Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Eureka, California

Asbestos Exposure in Eureka, CA

Located 280 miles north of San Francisco, the city of Eureka serves as the center for government, healthcare, trade, and the arts for the far north coast region of California. Situated along Humboldt Bay, Eureka is the largest port between San Francisco and Coos Bay offering marinas and industrial docking facilities. It is the county seat of Humboldt County and home to more than 27,000 people. The city is the site of hundreds of significant Victorian homes, situated at the head of its Old Town Historic District. Eureka is also site of the Sequoia Park Zoo, California's oldest zoo.

The economic base of the city was originally founded on timber, fishing, and supplying gold mining efforts inland. Gold mining diminished quickly in the early years. By 1854, Eureka was quickly becoming a major player in the west coast lumber trade; it was home to seven of nine mills processing timber into marketable lumber on Humboldt. One year later 140 lumber schooners operated in Humboldt Bay, supplying lumber to other booming cities along the Pacific coast. In 1914, the first major, reliable land route was established between San Francisco and Eureka with the opening of the Northwestern Pacific Railroad, connecting Eureka through Willits, California to the northern shore of San Francisco Bay. In Eureka, both the timber industry and commercial fishing have diminished, particularly in the latter decades of the 20th Century. Today, significant industries in Eureka are tourism, timber, healthcare, education, and services. Major employers today in Eureka include College of the Redwoods, The County of Humboldt, and St. Joseph Hospital.

Use of asbestos materials was prevalent for much of the 20th century at numerous jobsites in Eureka, California. Working with and/or around asbestos materials increases a person’s risk of developing asbestos cancer. An asbestos law firm may also be able to assist you if you or a loved one were exposed to asbestos in Eureka.
