San Francisco County Mesothelioma

San Francisco County Mesothelioma Lawyers

Mesothelioma lawsuits arise from asbestos exposure at worksites and facilities all around the City and County of San Francisco.



The San Francisco mesothelioma lawyers practice in San Francisco County, which is known to be the cultural, commercial, and financial center of Northern California.  The city of San Francisco and its surrounding areas are most commonly known as the San Francisco Bay Area. 



The county population is over 4.7 million people. 

San Francisco is the only consolidated city-county in California.  It is the smallest county in the state in geographical area, yet the city of San Francisco is the second most densely populated major city in the United States.

The settlement of “San Francisco” was founded in 1776.   It was established by the colonists from Spain at the Golden Gate and Mission San Francisco de Asis.  One of the most significant events in the history of San Francisco was the California Gold Rush of 1849, which brought rapid growth, making it the largest city on the West Coast at the time.

San Francisco County mesothelioma lawsuits are handled in the San Francisco County civil court system.  The civil court is located at 400 McAllister St. San Francisco, CA 94102.  There are several departments and divisions, but San Francisco County mesothelioma lawsuits are designated as complex litigation and are handled in the court’s dedicated Asbestos Department, in Department 613.  Plaintiffs in San Francisco County mesothelioma lawsuits are often entitled to preference on the court’s trial calendars, allowing their cases to proceed quickly to trial and resolution.



The San Francisco mesothelioma lawyers at Kazan, McClain, Satterley and Greenwood bring many mesothelioma lawsuits based on exposure to asbestos in the county, in the courts of both San Francisco and other California counties.

Over the years, many mesothelioma lawsuits have arisen from asbestos exposure occurring at worksites in San Francisco County.  According to the California Cancer Registry there were 32 cases of mesothelioma in San Francisco County between 2012-2017.  According to the Environmental Working group, there were a total of 27,080 asbestos-related deaths in California from 1999-2017, 620 deaths in San Francisco County.

San Francisco mesothelioma lawsuits typically involve exposure to asbestos that occurred in the county.  The San Francisco Bay includes many ports and harbors, including Hunters Point Naval Shipyard.  These ports and shipping facilities historically used a lot of asbestos products and equipment.  The county is also home to many industrial, manufacturing businesses, and construction sites, including the well-known Transamerica Building and Bank of America Building at 555 California Street, that also used a lot of asbestos products.
