Farmington Hills is an affluent community in Southeastern Michigan. It is the largest city in Oakland County in the U.S. state of Michigan. Its population was 82,111 at the 2000 census. It is an upscale, northwestern suburb of Metropolitan Detroit. Although the two cities have separate services and addresses, Farmington and Farmington Hills are often thought of as the same community. Features of the community include a recently renovated downtown, shops, a vintage cinema, numerous restaurants, upscale car dealerships, art galleries, and one of Oakland County's largest public parks, Heritage Park. There are many historical sites, such as 'The Longacre House' of Farmington Hills, and 'The Governor Warner Mansion'. Both cities are served by the Farmington Hills Community School District, which is one of the top rated public school systems in the state. Due to its close location to other affluent communities of West Bloomfield, Bloomfield Hills, and Novi, the communities' real estate values tend to be higher than those in the city of Farmington.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Farmington Michigan

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.
