We are convinced there are nearly ten times as many lung cancer victims, than mesothelioma victims that qualify for the asbestos trust funds
(PRWEB) April 24, 2013
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, "We are trying to help what we estimate to be 20,000 US citizens right now obtain possibly very significant compensation, if they have any type of lung cancer, provided they had significant exposure to asbestos in their workplace. We are convinced there are nearly ten times as many lung cancer victims, than mesothelioma victims that qualify for the asbestos trust funds, so our focus is making certain we identify all lung cancer victims who had significant exposure to asbestos in their workplace. The possible compensation amounts will vary, but we are talking about tens of thousands, to hundreds of thousands of dollars, and we need family members to help us get these lung cancer victims identified." If a victim of any type of lung cancer had long term exposure to asbestos in their workplace the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center will direct the victim, or family members to a very capable law firm, that has an established record of achieving superior results for their clients. For more information lung cancer victims, or their family members are urged to call the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center at 866-714-6466.
Important Note From The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center: "According to the American Cancer Society, "For nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos at their workplace, the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers." According to the US Centers for Disease Control the following US states have the highest incidence of lung cancer, "Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee, West Virginia, Alaska, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Vermont." http://LungCancerasbestosVictimsCenter.Com.
From the Veterans Administration: Health problems associated with exposure to asbestos
Breathing asbestos mainly causes problems in the lungs and the membrane that surrounds the lungs, including:
- Asbestosis – Scarring of lung tissue that causes breathing problems, usually in workers exposed to asbestos in workplaces before the Federal government began regulating asbestos use (mid-1970s).
- Pleural plaques – Scarring in the inner surface of the ribcage and area surrounding the lungs that can cause breathing problems, though usually not as serious as asbestosis. People living in areas with high environmental levels of asbestos, as well as workers, can develop pleural plaques.
- Cancer – The two types of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos are lung cancer and mesothelioma, a cancer of the thin lining surrounding the lung (pleural membrane) or abdominal cavity (the peritoneum). Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer usually caused by asbestos exposure. http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
