The people of the town typically enjoy outdoor recreational activities such as hunting, fishing, and riding off-road vehicles. Because of its relative isolation (being more than two hours away from both Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon) and its shortage of career and educational opportunities, a large percentage of people who grow up and go to school in Raymond eventually leave the town to attend college or find jobs in cities with more schools and a more diverse economy. Those who do stay in the town typically retain a strong sense of hometown pride and have an unbreakable sentimentality towards the city's rich forest environment and slow-paced lifestyle.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Raymond Washington

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.
