The Mesothelioma Compensation Center frequently gets phone calls from manufacturing workers who have no clue how, or where they could have been exposed to asbestos. This week the Center is pointing to a study from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health that indicates that between 1969 and 2000, manufacturing workers had a higher incidence of mesothelioma because of exposure to asbestos at the workplace.
What the Compensation Center would like to explain to diagnosed victims and their family members who call them at 866-714-6466, is the compensation for these types of individuals can be worth over one million dollars provided they have the best possible mesothelioma attorneys.
A January 2014 study from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) examined records from a former IBM plant in Endicott, New York to assess whether occupational exposures at the plant put former workers at risk for job-related mortality and cancer. NIOSH conducted the study at the request of the NY State Department of Health (NYSDOH), Congressional representatives from New York, and community stakeholders.
This study examined available records for 34,494 workers employed at the plant from 1969 to 2001. The study, now available online by the American Journal of Industrial Medicine, found that:
Deaths from some types of cancer (rectal cancer, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, mesothelioma, pleural cancer) were more frequent in some groups of workers than would be expected from the general population. http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/updates/upd-01-06-14A.html
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "What we thought was amazing about this study was it focused in on manufacturing workers at an IBM manufacturing facility, and not the types of workplaces more commonly associated with asbestos exposure, and or mesothelioma.
"Manufacturing or industrial workers who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma are strongly encouraged to call us anytime at 866-714-6466. We also encourage family members to contact the center so that we can instantly get them the contact information for one of the nation's most qualified mesothelioma compensation attorneys. Please don't settle for anything but the absolute best mesothelioma lawyer when considering a mesothelioma compensation claim. Choosing poorly can be an extremely costly mistake as we would like to explain." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
Information About Mesothelioma From The Mesothelioma Compensation Center For Diagnosed Victims And Their Families:
High-risk groups for exposure to asbestos include: the US Navy Veterans, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, manufacturing workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s.
US Navy Veterans account for a significant portion of all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma each year. According to the US Centers for Disease Control the average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. Each year between 2,500 and 3,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is attributable to exposure to asbestos.
According to the CDC the states with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include: Pennsylvania, Maine, New Jersey, West Virginia, Florida, Wyoming, and Washington.
