Hwy 394 @ 30°40′10″N 93°2′42″W. It is 104 feet above sea level. The geography of the area is slightly hilly, ranging from 80 to 135 feet above sea level, consisting of mostly sandy soils with many creeks (not all dry) and ponds. Children in the area attend East Beauregard Elementary School and East Beauregard High School, five miles north. Bundick Lake is located approximately five miles north/northwest of "downtown" Dry Creek. Dry Creek is at the beginning of the "piney woods" of central Louisiana. Logging is the major industry of the area. There are many extraordinary vegetable gardens, and the entire area is noted for Sugartown melons as well as a "family atmosphere". Dry Creek Baptist Camp is located at the corner of the two highways across from Foreman's grocery, with a Pentecostal Church on the north side and a Bible Church on the south side of its boundary. There are many churches in the area and all faiths utilize the Camp's facilities. Referred to as the "White House", the Dry Creek School is an imposing neo-Greco building that alters one's concept of the traditional country school. Built in 1912, the wings and columns of the building were added in 1919-1920. The school was the first to support public education through taxes. A victim of school consolidation, it closed in 1962. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Dry Creek Louisiana

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.
