"For the first time ever the Mesothelioma Victims Center is beginning an outreach-to-retired-workers program for anyone who may have been exposed to asbestos while working at a nuclear power plant. Because of the incredible amount of asbestos used in many former power plants, the amount of compensation involved if a former worker has been diagnosed with mesothelioma could be staggering. This is why we urge anyone who used to work for a nuclear power plant that worked in an environment that contained asbestos to reach out and call 866-714-6466 for more information."
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "This last weekend we received a phone call from a 78 year old retired plumber, who had worked at a number of nuclear power plants. He began working at these plants in Maine after serving in the US Navy aboard a nuclear submarine. He was involved in decommissioning nuclear power plants at numerous different facilities across the United States. His job meant that his exposure to asbestos was extreme which began in the 1960s and concluded in the mid 1990s. We spent two hours talking to him about all of the nuclear power plants he helped decommission and then spent another two hours assembling a team of the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys to represent him and his family with respect to his compensation claim. We gathered the best nuclear power plant mesothelioma attorneys who specialize in possible multi-million dollar financial compensation claims, for this amazing man. What an amazing honor." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
Because nuclear power workers are in a different category from other workers, who were exposed to asbestos, and now have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, the Mesothelioma Victims Center's new approach with these types of workers include an interview process where the Mesothelioma Victims Center will try to determine how much of the nuclear power plant worker's daily routines were in areas deemed to be classified by the US government. Obtaining the specifics of this type of information may require of Freedom of Information Act request.
"If you are a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma that worked at a nuclear power plant, hydro electric, or coal fired power plant between 1950 and 1990, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 for the most current information about compensation, and treatment options, or contact us via our web site." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
States with decommissioned nuclear power plants include Michigan, Florida, Illinois, Colorado, California, Connecticut, New York, Wisconsin, Maine, Virginia, South Dakota, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Washington, and Massachusetts.

Aside from nuclear power plant workers, other high risk groups for mesothelioma cancer include US Navy Veterans, shipyard, power plant, or oil refinery workers, plumbers, chemical manufacturing facility workers, electricians, county, or city municipal water district workers, miners, carpenters, pipe fitters, electricians, welders, demolition construction workers, railroad repair yard workers, or auto brake technicians, especially if the worker was exposed to asbestos in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s.
“Our number one goal is the best possible financial compensation for all US citizens who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma. In order to achieve this goal we instantly offer a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, or their family members the names and contact information for the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys. Because the average age of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is about 72 years old and because they are frequently very ill, we strongly encourage family members to call us anytime at 866-714-6466. More than 50% of the mesothelioma victims we help were first introduced to the center by the a loving family member." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
