The Mesothelioma Victims Center is saying, "We are urging families of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, who is elderly, to not let the age of the victim cloud their vision about what could be hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars in financial compensation. We talk to families every week, that are just getting around to looking into mesothelioma compensation possibilities, and most of the time we have to tell them it is too late, because it has been more than a few years. The average age of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old, in many instances that we know of the mesothelioma cancer was initially misdiagnosed as pneumonia. Frequently, the diagnosed victim does not live very long after the actual diagnosis, and this is why we are urging families with an elderly parent, who has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma to call us at 866-714-6466, so we can instantly put the family members in touch with the nation's leading mesothelioma attorneys, who are experts at mesothelioma compensation, and incredibly skilled professionals, who will do their best to make sure the diagnosed victim, and their family members are properly taken care of, from a financial compensation standpoint." The Mesothelioma Victims Center is also very aware of travel issues with respect to diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, so they need to emphasize the extremely skilled mesothelioma attorneys they suggest go to the victim, the victim does not have to go to the attorney. The group also needs to emphasize a face to face meeting with one of these incredibly skilled attorneys, and the diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is vital, because the victim will be able to tell the attorney about where, and when the exposure to asbestos took place, and other critical information, only the diagnosed victim would know. This first hand information from the diagnosed victim is the foundation for a mesothelioma financial compensation claim.
Mesothelioma is an extremely rare form of cancer. According to the US CDC between 2500, and 3000 US citizens are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. Mesothelioma cancer is a result of exposure to asbestos. One third of all US mesothelioma victims served in the US Navy. Other high risk groups for mesothelioma include shipyard, power plant, Chemical plant, or oil refinery workers, plumbers, county, or city municipal water district workers, miners, electricians, demolition contractors, railroad workers, or auto brake technicians. The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Typically the average US mesothelioma victim is in their late 60's, to early 70's years old. More often than not mesothelioma is diagnosed three, four, or even five decades after the exposure to asbestos. For a son, a daughter or a wife trying to get the absolute best information after a mesothelioma diagnosis, the Mesothelioma Victims Center has no equal, and you can call us anytime at 866-714-6466." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
