Eddington is a town located on the eastern side of the Penobscot River in Penobscot County, Maine, United States. It is named after Jonathan Eddy, a militia captain in the French and Indian War, a colonel in the American Revolutionary War, and the first magistrate in the area. Eddy and most of the town's other original settlers were from Nova Scotia, where they had supported the rebel cause against the majority British Loyalist population. Failing in their attempt make Nova Scotia the 14th colony to join the revolution, they emigrated to the District of Maine and were given land grants in present-day Eddington. As of the 2000 census, the town had a total population of 2,052.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Eddington Maine

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.
