Brooksville is a city in Bracken County, Kentucky, in the United States. As of the 2000 census, the city's population was 589. It is the county seat of Bracken County. The area was settled before 1800 by William and Joel Woodward, and known early on as Woodward's Crossroads, as it was located at the crossing of several local roads. County government moved from Augusta, Kentucky to Woodward's Crossing in 1833 due to its more central location, although it did not become the official county seat until February 16, 1839. The legislation to formalize Woodward's Crossing as the county seat was sponsored by senator David Brooks, and the town was renamed in his honor. The population has remained stable since 1970, when it was 609.

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.
