The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, "We are certain most people have heard about mesothelioma, asbestos, and significant financial compensation for this rare form of cancer. Unfortunately, we fear perhaps thousands of lung cancer victims each year succumb to their disease without knowledge that they could have also been eligible for compensation from the Asbestos Trust Funds if they had long term exposure to asbestos at work. For these reasons we are launching a campaign to better educate diagnosed victims of mesothelioma or any type of lung cancer."
According to the CDC, "More people in the United States die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. This is true for both men and women. In 2009 (the most numbers available).
The group is urging lung cancer victims who had long term exposure to asbestos while at work, or a family member of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, to call the victims center for on-the-spot access the nation's most competent mesothelioma attorneys or asbestos exposure law firms. On a consistent basis these extremely skilled legal specialists achieve better financial compensation settlements for their clients. For more information, victims of mesothelioma, or asbestos exposure lung cancer victims are encouraged to contact the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466 or visit http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
"According to the CDC, high risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include: the US Navy, shipyards in California, Virginia, Maryland, Louisiana, or Washington, power plants in Massachusetts, Florida, Pennsylvania, or Missouri, manufacturing factories in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, or Illinois, chemical plants in Louisiana, or New Jersey, oil refineries in California, or Texas, smelters in West Virginia, Montana, or Idaho, aerospace manufacturing facilities in California, Washington, or Kansas, demolition construction sites, railroads repair yards, automotive manufacturing facilities, or auto brake shops, especially if the exposure to asbestos took place in the 1950s, through the 1980s. http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
One unfortunate aspect to mesothelioma and lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure, is that it often takes decades for cancer to manifest and begin to show signs. Many mesothelioma victims have never picked up a cigarette, nor do they make the connection between asbestos exposure and cancer. As long as the victim or their family members can prove evidence that exposure to asbestos took place, we will do everything possible to help them get significant financial compensation."
