The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Within the past week, we've established a new focus on educating building trades workers about asbestos and its link to mesothelioma. The Center acknowledges the estimated figure from the ATSDR as staggering. 1.3 million workers is a large number of people and we want them to know that while the victims center might be the best branded mesothelioma advocate for US Navy Veterans, we are equally passionate advocates for the best possible compensation for all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma in the United States.”
The new focus highlights that all building trades workers with mesothelioma are encouraged to call 866-714-6466, so that the Mesothelioma Victims Center can:
About a week ago the Mesothelioma Victims Center had a riveting phone call from a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, whom at 84 years old, was still working as a plumber. He called the Center to see if US Navy Veterans were the only types of victims the Victims Center helps when it comes to financial compensation for this rare form of cancer. The group replied emphatically that they help all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma.
They had an amazing conversation with this man about his possible sixty years of exposure to asbestos. He told them that when he was a young man, he built and rehabbed US Army barracks after World War II. After that, he worked on several US Army bases for a labor union as an electrical worker and did both commercial and residential jobs through the mid 1960s in Massachusetts. In 1965 he began working as a plumber at a steam plant that created electricity for New York, and in the 1970s he took a job for a school district in Florida maintaining boilers all while doing side jobs as a residential plumber.
Because of the possibility of extreme exposure to asbestos over the decades, the Mesothelioma Victims Center had one of the nation's premier mesothelioma attorneys in the victims home in less than 24 hours. It turned out to be a two day conversation about all the different times and places the victim had held jobs that possibly exposed him to asbestos. The attorney feels that the mesothelioma compensation claim for this individual could be in the millions.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says feels so blessed to know that they get to help diagnosed victims of mesothelioma. they are 100% focused on making certain all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma really do get the best possible compensation. They go the extra mile to make certain these people are connected with the best possible mesothelioma attorneys that are as passionate about mesothelioma compensation as they are. they urge any diagnosed victim or their family members to call them anytime at 866-714-6466, or visit http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.com
Who can get Mesothelioma? Mesothelioma is directly linked to exposure to asbestos. Individuals who served in the US Navy, or as oil refinery workers, ship yard workers, employees of defense contractors, rail road workers, power plant workers, chemical industry workers, automotive repair specialists, construction workers, electricians, plumbers, demolition contractors, were all exposed to asbestos in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. The worst thing about a mesothelioma cancer diagnosis is that it typically comes out of the blue. Frequently, these workers were exposed decades before symptoms similar to pneumonia begin to surface.
The states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include: New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maine, Washington, and Wyoming. However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives, a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma could be in any large state such as New York, California, Florida, Texas, Ohio, Massachusetts, Georgia, Illinois, or Michigan, to the smallest by population such as Montana, North Dakota, Delaware, Rhode Island, or Idaho. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
