The average age age of a US mesothelioma victim is about 72 years old. More often than not, mesothelioma is diagnosed three, four, or even five decades after the exposure to asbestos.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "According to the CDC, automotive mechanics that could have possibly been exposed to asbestos while at work may have handled numerous auto parts that contained asbestos." The following list of auto parts used from the 1950s through the 1980s contained asbestos:
- Brake Pads
- Valve Rings
- Hood Liners
- Heat Seals
The Mesothelioma Victims Center began a public awareness campaign this week for former auto mechanics diagnosed with mesothelioma because the financial compensation claims for these individuals can be among the most significant. This new effort is the result of a recent call the Mesothelioma Victims Center had from the wife of a retired auto mechanic now diagnosed with mesothelioma possibly linked to his line of work that began in the 1950s and went through the 1980s.
About a week ago the Mesothelioma Victims Center heard from the wife of retired 73 year old auto mechanic. She told us that he independently owned and operated an auto repair facility and gas station in Ohio. From the late 1950s until the late 1990s he repaired every imaginable type of car or truck. What the wife did not know is that these types of mesothelioma financial compensation claims often exceed millions of dollars. This is because so many car parts during these decades contained asbestos. The Victims Center immediately put the wife in contact with one of the nation's leading mesothelioma attorneys, who has since spent many days gathering facts about the various auto parts her husband had handled. The center is confident this mesothelioma financial compensation claim will exceed one million dollars. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
