Asbestos Exposure, Mesothelioma Doctors and Lawyers in Reading, Pennsylvania

Asbestos Exposure in Reading, PA

Situated in southeastern Pennsylvania, Reading is a city in and the county seat of Berks County, and the principal city of the Greater Reading Area. With a population of more than 88,000, Reading is the fifth most populated city in Pennsylvania and the sixth most-populous municipality. The city is bounded on the west by the Schuylkill River, on the east by Mount Penn, and on the south by Neversink Mountain. The city lent its name to the now-defunct Reading Railroad, which carried anthracite coal from the Pennsylvania Coal Region to cities along the Schuylkill River. Reading was one of the first cities where outlet shopping became a tourist industry. Reading's symbol is a Japanese-style pagoda, which is located on Mount Penn, visible from nearly everywhere in town.

The construction of the railroad in the 1800s was probably the single greatest factor in the development of Reading. Eventually, the declining coal shipping revenues and strict government regulations would force the Reading Company to file for bankruptcy in 1971 and sell its interests to the newly formed Consolidated Railroad Corporation (Conrail) in 1976. During the early 1900s, the city experienced a burgeoning automobile industry. The city’s growth continued through the 1930s. From the 1940s to the 1970s, however, the city witnessed a drastic decline in prosperity, generally due to the demise of the heavy industry and railroads, and a general movement toward the suburbs. Today, agriculture is a major industry for Reading as well as other cities in Berks County.

Over the years, asbestos containing products were commonly used in industrial and manufacturing sites such as those found in Reading, Pennsylvania. Individuals who worked with and/or around asbestos may be at risk to developing mesothelioma, a potentially terminal cancer. We provide information about mesothelioma treatment options in and around Reading at the bottom of this page.
