Alameda County Mesothelioma

Alameda County Mesothelioma Lawyers

Many Alameda County mesothelioma lawsuits arise from asbestos exposure that occurred at various jobsites decades before an actual diagnosis.



The mesothelioma lawyers at Kazan Law handle many cases in Alameda County, which is located in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California.  It runs along the east side of the San Francisco Bay and stretches east through the Livermore Valley to the western edge of California’s Central Valley.



The county population is over 1.6 million people. 

Alameda County is home to many cities and towns.  The largest city and county seat is Oakland, home to about 425,000 people.  Other cities include Berkeley, Alameda, Fremont, Dublin, San Leandro, Hayward, Livermore, Pleasanton, Piedmont, Emeryville, Newark, Union City, and Albany.


Alameda County, California was founded in 1853.  The name “Alameda” in Spanish means “tree lined street.”  The area was named because the river reminded explorers of tree-lined streets in Spain.  The city of Oakland was established as the county seat in 1873.

Many mesothelioma lawsuits involve exposure to asbestos that occurred in the county.  Because Alameda County is located on San Francisco Bay, it includes many ports and harbors, including the Port of Oakland, one of the five busiest shipping ports in the United States.  These ports and shipping facilities historically used a lot of asbestos products and equipment.  The county is also home to many industrial and manufacturing businesses that also used a lot of asbestos products.
