “beautiful view”, and was named such due to its scenic location between the San Diego Bay and coastal mountain foothills.  On October 17, 1911, Chula Vista officially became an incorporated city.

Chula Vista’s proximity to downtown San Diego and the Mexican border (7 miles to each) has propelled the city to the center of the California-Mexico Border Region, one of the richest economic and culturally diverse zones in the United States.  The San Diego Land and Town Company is responsible for initially developing Chula Vista lands around the turn of the 20th century.  Soon, industry caught on and Chula Vista became a thriving agricultural community.  At one point Chula Vista was the largest lemon-growing center in the world.  Rohr Industries, currently known as Goodrich Aerostructures Group, opened a factory in Chula Vista and began manufacturing aircraft parts, railcars, subway cars, and other mass transit equipment.  Largest employers presently located in Chula Vista are Southwestern College, Goodrich Aerostructures, and Sweetwater Union High School District.

Chula Vista has a number of sites where asbestos containing products were known to be used, particularly in the manufacturing and construction fields.  Workers exposed to asbestos may be at risk to develop a form of asbestos cancer called mesothelioma.  If you were diagnosed with mesothelioma in Chula Vista, you may benefit from seeking the advice of a mesothelioma lawyer.
