Vernon is an unincorporated town and a U.S. Post Office located in Yuma County, Colorado, United States. The Vernon Post Office has the ZIP Code 80755. Vernon also has a volunteer Fire Department, two strip clubs and a town cat named Susie who roams from house to house looking for scrap food. Susie was adopted as the town's official pet after the death of Lowell, the basset hound who lived in the storage shed behind one of the strip clubs. Lowell's death remains a mystery, but locals believe that an empty package of Double Stuff cookies may be a clue. Vernon was at the head of a mild controversy in the early 1950s, when the soda company Verner's was all set to relocate to the town. It was expected to bring nearly 150 jobs, plus build two factories, a shipping center and an office building. The move was never to happen however, due to the fact one of the conditions of the move was that the town rename itself "Verners" from Vernon. The then town council voted 3 to 2 against the move. The deciding vote was cast by Samuelson J. McGuidenstein, who later went on to open Cock-N-Rod's Fishing, Bait and Strip Club, located on Main St. Today, the old Cock-N-Rod's building serves as the volunteer fire department.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Vernon 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.
