The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "We get heartbreaking calls almost every week where a family has reached out to us about getting one of the nation's top mesothelioma compensation attorneys. The calls usually begin with the family explaining that their loved one had been sick with what was believed to be pneumonia and then passed away.
"The reason they call our 866-714-6466 hotline is because an autopsy confirmed the cause of death was mesothelioma, not pneumonia. After a few questions we discover the individual worked in a manufacturing or industrial workplace, and/or served in the US Navy decades ago, which is where the possible exposure to asbestos occurred.
So why is the Mesothelioma Compensation Center so focused on mesothelioma latency periods, and individuals who had heavy exposure to asbestos in the workplace?
According to the CDC in January of 2014, "Because of long latency periods (10-40 years), workers exposed to asbestos in the 1960s and 1970s are now manifesting asbestos-associated diseases. Indeed, the mortality of asbestosis, and mesothelioma has increased from the 1960s to 2000. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) data indicates that increased substantially from the 1960s to the 2000s; they are expected to continue occurring for decades."
"If we could impress on every person who served in the US Navy, and or worked in the manufacturing, industrial, construction, or automotive repair industries, and who had moderate to heavy exposure on the job we would say two things:
- Don't be complacent.
- Get an annual chest x-ray that is focused on masses, or benign tumors in the lungs.
"If the chest x-ray reveals a tumor or a mass, and a biopsy confirms it is mesothelioma, please call us immediately at 866-714-7466. Not only do we always provide instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys who will almost immediately travel to the diagnosed victim, we also do everything in our power to see to it the diagnosed victim and their family have almost immediate access to the nation's top mesothelioma treatment specialists." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
