The Mesothelioma Victims Center believes it is not all that uncommon for US Navy veterans to use the skills they learned while serving the country, in their civilian life after service. They just learned of a Veteran who was only doing what he knew best. Unfortunately this meant that over the decades of working at a shipyard, or for different defense contractors, this man was possibly being exposed to asbestos on a daily basis. The Center found the phone call from his family to be an inspiration. Within 48 hours they had one the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys in this Veteran's home.
“His story has also motivated us to reach out to any veteran of the same circumstance. The hope being to educate any diagnosed victim that if they have worked in similar conditions to this man, to call 866-714-6466 or visit http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com to learn how to begin a mesothelioma compensation claim that could potentially be worth millions of dollars. We can't stress enough the caliber of the attorneys we suggest. Their decades of experience means that they have the skills necessary to achieve the hbest possible mesothelioma compensation. Don't be roped in by a television ad for mesothelioma attorneys," says the Mesothelioma Victims Center.
The phone call took place last week. "We had the privilege of talking to a US Navy Veteran, who served as a machinist mate on board a Farragut class US Navy Destroyer from 1963, to 1968. The victim was left on board his ship on two occasions for major overhauls. Once in Long Beach California and the second in the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard. His exposure to asbestos was extreme as his duty station was in the engine room. After the navy, this gentleman held the civilian position of “yardbird” for two years at a major US Navy shipyard. This position meant he was involved in the overhaul of nearly a dozen US Navy ships."
After the US Navy and the shipyard, this victim of mesothelioma spent the rest of his professional career as a machinist for a major aircraft manufacturer in California, Washington, and Kansas. This man potentially accumulated over thirty years of exposure to asbestos. The Center believes it to be a miracle his daughter found them on the Internet, after doing a Google search for mesothelioma financial compensation. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer. According to the US CDC between 2,500 and 3,000 US citizens are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. Mesothelioma cancer is a result of exposure to asbestos. One third of all US mesothelioma victims served in the US Navy. Other high risk groups for mesothelioma include shipyard, power plant, Chemical plant, or oil refinery workers, plumbers, county, or city municipal water district workers, miners, electricians, demolition contractors, railroad workers, or auto brake technicians.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "The average US mesothelioma victim ranges from the age of 60 to the age of 80. More often than not, mesothelioma is diagnosed three, four, or even five decades after the exposure to asbestos. For a son, a daughter or a wife trying to get the absolute best information after a mesothelioma diagnosis, including the names of the most skilled mesothelioma law firms in the nation when it comes to financial compensation, the Mesothelioma Victims Center has no equal. Call us anytime at 866-714-6466." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
