Mona is a city in Juab County, Utah, United States. It is part of the Provo–Orem, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 850 at the 2000 census. At the time this was sufficient under Utah state law for Mona to become a city, which it did at the end of 2000. Although current state law requires a minimum population of 1000 for cities, Mona remains a city. It is about halfway between Santaquin and Nephi, about 1.6 km (1 mi) west of Interstate 15. The town was originally settled as Clover Creek in 1852, then renamed to Willow Creek, then Starr, before receiving its present name. Burl Ives was once jailed in Mona for singing "Foggy Foggy Dew", because it was considered bawdy by the authorities. One of the unique things about Mona is a farm growing lavender. 120 acres of lavender are planted on the north side of town. Mona also has an annual Lavender Festival.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Mona Utah

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.
