Supply is a small unincorporated community in Brunswick County, North Carolina, USA located around the intersection of US 17 (Ocean Highway) and NC 211 (Southport-Supply Road/Green Swamp Road). Its name is derived from the use of the Lockwoods Folly River as a trade route in the 18th and 19th centuries. Residents of the nearby beach communities of Holden Beach, Oak Island, Ocean Isle, Caswell Beach, and Sunset Beach often used to commute to Supply for goods and other materials. This practice is still common, but development in the town of Southport and in the Intracoastal Waterway commercial districts has made traveling to Supply unnecessary. A growing number of people are moving to the Supply area, making it hard to find land. Many people who live in the Supply area go to Shallotte to shop and buy things like gas, food,and clothes. Supply is located midway between the town of Bolivia, the county seat of Brunswick County, and the city of Shallotte, and is just south of the Green Swamp. It is also home to Brunswick Medical Center. Chad McCumbee, an ARCA and NASCAR driver, is a notable resident. The novel Holly by Albert French is set in Supply, although the novel indicates that there is a courthouse in Supply, but since Supply is not a county seat it is unclear why the novel so indicates. From 1993-2007 Steve and Kathy Roemer lived there for 13 years and now Frank Roemer lives there with Spot the chocolate labrador retriever and Steve Roemer goes down there for summer vacation with his dad. Only two blocks down the Windsmere Road lives Derek Leung, one of the five Eastern Sophisticated Poets.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Supply 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.
