Hebron is a town in Tolland County, Connecticut, United States. The population was 8,610 at the 2000 census. Hebron was incorporated May 26, 1708. The town's Web site describes it as "a quaint Connecticut town. " At one time it was mostly farms, though those are growing fewer as businesses enter. Corporate and franchise chains have replaced some of the apple orchards in recent years. The town also hosts the regional middle and high schools for two adjacent towns, Marlborough and Andover, called RHAM which stands for Regional Hebron Andover Marlborough. A major commercial attraction is the annual Hebron Harvest Fair, which features bingo, fried foods, rides, prizes, arts & crafts, pig races, tractor pulls, prizes for the best pies and the biggest pumpkins. The event occurs every September. The villages of Gilead and Amston are located within Hebron, as are the remnants of two long since abandoned communities, Grayville and Gay City. The site of the latter is now Gay City State Park. Many people are found hiking and biking on its trails every weekend. Gay City is also a very good place for camping, and there is a pond in which swimming is available in season. Hebron has also just recently celebrated its 300th birthday on Memorial Day of 2008. Included was the annual Memorial Day parade featuring the Boy Scouts, soccer teams, RHAM marching bands and other acquaintances. Speeches were said at the end of the parade and ended with the town singing Happy Birthday to Hebron.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Hebron Connecticut

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.
