Tobyhanna is an unincorporated community in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, United States. From about 1900 to 1936, Tobyhanna lakes were the site of active ice industries. The ice was cut from the lakes during the winter and stored in large barn-like structures. During the rest of the year, the ice was added to railroad boxcars hauling fresh produce and meats destined for East Coast cities. In 1912, Tobyhanna had a railway station, telegraph, and post office, and so the federal government acquired land within Tobyhanna that became the Tobyhanna Military Reservation, later Tobyhanna Army Depot, which was used as an Artillery training ground. In the summer of 1916 Edward B. Reed recorded the following quote about Tobyhanna in The Field Artillery Journal January-March 1917 of the experiences of the Yale Batteries during their training. "The camp at Tobyhanna is on a rocky, treeless crest from which no trace of man is visible. About are mountains and uncultivated valleys. The village of Tobyhanna is interesting only because it contains a station that enables you to leave it. No better place for work could be found. " In recent years, due to its location between the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas, and construction of new homes by developers, many families from these areas decided to move to the Poconos. Many of Tobyhanna's residents choose to commute to the city each day.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Tobyhanna 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.
