We are certain there are hundreds of families each year that do not proceed with a financial compensation claim for mesothelioma, after the loss of a loved one
(PRWEB) December 05, 2013
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging families who have just lost a loved one to the extremely rare form of lung cancer called mesothelioma, to not give up on compensation. The group says, "We are certain there are hundreds of families each year that do not proceed with a financial compensation claim for mesothelioma, after the loss of a loved one. If a family has found themselves in this tragic situation we will do everything possible to see to it they instantly have access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation attorneys. Mesothelioma claims involving US Navy Veterans, industrial, or manufacturing workplaces, typically result in settlements in the hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars. The only caveat for these types of compensation claims is that in most instances it must be less than two years since the diagnosed victim passed away." Families of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma are urged to contact the Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Vital Things A Family Must Focus In On If They Have Lost A Loved One To Mesothelioma Before Filing A Mesothelioma Financial Compensation Claim:
- Call the Mesothelioma Victims Center at 866-714-6466 for instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation attorneys.
- Make a list of all of the workplaces where the family member may have been exposed to asbestos. If you are uncertain what industries are likely to have put your loved one in possible contact with asbestos, call the Mesothelioma Victims Center for more information.
- Prepare a list of coworkers, along with their contact information if possible because they could be witnesses to the exposure to asbestos. The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We cannot emphasize how vital it is to have witnesses to the exposure to asbestos, when it comes to financial compensation for this very rare form of cancer. Having a coworker witness, or witnesses, could add hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars in financial compensation for the family."
- Do not wait too long. The compensation window, or families of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma may only be two, or in some states three years. If a family waits too long there could be no compensation.
Who is at risk for Mesothelioma? Mesothelioma is linked to exposure to asbestos. Individuals who served in the US Navy, or worked as an oil refinery worker, ship yard worker, employee of defense contractor, rail road worker, power plant worker, steel mill worker, chemical industry worker, automotive repair specialist, construction worker, plumber, electrician, demolition contractor, were all exposed to asbestos in the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s. Tragically, one-third of all US mesothelioma victims served in the United States Navy.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "The worst thing about a mesothelioma cancer diagnosis is typically it comes out of the blue. Frequently, an individual served in the US Navy, worked in a power plant, an oil refinery, or a shipyard decades ago, they get pneumonia type symptoms, it does not get better, and the doctors finally figure out its mesothelioma. Unfortunately the diagnosis comes so late the family is left wondering what to do. Individuals, or families dealing with a mesothelioma diagnosis, or the loss of a loved one to mesothelioma are encouraged to contact the Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466 for their unparalleled services. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
