Middlesex County is located in central-northern New Jersey. The county has a population of about 809,900. According to the 2000 census, the county was ranked 63 in the United States in regard to median household income. Middlesex County is also home to various educational institutions including Rutgers University, Devry University and Middlesex County College.
The Middlesex County seat is the city of New Brunswick. Therefore, New Brunswick is where the Middlesex County Superior Court is located. The Superior Court in Middlesex hears all personal injury and accident cases which are properly brought in the county. In addition to personal injury and accident cases, Middlesex County is also the location of the central asbestos docket. This means that all asbestos injury claims which arise in the state of New Jersey are heard in Middlesex County.
Though proving an asbestos case is similar to proving a personal injury case in that the injured person must show the defendant owed a duty to the injured person and the defendant breached this duty and therefore caused damage; proving that the breach of duty caused the damage may in some circumstances be more challenging in an asbestos matter.
Typically, the injury that results from the inhalation of asbestos fibers is a disease called mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a cancer of the lining of the lungs. It is well established that the inhalation of asbestos fibers does cause mesothelioma, however, in order to be successful in an asbestos injury case, the plaintiff (or injured person) must show that the person who developed mesothelioma was inhaling asbestos fibers which were emanating from a specific identifiable product. Because asbestos was typically used before the 1970’s, in some cases it may be difficult to uncover evidence of asbestos exposure taking place from specific products manufactured by defendants which are still in business today.
