Asbestos Exposure in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Located 23 miles north of Miami on the Atlantic coast, the city of Fort Lauderdale is the county seat of Broward County and has a population of just over 180,000 people. Fort Lauderdale is known as the “Venice of America” because of the extensive network of canals that run throughout the city; there is a total of 165 miles of waterways within the city limits. Fort Lauderdale became officially incorporated on March 27, 1911.

In the early 20th century, Fort Lauderdale experienced a land boom as did much of the state of Florida, with its population increasing over 300% in less than ten months. All supplies were transported into the city via the Florida East Coast Railway or the Port of Miami; Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades was not yet completed at this time. During World War II, Merle Fogg Field became a U.S. Naval Air Station and later, after being decommissioned by the navy, the site served as Fort Lauderdale Airport. Today, Fort Lauderdale airport is the eleventh busiest general aviation airport in the country. Several Ft. Lauderdale landmarks took place in the 1960s; Florida Power & Light Company went online with four operating units and petroleum became Port Everglades number one commodity. A few years later, 300 acres were purchased by a developer with construction plans for what would become Fort Lauderdale’s booming Southport cargo terminal.

Asbestos exposure in the workplace has been an enduring problem for Fort Lauderdale as a result of its history in the manufacturing and construction settings. Asbestos attorneys may be able to assist you if you were exposed to asbestos in Fort Lauderdale.
