Share Article

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "We get too many calls each week from family members of a loved one who was suspected of having mesothelioma, but never have had a biopsy or autopsy done to confirm it really was mesothelioma. That is why as of this week the Mesothelioma Compensation Center would like to explain with one call to 866-714-6466, that without medical documentation such as a biopsy, pathology report, or an autopsy that confirms a diagnosis of mesothelioma, it is almost impossible for a diagnosed victim or their family to obtain compensation for mesothelioma."

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, “Every week we focus on a new topic to educate diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, so this week we want to talk about how important it is to get a proper diagnosis before pursuing compensation. A proper diagnosis of mesothelioma is crucial to a successful compensation claim. The victim, or a family member acting on behalf of a victim too ill to make the decision on their own, needs to order a biopsy or pathology report to confirm mesothelioma is present. From there, we want someone involved to reach out to the Center at 866-714-6466 so we can go over the details of beginning a compensation claim. It is not until mesothelioma is confirmed that a claim can begin so please keep this in mind.

“One common mistake we see families make is putting off ordering one of these tests. We want everyone involved with a potential mesothelioma diagnosis to know that if a loved one has passed and the physician suggested that mesothelioma might have been to blame, there is only a small window of time to order an autopsy.”

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "If a medical doctor has suggested to a family the possibility of mesothelioma, but the individual is too weak or sick to have a biopsy done please call us immediately at 866-714-6466 so we can give the family very specific instructions on what must be done to preserve their possible compensation. Aside from what could be extremely significant compensation, we do not want a family stuck with huge medical bills or related costs if the individual actually has mesothelioma." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
