Elbert is an unincorporated community and the location of a U.S. Post Office in Elbert County, Colorado, United States. The community is named for a past Colorado territorial governor and state Supreme Court Justice Samuel Hitt Elbert. The Elbert Post Office has the ZIP Code 80106. Elbert was a bustling center until May 31, 1935, when Kiowa Creek, a stream next to the community, flooded suddenly and washed away half of the community. It now is the location of only a few stores, churches, and houses. The majority of Elbert residents are involved in the agriculture sector. On June 15, 2009 at 1:46 pm, a large three quarter mile-wide, EF2 tornado touched down in rural fields west of the town. The tornado came within 2 miles of the town at its closest. The tornado destroyed a barn at a farm and damaged an airplane hangar. During the summer, Elbert is much busier due to a nearby Boy Scout Camp, Peaceful Valley Scout Ranch, which has 10,000 visitors annually. Additionally, 2.8 miles south of Elbert lies the J-CC Ranch Camp, a Jewish camp owned by the Denver Jewish Community Center. Elbert lies along Elbert Road, which connects the town of Kiowa to U.S. Route 24. The largest nearby city is Elizabeth, which is about 15 minutes' drive away.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Elbert Colorado

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.
