The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are now placing a huge emphasis on getting family members involved with helping a loved one who is dealing with a mesothelioma diagnosis. In two seperate calls this week we had to tell families of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma it was too late for compensation. We are now urging family members to step up to the plate for their loved one, before the window for compensation closes. Have we talked about mesothelioma, and timelines for compensation before? Yes. Based on the two calls we had this week we are repeating the message, as vital. The average age of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old."
Losing out on mesothelioma compensation does not have to happen. About a week ago the Mesothelioma Victims Center was contacted by the daughter of a just diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, who had initially been diagnosed with pneumonia. Her dad was 69 years old and lived in Ohio, and the daughter lives in California. The victim's wife had died years ago, so the daughter was trying to help her father, and determine if compensation was possible. The Victims Center immediately did some research on their own, found this man's best friend, and they were able to put together a very complete work history for the victim. Simultaneous to this the Victims Center suggested to the daughter one of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation attorneys, who is now in the process of developing what they expect to be a multi million dollar mesothelioma financial compensation claim for the victim, and his family. The diagnosed victim was a forty year Veteran of the US Navy, and after the navy he worked for a foundry in Ohio. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
Why does the Mesothelioma Victims Center mention families, or family member so frequently in their press releases? The group says, "Because the typical diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is in the late stages of this aggressive form of cancer we need the adult son, the adult daughter, or the victims wife to act for them. We really are extremely passionate about making certain all diagnosed victims in the US get the best possible compensation, but in most cases we need family members to help us, help the victim, and family members can call us anytime at 866-714-6466." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
In this particular instance a family member of a US Navy Veteran called the Victims Center. The Mesotheloma Victims Center has heard from diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, who served in the US Navy, or were exposed to asbestos while serving in the US Navy for nearly a decade. The states where they have heard from the most US Navy Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma include: California, Florida, New York, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington, Virginia, Illinois, Michigan, Arizona, West Virginia, Hawaii, Maine, North Carolina, Maryland, Georgia, Idaho, Nevada, New Jersey. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
Who can get Mesothelioma? Mesothelioma is 100% linked to exposure to asbestos. Individuals who served in the US Navy, or as a oil refinery worker, ship yard worker, worked as an employee of defense contractors, a rail road worker, a power plant worker, a chemical industry worker, a automotive repair specialist, a construction worker, a plumber, a electrician, a welder, a pipe fitter, a demolition construction employee, would have all been exposed to asbestos in the 1940's, 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, and 1980's.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "The worst thing about a mesothelioma cancer diagnosis is typically it comes out of the blue. Frequently, an individual served in the US Navy, worked at a power plant, a oil refinery, or a shipyard decades ago, they get pneumonia type symptoms, it does not get better, and the doctors finally figure out its mesothelioma." Individuals, or families dealing with a mesothelioma diagnosis, or living with mesothelioma are encouraged to contact the Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466 for their unparalleled free services. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
