even worse, we fear that up to double the actual mesothelioma fatalities go unreported each year, because the mesothelioma patient never sees the doctor, the victim never gets the correct diagnosis, or the patient has no health care coverage-so they never even see a doctor.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 1, 2009
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is a leading national advocate for US victims of mesothelioma. After a close family member was diagnosed with mesothelioma, Americas Watchdog created the Mesothelioma Victims Center to be a free safety net for victims, or loved ones looking for answers after a US Navy Veteran, or US citizen has been diagnosed with this asbestos related rare form of cancer. The group says,"we want to insure that the mesothelioma victim, or their loved ones get nothing but the best, including who are the absolute most capable law firms in the US to handle these complex legal issues. The expanded service includes what treatment options are available for a victim in their area, and cutting through VA, or Social Security Administration red tape. We do all of this for free, because its the right thing to do, for the victim & their loved ones." For more information on how the Mesothelioma Victims Center can help a mesothelioma victim, or their loved ones, call 866-714-6466, or contact the group via its web site at Http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
Who Can Get Mesothelioma:
One third of all U.S. mesothelioma victims served in the U.S. Navy between 1930 & 1980.
U.S. Navy or ship yard workers who worked in the following shipyards should be tested for asbestosis: California : U.S. Naval Shipyard at Mare Island, U.S. Naval Shipyard at San Francisco, and the U.S. Naval Shipyard at San Francisco Bay. The San Francisco Naval Shipyard was also known as Hunters Point Naval Shipyard and Treasure Island Naval Station Hunters Point Annex, & Long Beach California. Washington State had the Todd Shipyards & the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton, WA. On the East Coast there is Norfolk & Portsmouth Naval Shipyards.
Mesothelioma cancer is a result of asbestos exposure. Individuals who worked in mines, oil refineries, ship yard workers, carpenters, plumbers, boiler room technicians construction demolition, auto brake repair professionals, HVAC technicians, and others who were exposed to asbestos can get mesothelioma.
Note: The Mesothelioma Victims Center will try to help Filipino nationals who were exposed to asbestos while working at the US Naval Base in Subic Bay, and have since contracted mesothelioma.
Note: The Mesothelioma Victims Center is warning US Navy veterans, or US citizens who may have been exposed to asbestos, to get annual screenings. The group says,"frequently mesothelioma victims are initially told they have pneumonia. The doctor prescribes antibiotics, & the patient does not get better. It typically takes a really sharp radiologist, to see the problem." They are saying, "even worse, we fear that up to double the actual mesothelioma fatalities go unreported each year, because the mesothelioma patient never sees the doctor, the victim never gets the correct diagnosis, or the patient has no health care coverage-so they never even see a doctor."
Why is credibility important before a mesothelioma victim or their family runs out, and attempts to find a mesothelioma lawyer?
Answer: Americas Watchdog has been featured on CNN, NPR, and in Newsweek Magazine, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Good Housekeeping Magazine, Money Magazine and numerous other national & international publications. According to the group, "Don't think you will find your mesothelioma lawyer on the Internet or the yellow pages. Many Internet sites are little more than marketing devises from law firms, that simply want to sell a mesothelioma lawsuit to the highest bidder. In other words they do not actually do the case. We got into this to make sure a mesothelioma victim & their family gets the absolute best legal choices, and we will help a victim and their family in every other way possible."
