The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "We receive heartbreaking calls almost every week where a family put off establishing a will and has lost the potential for compensation as a result. This week our message to family members and victims is simple: “Power of Attorney” can also be phrased as—
"The Center wants you to have the knowledge that they both mean the same as “Power of Attorney,” as the legal world often has multiple ways of saying the same thing. We know that the introduction of legal terms in a time of stress from a recent diagnosis can further complicate matters, which is why we are offering this helpful information and a connection to attorneys who specialize in establishing a power of attorney.
“What we want to stress to individuals is to have a power of attorney or will in place. Helping a family obtain these is what our attorneys specialize in. Our goal is to help every diagnosed victim of mesothelioma in the United States by providing them instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys.
"As we would like to explain, having all of the bases covered includes have a trusted family member who has been designated with power of attorney for the victim. Trust us, when it comes to mesothelioma, you definitely need the best attorneys. You also need a will, and the victim must designate a trusted family member with power of attorney so the victim's estate can be managed in the event the victim can no longer manage it on their own."
