The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We received a call last week that was incredibly heartbreaking, and we get these types of call all too often. A widow who lost her husband to mesothelioma phoned us and explained that while her husband was alive, they were against talking to a qualified mesothelioma attorney and pursuing a mesothelioma compensation claim. The widow explained to us that her husband was a US Navy Veteran, and later worked at a chemical plant for nearly three decades. The Center had legal experts examine the possible claim and concluded there was nothing that could be done as five years had passed since his death."
"In this instance the legal experts suggested the mesothelioma compensation claim could have been worth between three and five million dollars. It's phone calls like this that actively push us to get the word out to family members of a diagnosed mesothelioma victim to please call us immediately at 866-714-6466 so we can put you in touch with the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys. These attorneys are the elite of the elite and consistently get the best mesothelioma compensation results for their clients."
Why is the Mesothelioma Victims Center so passionate about diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, or their families, beginning the financial compensation claim's process as soon as possible?
· The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. This year, between 2,500 and 3,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. According to the CDC, mesothelioma is attributable to exposure to asbestos.
· One-third of diagnosed victims of mesothelioma served in the US Navy. Other high-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include: shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, manufacturing workers, maritime workers, factory workers, plumbers, electricians, welders, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s.
· The states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include: Pennsylvania, Maine, New Jersey, West Virginia, Florida, Wyoming, and Washington.
