For there to be a viable mesothelioma compensation claim there must be an actual written diagnosis from a medical doctor that includes a pathology report indicating mesothelioma
(PRWEB) October 02, 2013
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center has developed a compensation to-do list for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma or asbestos related exposure lung cancer victims. If a diagnosed victim or their family members are concerned about proper compensation, the following issues must be addressed:
- For there to be a viable mesothelioma compensation claim there must be an actual written diagnosis from a medical doctor that includes a pathology report indicating mesothelioma.
- For diagnosed victims of lung cancer, before a compensation claim can begin, there must be medical records that indicate asbestos scaring in a pathology report.
- Because the typical diagnosed victim of mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer victim is between the ages of 60 and 70, it is vital the family have written records of workplaces where the victim could have been exposed to asbestos. In the instance of US Navy Veterans, this should include the victims job classification(s) such as: machinist mate, damage control, fireman, etc.
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, "We fear most diagnosed victims of mesothelioma or related lung cancer victims, exposed to asbestos at work, rarely seek out proper compensation. The Center aims to do everything possible to change this. From a decade of experience, we believe US Navy Veterans are the one group most often shortchanged. Financial compensation for mesothelioma can range from hundreds of thousands, up to millions of dollars. Compensation for a lung cancer asbestos exposure victim can range from the tens of thousands, up to hundreds of thousands of dollars. These figures are relative to the amount of exposure to asbestos. This is why we encourage any diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, workplace asbestos exposure victim, or their family members concerned for a loved one to call us anytime at 866-714-6466."
According to the Veterans Administration the states with the largest number of US Navy Veterans include: California, Florida, Texas, New York , Washington, Virginia, Maine, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Hawaii, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, North Carolina, Georgia, Louisiana, Missouri, Michigan, Maryland, Indiana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Mexico, Colorado, Montana, North Carolina, Nevada, North Dakota, Arizona, New Mexico, Wyoming, Idaho, Oregon, and Alaska. http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
According to the CDC, aside from the US Navy, other high risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include shipyards, power plants, manufacturing factories, chemical plants, oil refineries, mines, smelters, aerospace manufacturing facilities, demolition construction work sites, railroads, automotive manufacturing facilities, or auto brake shops.
With mesothelioma or related lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure, the cancer may begin to show symptoms decades after exposure. As long as the victim or their family members can provide sufficient evidence of exposure to asbestos, the center will do everything possible to help them get what might be significant financial compensation. Included in this service is instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys, or asbestos exposure law firms.
