French Creek is an unincorporated community in Upshur County, West Virginia, United States of America. French Creek is nine and half miles south of the county seat, Buckhannon, West Virginia, on West Virginia Route 20. It is home to the West Virginia State Wildlife Center, formerly the "French Creek Game Farm", a zoological park featuring native and introduced fauna. Popular exhibits at the center include American bison and mountain lions. The French Creek settlement was formed in the early 19th century by a number of New England presbyterians. Family names from these settlers include Gould, Young, Phillips, Burr, Sexton, Brooks, and Loomis. The community's first post office, the second established in the county, arrived in 1822. It was named for the village's principal stream — French Creek — a tributary of the Buckhannon River watershed. The village was also referred to as Meadeville, as it is located in the magisterial Meade District.

Asbestos And Mesothelioma Litigation Lawyers In French Creek 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.
