If a person has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, or a family has concerns about mesothelioma compensation they should call the Mesothelioma Victims Center immediately at 866-714-6466
(PRWEB) September 12, 2013
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is now offering this new service for potential victims of mesothelioma that includes coordinating a second opinion for the victim or their family members if:
- The person has been diagnosed with lung cancer and had significant exposure to asbestos at their workplace.
- The person is too old, or too weak to have a simple surgical procedure done to examine tissue from the lungs. Sometimes in rare instances the abdomen.
- The doctors told the victim or family it could be mesothelioma.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "The key to this new service for possible victims of mesothelioma is speed and a rapid, well organized response. We want these families to call us at 866-714-6466, so we can try and help."
"We get calls every week from a wife, a son, or a daughter asking about mesothelioma compensation. We typically have to explain there is not much hope for compensation without an actual diagnosis of mesothelioma." If a person has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, or a family has concerns about mesothelioma compensation, they should call the Mesothelioma Victims Center immediately at 866-714-6466 or visit http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
On a recent call the wife of a cancer victim mentioned that every one of her husband's coworkers had died from mesothelioma. In this instance they were all maintenance workers at a power plant in Illinois. Unfortunately, in this case the victim had been sent to a nursing home because of mobility issues. He was 74 years old. The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Even though the family visited the victim almost daily, no one had a clue he was sick. One day the family received notice that their loved one had been admitted to the hospital for pneumonia. The victim was prescribed antibiotics and sent back to the nursing home. After other tests were done, the victim's attending physician told the family about a mass on his lung and that he had cancer. The victim died a month later. No autopsy, no biopsy, and possibility of compensation for the victim."
Because a mesothelioma compensation claim can be worth hundreds of thousands, or millions of dollars, the group is urging diagnosed victims or their family members to call them for instant help, that is focused on compensation. In the event a doctor has told the family the loved one could have mesothelioma, the Victims Center is urging the family to call them at 866-714-6466, so the group can develop a plan for an actual diagnosis.
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer. According to the CDC between 2,500 and 3,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma this year. Mesothelioma is a direct result of exposure to asbestos. The average age of a victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. The typical diagnosed victim was exposed to asbestos between thirty and fifty years ago.
