Lucas is a village in Richland County, Ohio, United States. Lucas was founded in 1836, and is part of the Mansfield, Ohio Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 620 at the 2000 census. In 1945, Lucas was made famous as the location of Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall's wedding. They were married on May 21 at Malabar Farm, the country home of Pulitzer Prize-winning author Louis Bromfield, who was a close friend of Bogart's. The wedding was held in the Big House. In 1994, numerous clips from the movie The Shawshank Redemption were filmed in Lucas at Malabar Farm. These clips include the scene at the beginning of the movie where Andy is parked outside his home contemplating murdering his wife (filmed outside of Pugh Cabin), and the oak tree and rock wall scene where Red finds the box from Andy under the black rock. The oak tree is clearly visible from Bromfield Road, and the adjacent rock wall is still standing to this day.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Lucas Ohio

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.
