Massillon is a city in Stark County in the U.S. state of Ohio. The population was 31,325 at the 2000 census. Massillon, along with neighboring Canton, are principal cities of the Canton–Massillon Metropolitan Statistical Area. The metropolitan area includes all of Stark and Carroll counties. The Friendly Association for Mutual Interests founded Massillon, then called Kendal, on a 2,000-acre (8.1 km) estate in response to Robert Owen's success in New Harmony, Indiana to create a utopian society. The group of approximately 150 people, consisting of farmers, mill workers, and mechanics from the surrounding area, abandoned their communitarian lifestyle. The town center was eventually located along the banks of the Tuscarawas River and the Ohio and Erie Canal. Massillon was named after Jean Baptiste Massillon, a French Catholic bishop. Early in the 20th Century, Massillon was home to a brass era automobile maker, Forest City Motor Car Company; despite its name, the Jewel did not shine, and the company went under. Stark Area Regional Transit Authority (SARTA) provides bus service between Massillon and nearby Canton.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Massillon 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.

Asbestos and mesothelioma litigation are a type of toxic tort litigation.
