“This week we are asking all victims of mesothelioma to take an extra step. It's a small and easy step that only involves writing down a list of helpful information that makes the compensation claim's process all that much easier on everyone involved. We've put together a helpful list of things to include on this list and stress that it is this vital information that becomes the foundation for a mesothelioma financial compensation claim,” says the Mesothelioma Victims Center.
For more information a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, or their family members, are urged to call the Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466.
Suggested Items That Need To Be On A Written List That Specify An Individual's Exposure To Asbestos, According To The Mesothelioma Victims Center:
- The name of anyone involved: this could be a manager, co-worker who saw the potential exposure to asbestos, or any witness.
- The address of a workplace where the diagnosed victim might have been exposed to asbestos. If possible, write down specifics such as the name of the ship(s) they served on during the time period the CDC acknowledges asbestos was used.
- For Us Navy Veterans, we suggest writing down the names of shipyards where the ship you were stationed or was located while during their active duty.
- Any equipment you may have worked on that contained asbestos while in the workplace.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We do everything in its power to make certain every diagnosed victim of mesothelioma in the US has the most skilled and capable mesothelioma compensation attorneys working on their behalf.
“Before the attorney actually goes to the victim to have a face-to-face conversation about their exposure to asbestos, we want to help everyone involved get organized so the attorney can get as much information as possible about the victim's exposure to asbestos. This type of organization is paramount to a successful compensation claim—potentially leading to a large amount of compensation."
