The Mesothelioma Victims Center says,"As part of our ever expanding resources for mesothelioma victims we are adding more helpful information, by way of a story, in the hopes of helping as many people as we can avoid the trap of falling prey to disingenuous websites. For more information please call the Victims Center at 866-714-6466 so that we can explain how “quick money” shouldn't be associated with a mesothelioma compensation claim and how websites that have eye-catching words like this are most likely marketing law firms fishing for your information." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
“This last week, the Mesothelioma Victims Center was contacted by a grieving widow of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma. According to her, she and her 75 year old husband did some research on Internet. She told us that they were enticed by a website offering an instant-claim form and decided to fill it out. The law firm then sent them a contract, and they signed it. The two were extremely frustrated when a completely new law firm began to contact them and settled the case for $300, all without ever having gone out to visit the victim to obtain more information about his exposure to asbestos." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "In this particular instance, the diagnosed victim worked at a shipyard in Long Beach, California. After that, the gentleman moved to Pennsylvania and worked at two separate steel plants. After reviewing some of the details to his compensation claim, the Victims Center determined that he had possibly forty years of exposure to asbestos. Legal experts tell us his compensation claim should have been in the millions, and not three hundred dollars."
