Minter City is an unincorporated community in Leflore County, Mississippi, in the Mississippi Delta region. The former downtown area of Minter City is located on the Tallahatchie River, at the intersection of River Road and Old Hwy 8. State Hwy 8 intersects U.S. 49 in the Minter City area. Originally on land owned by James Minter, the town was named Walnut Place or Walnut Grove. Because there was another Mississippi town named Walnut Grove, the name was changed. Names were put into a hat and the name Minter was drawn. The land that some may consider the old town or downtown Minter City is privately owned now by one family. A small part of the downtown still exists.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Minter City Mississippi

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.
