San Antonio is an unincorporated community in Socorro County, New Mexico, United States, roughly in the center of the state. The entire population of the county is around 18,000; the population of San Antonio is hard to pin down because the area is somewhat ill-defined. San Antonio is nowadays partly agricultural, partly a bedroom community for Socorro and White Sands Missile Range, and has a few other aspects, such as being the gateway to the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge. Interstate 25 runs along the west, and US 380 begins there and heads east to Carrizozo. The Rio Grande is just to the east of San Antonio, and the BNSF Railway runs through it and has a minimal yard (not much more than a siding). San Antonio has an elementary school, built in the WPA era. It also has a water system and a volunteer fire department; both include in their districts Luis Lopez, midway between San Antonio and Socorro, as well as Bosquecito and San Pedro, both of which are east of the Rio Grande. There is no local government other than the county itself. There is a US Post Office (Zip Code 87832). The village's Roman Catholic church, named after San Antonio, is served by the priest from San Miguel Church in Socorro. It has mass once a month in rotation with four other churches in small communities around Socorro. Saint Anthony was popular in this part of New Spain and this resulted in many communities having a San Antonio church. There is also a Baptist church in San Antonio, the Community Baptist Church. San Antonio, when part of New Mexico Territory, was the birthplace of Conrad Hilton. Hilton was one of the original legislators in the newly formed State of New Mexico, and founded the Hilton Hotels Corporation. Hilton's name can still be seen ("C Hilton 1903") carved on the wall of what was once the schoolhouse, since then a mechanic's garage, and now a barn.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In San Antonio New Mexico

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.
