Based on years of experience, we know that about one in three calls we receive about a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma involves a shipyard worker or a US Navy Veteran
(PRWEB) October 28, 2014
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center is sharing a recent announcement from the EPA regarding a Louisiana shipyard and how this shipyard has recently been designated as a Superfund cleanup site. “This news should ring particularly loud for those currently in the shipyard industry and those who are retired shipyard workers with complicated health issues related to asbestos exposure. On September 16th, 2014 the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) added the Delta Shipyard site in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana, to the National Priorities List (NPL) of Superfund sites—this is a list of sites that pose risks to people’s health and the environment. Superfund is the federal program that investigates and cleans up the most complex, uncontrolled or abandoned hazardous waste sites in the country,” says the Mesothelioma Compensation Center.
"Sadly the EPA press release makes no mention of those who worked in this specific shipyard. Based on years of experience, we know that about one in three calls we receive about a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma involves a shipyard worker or a US Navy Veteran. If this is you or your dad, please call us at 866-714-6466 so we can explain how incredibly vital it is to have one of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation attorneys advancing the victim's compensation claim. At the same time we would like to talk about treatment options." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
