Le Sueur is a city in Le Sueur and Sibley counties in the U.S. state of Minnesota, between Mankato and the Twin Cities. It lies along the Minnesota River, just off U.S. Route 169. Le Sueur was named in honor of the French explorer Pierre Charles Le Sueur. The population was 3,922 at the 2000 census. The community is known locally as the "Valley of the Jolly Green Giant". A large billboard, with the caption "Welcome to the Valley" and Green Giant logo, remains even after the company and Green Giant label were bought by Pillsbury in 1979. Now the Green Giant label is owned by General Mills and is canned in Montgomery, Minnesota. The old canning processing plant in Le Sueur was used until 1995. The warehouse is still used for storage.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Le Sueur Minnesota

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.
