In the event an individual has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, the Mesothelioma Victims Center is unsurpassed in the nation when it comes to making certain the victim has instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation lawyers

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "According to a trade publication in the United Kingdom,
twenty trades people die every week from asbestos related diseases as an HSE survey revealed the full extent of construction workers’ exposure to the deadly material. The research, undertaken by Censuswide in September 2014, shows that while more than half knew that asbestos could be in old buildings built before 1970, only 15% knew that it could still be found in buildings built up to the year 2000."

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "These numbers are important factors to workers here in the United States, which is why we wanted to share this article. Extrapolate what is taking place in the UK with the population of the US in mind (which is nearly four times that of the United Kingdom), and its hard not to see how the number of victims would be higher here in the US. We have said it before, and we will say it again, if you were exposed to asbestos at a construction job site or any type of workplace in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s please tell your primary care physician about the exposure, and please have an annual medical checkup that includes an x-ray."
