Fraziers Bottom is an unincorporated community in Putnam County, West Virginia, United States. The community was named after a family of Fraziers who settled the area in the late 1700s after migrating there from Virginia. The area was attractive as there was abundant and fertile bottom land along the Kanawha River. As the Fraziers took possession of the rich bottom land, the area became known as Fraziers Bottom and the name has stood over the years, but for a brief period of time. A short-tenured postmaster renamed the community Ruby after his wife but the name was reversed soon thereafter. Fraziers Bottom was a quiet, rural area for decades, but that begin to change when Toyota built a manufacturing facility across the river in Buffalo. Affiliated light manufacturing has populated industrial parks in some of the very "bottomland" that gave the community part of its' name. It is apparently the only place in the United States with this name. The ZIP Code for Fraziers Bottom is 25082.

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.
