Why are these services being offered by the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center so vital?
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, "Because many US Navy Veterans were stationed on navy ships twenty-four hours a day, frequently for months on end, these sailors have the highest incidence of asbestos related lung cancer according to the US Veterans Administration. According to the US Centers for Disease control, of the 2,500 to 3,000 individuals who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma this year, about one-third will be US Navy Veterans. This is because asbestos was commonly used on US Navy Ships for many decades." http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
Other high-risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include: shipyards in Maine, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Florida, New York, Connecticut, Virginia, Washington, or California; power plants in every US state; manufacturing factories, especially ones in Ohio, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Indiana, Illinois, or Wisconsin; chemical plants, especially in New Jersey, Illinois, or Louisiana; oil refineries in Texas, California, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Washington, or New Jersey; mines or smelters in Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Colorado, or West Virginia; aerospace manufacturing facilities in Washington, California, or Kansas; construction work sites nationwide; railroads; automotive manufacturing facilities, or auto brake or repair facilities nationwide. The time frame for this exposure would typically have been from the 1950s through the 1980s. http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
With mesothelioma directly related to asbestos exposure, the cancer may not show up until decades after exposure. Many victims never smoked and have possibly never made the connection between their cancer and their exposure to asbestos. As long as the mesothelioma victim, or their family members, can prove the exposure to asbestos, the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center will do everything possible to help the diagnosed victim obtain the best possible financial compensation, and treatment options.
