The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Because the average age of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 and a large percentage of those victims are US Navy veterans, we wanted to highlight the top six US Navy job classifications we hear about most." This list was assembled in the hopes of educating family members of a diagnosed victim, the possibility that their veteran might have been exposed to asbestos during their tour of duty with the US Navy. The top six job classifications they hear about the most are:
“The second we hear the word mesothelioma, and these types of US Navy job descriptions, we quickly try to gather more information, especially if the diagnosed victim served in the US Navy during the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s. According to the CDC, during these periods of time all US Navy ships contained asbestos."
The vital tips offered to all families of a US Navy Veteran diagnosed with mesothelioma are knowing what the type of work the loved one did on a US Navy ship, and where the ship was stationed, or if a overhaul took place, and where. The answers to these types of questions are essential in gathering sufficient evidence for achieving the best possible mesothelioma compensation. The Mesothelioma Victims Center is unwavering in their commitment to making certain all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma get the best possible financial compensation. Diagnosed mesothelioma victims or their family members can contact the group anytime at 866-714-6466 or they can contact the group via their web site. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
From the 1950s through the 1980s, major US Navy bases or shipyards were located in New York, Virginia, Maine, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida, Maryland, Michigan, California, Washington, and Hawaii. The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "About half of the diagnosed victims of mesothelioma we talk to possibly came into contact with asbestos while serving in the US Navy, US Air Force, US Army, or the US Marine Corps. Because of the skills they learned while serving the country, frequently these individuals went onto reuse the same set of skills in the private sector; possibly in a shipyard, as a plumber, as an electrician, as a pipefitter, or as a machinist. There are currently 20 million US Navy Veterans. They could be in any state from Ohio, to Oregon, Massachusetts to Montana, North Carolina, to Nevada, etc. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
