Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in West Palm Beach, Florida

Asbestos Exposure in West Palm Beach, FL

West Palm Beach is the largest city of Palm Beach County and the oldest municipality in South Florida. West Palm was founded by Henry Flagler in 1893 and on November 5, 1894, the motion passed to officially incorporate the city of West Palm Beach. Soon after its incorporation West Palm became a busy frontier town with storefronts and saloons lining the streets. From 1920 to 1927, the city’s population quadrupled as part of the Florida land boom. Many of West Palm’s historic neighborhoods and buildings were constructed during this time.

Farming and sugar businesses played integral roles in West Palm’s early economy. The growing population in the 1920s led to the opening of West Palm power plants, many of which are operated by Florida Power & Light Company. Pratt & Whitney Aircraft also opened facilities in West Palm Beach during this time. World War II brought change to the local community; the Breakers Hotel became Ream General Hospital and the Biltmore was lent to the United States Coast Guard. Following the war, West Palm Beach experienced major development of swampland just west of the downtown area. The newly constructed eventually became a major shopping boulevard and tourist hotspot. Currently the largest employers in West Palm Beach are the City School System (including West Palm Beach High School and Forest Hill High School), Florida Crystals, and Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne.

West Palm Beach’s active manufacturing and construction industries have put the city in a high risk category for exposure to asbestos. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma in West Palm Beach, you may benefit from contacting Dr. Lary Robinson. Additionally, if you were exposed to asbestos in West Palm Beach, you may benefit from seeking the advice of an asbestos attorney.
