Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Emeryville, California

Asbestos Exposure in Emeryville, CA

Emeryville is a small city in Alameda County, California, with a population of more than 10,000 people. Its proximity to San Francisco, the Bay Bridge, the University of California, Berkeley, and Silicon Valley has been the catalyst for economic growth. Featuring a mix of small businesses and major corporations, Emeryville continues to be East Bay’s hub of retail, dining and hospitality. Some of the large companies in Emeryville today are Novartis, Pixar Animation Studios, LeapFrog, and Jamba Juice.

From the late 19th century into the early 20th century, Emeryville developed as an industrial city. During World War II, Emeryville was the southern terminus of the Shipyard Railway, a specially constructed electric rail line operated by the Key System to transport workers to the Kaiser Shipyards in Richmond. Meat-packing plants as well as other industries thrived. Among these were the Judson Iron Works and the Sherwin-Williams paint company. Emeryville was also once the location of Shell Development, the research arm of Shell Oil Company, until it eventually relocated to Houston, Texas in 1972. By the late 1960s, industries were beginning to move away from Emeryville and the appearance of the city declined. However, in recent years, as part of an urban renewal project, Emeryville has transformed many areas of its city into large shopping and residential areas, as well as expanded and rebuilt roadways.

Emeryville, California has a lengthy history of industry and manufacturing activity during a time when use of asbestos products was prevalent, thus placing workers and others at risk for developing an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma cancer. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma in Emeryville, you may benefit from contacting Dr. David Jablons. Mesothelioma attorneys may also be able to assist you if you or a loved one were exposed to asbestos in Emeryville.
