Rhododendron is an unincorporated community in Clackamas County, Oregon, United States. It is located within the Mount Hood Corridor, between Government Camp and Zigzag along U.S. Route 26. It is one of the communities that make up the Villages at Mount Hood. According to Oregon Geographic Names, a post office was established in the area in 1909 and named "Rowe", after a mayor of Portland, Oregon, Henry S. Rowe. The community was renamed Rhododendron in 1920, (after being named "Zig Zag" and "Zigzag", a name that was then reused for the current community of Zigzag) because of the large number of rhododendrons growing near there.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Rhododendron Oregon

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.
