As of the 2000 census, the CDP population was 2,940 (2,475 in Cabell County, 465 in Putnam County). The Cabell County portion of Culloden is part of the Huntington-Ashland, WV-KY-OH Metropolitan Statistical Area, while the Putnam County portion is considered part of the Charleston, WV Metropolitan Statistical Area. The community was named by L. R. White, who lost a leg while working for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In Culloden West Virginia

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.
