The city of Riverside is the 12th largest city in California with a population of more than 300,000. Located along side the Santa Ana River, 60 miles east of Los Angeles, the city of Riverside occupies 81 square miles. Riverside’s location positions it as one of Southern California’s major transportation hubs. The city is accessible via Interstate 215, the Riverside and 60 Freeways and BNSF and UPSP railroads. Riverside is home to four internationally recognized education institutions: the University of California, Riverside, California Baptist University, La Sierra University, and Riverside Community College; and to the Mission Inn, the largest Mission Revival Style building in the United States.

Riverside was founded in the early 1870s and is the birthplace of the California citrus industry. Riverside serves as the seat of Riverside County, the 2nd fastest growing county in the nation, and leads the region known as the “Inland Empire” in virtually every measure of economic power. Although Riverside’s beginnings are steeped in agriculture, today the economy relies heavily on government, education, manufacturing, and retail. Riverside has recently taken steps in developing its industrial and manufacturing sectors. In the last 10 years Riverside has attracted more than 125 industrial employers. Riverside’s light manufacturing base now includes such sectors as electrical instruments, plastics, wood, glass, metal fabrication, food processing, recreational vehicles, and imaging equipment. Among Riverside’s top employers are the University of California, Riverside; Riverside Community College; Parkview Community Hospital; and Goodrich Corporation.

Riverside has a long history of manufacturing in industries known for their use of asbestos-containing products. Workers and others exposed to asbestos may be at risk for mesothelioma cancer. If you were exposed to asbestos in Riverside and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should also consider contacting a mesothelioma law firm.
