Cresson is a city in Hood, Johnson, and Parker counties in the U.S. state of Texas in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. It is located at the intersection of U.S. Route 377 and State Highway 171, seventeen miles southwest of Fort Worth. The Pate Museum is in Parker County in between the two neighborhoods of Bourland Field and Bluebonnet Hills on U.S. Route 377. Incorporated in 2001, Cresson had an estimated population of 756 as of July 1, 2008, according to the United States Census Bureau. The origin of the name has been lost to history. One book suggests the city may have been named after John Cresson, captain of a wagon train that camped in the area before the civil war. A similar story is told that Cresson was named for an official with the Fort Worth and Rio Grande Railroad. Cresson was at one time served by the Fort Worth and Rio Grande, the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe and the Nancy Hanks railroad companies. It has been suggested that Cresson was named for Cresson, Pennsylvania, another city with a strong railroading history. The Granbury Independent School District and the Aledo Independent School District serve area students. Cresson is also home to Motorsport Ranch, the first purpose-built road racing course country club in the USA. http://www. motorsportranch. com

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Cresson Texas

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.
