Indianola is a city in Red Willow County, Nebraska, United States. The population was 642 at the 2000 census. On 27 March 2004, a fire that started in the town's only grocery store destroyed the store and the city offices. In its early days, Indianola was the county seat of Red Willow County. After the railroad opted to locate it's mid-point terminal on the Omaha to Denver route in McCook rather than in Indianola (McCook offered free land for the rail yard whereas a private citizen in Indianola requested a large sum for his land thinking it was a done deal), population shifted to McCook and after several attempts, some violent, the county offices were moved to McCook. Located in the City Park of Indianola is the grave of a Pawnee Indian woman who died of wounds received at the battle between the Sioux and Pawnee tribes at Massacre Canyon just east of Trenton, Nebraska. Originally she was buried northwest of town on a bluff overlooking Coon Creek. In the 1970s it became obvious that erosion would eventually destroy her gravesite and the citizens of Indianola financed the reburial of her remains in the City Park.

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.
