If a medical doctor tells a family they suspect mesothelioma as a source for the suffering but the individual is too sick or too weak to have a biopsy done, please call the Mesothelioma Victims Center immediately at 866-714-6466, and they will do the following:
The Mesothelioma Victims Center will also see to it that the family has proper wills, trusts, and a power of attorney in place, in the event a mesothelioma diagnosis is confirmed. No other group in the nation offers this vital service.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Within the last week we've had three nearly identical calls where a family was told by the oncologist that mesothelioma was suspected, but the victim was too weak or too sick to have a biopsy done. In all three cases the loved one passed away, and was buried. Sadly we had to inform them that it was next to impossible to help them with compensation. Without a biopsy, or autopsy confirming mesothelioma there is no compensation for the victim, or their family." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The group says, “In two instances, the victims were US Navy Veterans exposed to asbestos on US Navy ships, and both went on to work in a factory or an oil refinery where they were possibly exposed to more asbestos. In the third example, the individual was a lifelong electrician working on commercial buildings since the 1950s. His line of work meant that he was possibly exposed to asbestos insulation for nearly 50 years. Had mesothelioma been diagnosed after a biopsy or an autopsy, these families would all be looking at a multiple-million dollar mesothelioma compensation claims. As it sits right now, they are looking at zero compensation." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "In our opinion, hundreds of individuals die from mesothelioma each year without ever receiving a proper diagnosis. Again, if a medical doctor says they suspect mesothelioma, families should call the Mesothelioma Victims Center immediately at 866-714-6466. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
Who is at risk for Mesothelioma? According to the CDC, Mesothelioma is 100% linked to exposure to asbestos. Individuals who served in the US Navy, or as a oil refinery worker, ship yard worker, worked as an employee of defense contractors, a rail road worker, a power plant worker, a chemical industry worker, a factory worker, a automotive repair specialist, a construction worker, a plumber, a electrician, a welder, a pipe fitter, a demolition construction employee, would have all been exposed to asbestos in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says,"The worst thing about a mesothelioma cancer diagnosis is typically it comes out of the blue. Frequently an individual was exposed to asbestos many decades ago and develops pneumonia type symptoms which never get better. With luck the doctors take a closer look, and they discover it is mesothelioma." Individuals or families dealing with a mesothelioma diagnosis, or living with mesothelioma, are encouraged to contact the Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466 for their unparalleled free services. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
"According to the US Centers for Disease Control the top seven states for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma include Maine, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Florida, Washington, and Wyoming. Other large concentrations of victims we help worked in manufacturing in the Midwest in states such as: Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, Kansas, Missouri, or Wisconsin,” says the Mesothelioma Victims Center. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
