Akron is a town in Henry Township, Fulton County, Indiana, United States. The population was 1,076 at the 2000 census. "Akron," originally named Newark until 1855, was founded by Dr. Joseph Sippy on July 4, 1836 when he brought 47 settlers to what was then the crossing of the Potawatomi and Miami Indian trails and declared, “This is the place!” The first building was constructed where the Methodist church stands now. Dr. Sippy's house, which once stood across the street from Viking Foods, was a stop on the Underground Railroad. Akron hosts a nationally-famous All-Americana 4th of July parade and fireworks. Students attend Akron Elementary and Tippecanoe Valley Middle and High Schools.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Akron Indiana

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.
