Earp, California is an unincorporated townsite in San Bernardino County in the Sonoran Desert close to the California/Arizona state line at the Colorado River in Parker Valley. It is named for famed western lawman Wyatt Earp who settled in the area with his second wife, Josephine Sarah Marcus. Earp was living in Vidal in 1906 and staked claims for both copper and gold mines near the base of the Whipple Mountains that same year. Earp spent the winters of his last years working the claims, and died in Los Angeles on January 13, 1929. Though there was never an actual town on the site of Earp, there is a post office near Earp's mining claims at the eastern terminus of Highway 62 near Parker, AZ signed as "Earp, California" with a ZIP code of 92242. For amusement only there is a tiny cemetery showing the fake grave of Wyatt Earp. In regards to telephone communications, the entire region on the California side falls under area code 760. Its location in relationship to the county seat makes Earp the farthest point from the county seat at more than 220 miles (350 km) away. Unofficial alternate names of the area are listed as Drenna and Drennan.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Earp California

What is asbestos and mesothelioma litigation?

Mesothelioma is caused by asbestos exposure. Asbestos, once regarded as a miracle mineral, was popular due its lightweight but tough characteristics as well as for its heat-resistant properties. This naturally occurring mineral was used in many commercial and consumer products, from construction materials such as cement, roofing shingles and insulation, to consumer and industrial applications such as hair dryers, automobile brake pads and pipe insulation.

Mesothelioma is an asbestos-related cancer which forms in the lining of the chest or abdominal cavities on the mesothelium - the sac lining the internal body cavities. Mesothelioma cases involve those who have suffered adverse health effects from exposure to asbestos on the job, in consumer products, or in the environment.

Asbestos and mesothelioma litigation are a type of toxic tort litigation.
