LASSEN COUNTY, CALIFORNIA OVERVIEW
The Lassen County mesothelioma lawyers represent people who live in and/or who have been exposed to asbestos in Lassen County, California. Formed from parts of neighboring Plumas and Shasta counties, and named after a local, Peter Lassen, Lassen County is located in the north eastern part of California. It is bordered by Modoc County to the north, Shasta County to the west, Plumas County to the south, and the state of Nevada to the east.
Mining and the California Gold Rush are the two defining historical events which shaped the county, in addition to the Nevada-California-Oregon Railway which ran through the county until 1927. The county’s vast forests led to logging becoming a critical industry in the county, and the addition of the railroads facilitated the beginning of the Red River Lumber Company. This also led to the construction of two lumber mills. These events and the natural terrain made the county reliant on farming, mining, and lumber. Today these areas only make up a very small portion of the local economy.
