Etna, originally named "Mill Village," is a small village within the town of Hanover, New Hampshire, in the United States. It is located in southwestern Grafton County, approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) east of Hanover's downtown and 2.5 mi (4.0 km) south of the village of Hanover Center, on Mink Brook. Etna has a separate ZIP code (03750) from the rest of Hanover, as well as its own fire station, church, and library. Commerce revolves around the Etna General Store for the 814 residents and occasional visitor in what a small blue-and-white sign in a yard along the main road humorously calls "Metropolitan Downtown Etna. " The Appalachian Trail passes a mile or so north of the village before it turns northeast to cross Moose Mountain on its way to Lyme. Etna can be accessed from NH Rt 120 via the Greensboro Road or Great Hollow Road (Etna Road, north of the Lebanon exit from Interstate 89), or from Hanover via Trescott Road (E. Wheelock Street). The author Jodi Picoult, who wrote My Sister's Keeper, The Pact, and Nineteen Minutes, among others, lives in Etna. It is also the location of the 2001 murders of Dartmouth College professors Half and Susanne Zantop, dubbed the Dartmouth Murders. Every summer, the village holds the Etna Old Timer's fair on the Hanover Center green.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Etna New Hampshire

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.
