Hudson is a town in Caldwell County, North Carolina, United States. The population was 3,078 at the 2000 census. It is part of the Hickory–Lenoir–Morganton Metropolitan Statistical Area. Hudson is a one-time booming furniture production town that was hard hit by the transition of furniture production from other countries in the last decade. However, things are looking up for the small town as new businesses continue to relocate into the area as well as retirees who like the close proximation to the mountains and the low cost of living. Hudson's landmarks are the "HUB" (the Hudson Uptown Building, the former Hudson Elementary school where locals can gather for special events), The Yellow Submarine, The Gold Mine Fine Jewelry & Gifts, Inc. , the Hudson Library, the Hudson Volunteer Fire Department, the Hudson Post Office, the Hudson Optimist Club (where many young local boys and girls can enjoy America's greatest pastime), and Hudson Primary Care. The town boasts two parks—Redwood Park features a beautiful playground with children's slides/activities, a swimming pool and several ballfields. The Hickman Windmill & Depot Museum Park features the Historic Hudson Depot and Red Caboose as well as a 100 year old windmill. Music is often performed in the park, most notably Pickin' In the Park during summer months. On clear days, Hudson offers views of the Blue Ridge Mountains highest peaks at Grandfather Mountain. These views can be seen picturesquely over Hudson Middle School directly off the Hudson HWY 321 exit. New York Times bestselling author Jan Karon attended first through eighth grades at Hudson School in the historic building now known as the HUB. Activities of note in Hudson include the annual Butterfly Festival which is held in May, Pickin' In The Park and the Fourth of July Kiddie Car Parade.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Hudson North Carolina

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.
