Huntington Mills is a village located in the northeastern section of the state of Pennsylvania. The village of Huntington Mills is the center of activities in Huntington Township within Luzerne County. Its ZIP Code is 18655. Huntington Mills is named after a signer of the Declaration of Independence, who is rumoured to have stayed in the town, and for the five separate mills which made the town somewhat of a local social center for the agricultural surroundings. The village is very small, although it has in the past maintained its own high school. The "center" of town is marked by a local mom-and-pop general store, the Post Office (built on the foundations of one of the old mills), an elementary school, doctor's office, Christmas tree farm and the volunteer fire company. The town is bisected by one major road, State Route 239, and two creeks - Kitchen Creek (relatively small) and Huntington Creek (a tributary to Fishing Creek). The economy remains agriculturally centered, although the milk farms which proliferated only twenty years ago are in considerable decline. Farmers have begun to prefer growing hay, tomatoes, and feed-corn. There are half a dozen Christmas tree farms within the township itself which have proven successful. One farmer in the area has mown "USA1" into his hillside field, which is clearly visible from the road when entering Huntington Mills from the Wyoming Valley. Huntington Mills is located in the center of Huntington Township, on the western side of Luzerne County. It belongs to the Northwest Area School District.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Huntington Mills Pennsylvania

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.
