Protem is an unincorporated community in southeastern Taney County, Missouri, United States, about ten miles north of the Arkansas state line. It is located on Route 125. A fire station, a post office, and some homes are located there. The community was founded in 1870. The name comes from pro tempore (Latin for "temporary"), because the original community could not settle on a name and a temporary one (which became permanent) was needed. The community was jokingly boycotted by the alternative rock band Inferno Armadillo in 2008 following a report that a dozen armadillos were killed in a day by a local resident. The band encouraged fans to avoid spending money at the Protem Post Office. Protem is part of the Branson, Missouri Micropolitan Statistical Area.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Protem Missouri

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.
