The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Mesothelioma is so rare, there is not a large amount of research focused on mesothelioma, or a cure. On a average week we receive phone calls from family members, whose father was diagnosed with mesothelioma , and died prior to talking to a law firm, or mesothelioma attorney, and more often than not there is nothing we can do for them, because too much time has gone by. Today we received a phone call from the daughter of a victim, who lived in Alabama, he had been diagnosed with mesothelioma, he worked in a shipyard, and he had died. This probably was a multi million mesothelioma compensation claim. Unfortunately, the death took place ten years ago. Because so much time had elapsed, compensation for this individual, or his family members is impossible." If a close family member has passed away from mesothelioma, the Mesothelioma Victims Center will coordinate with family members as to what needs to be done immediately to protect the rights of the victim, and the family members. Because the group is not a law firm, this service will include extremely capable national caliber mesothelioma attorneys, who will try to build a compensation claim off the recollections of the family members, as to how, or where the loved one could have been exposed to asbestos. This process typically involves the mesothelioma attorney sitting down with the family, to put together the fact set needed for a mesothelioma compensation claim. The group cannot emphasize enough that time is of the essence for the family members, if this situation has happened to them. Family members dealing with a loss of a loved one to a rare form of cancer called mesothelioma are always encouraged to call the Mesothelioma Victims Center at 866-714-6466.
Important Note from the Mesothelioma Victims Center: "We know some victims of mesothelioma have told their family members they want nothing to do with attorneys. Unfortunately, we also know many families end up with gigantic medical bills, or other costs, that would been taken care of with a mesothelioma compensation settlement. We also know this is an extremely difficult issue for the victim, and ultimately the family, and we are offering to work directly with the diagnosed victim, and their family members, to resolve these issues, or other questions they might have about mesothelioma compensation. The New York Times, or other major papers do not write these types of stories, so we will do everything in our power to get the word out to diagnosed victims, and their family members-before it is too late. Too late is about two years after the mesothelioma diagnosis, if we are talking about compensation." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Centers for Disease Control has produced a mesothelioma information page, and for attribution purposes we have included in this press releases. The CDC indicates high risk groups for mesothelioma cancer include US Navy Veterans, shipyard, power plant, or oil refinery workers, plumbers, electricians, county, or city municipal water district workers, miners, demolition construction workers, railroad repair yard workers, or auto brake technicians, especially if the possible exposure to asbestos took place in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Of this group of people, about one third are Veterans of the US Navy. The states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maine, Washington, and Wyoming.
