George W. Bush at Corner Cafe in August 2007 Riverside is a city in Platte County, Missouri, United States. The population was 2,979 at the 2000 census. The town on the edge of the Missouri River has a long history of racing and gambling. It formally incorporated in 1951. For many years the town was known for its Riverside Race Track. The Riverside Park Jockey Club operated from 1928 to 1937 and was popularly called “Pendergast Track” after its patron Big City Boss Tom Pendergast (although Pendergast was not officially on its organization papers). The horse racing track was on the site of a former dog racing track. The track operated under a questionable legal basis. The site was supplanted by an automobile race track which closed in the 1980s. A legal gambling establishment on the river now is the $106 million casino run by Argosy Gaming Company. One of the landmarks in Riverside is the Red X store. It was founded in the 1950s by Edward Young and his family. The store is famous for selling beer, wine, cigarettes and gasoline cheap. They are also famous for rebuilding after many floods and fires. On August 22, 2007, President George W. Bush met with residents at the Corner Cafe in Riverside.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Riverside 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.
