(PRWEB) November 19, 2014
This Week the Mesothelioma Victims Center is aggressively launching a new initiative focused on helping diagnosed victims of mesothelioma find the time period and location of where possible asbestos exposure took place. This information is important in building a successful case for compensation, and like the professor from the publication, the goal is to spread the word about how difficult it can be to do this without the help of experts.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “The professor at the University of Manitoba has an all to familiar story, with regards to mesothelioma victims. She is not 100% certain where she came in contact with asbestos but has a good idea. The article says, 'Martens believes the asbestos exposure could have happened while studying or working on the U of M campus, but she can't say for sure.' We hear similar stories to this on a weekly basis.
“The center receives calls each week from diagnosed victims or their family members wondering how a loved one could have been exposed to asbestos. With a number of recent news articles about victims not knowing where their exposure to asbestos occurred, the center has decided to create a new service focused on assisting diagnosed victims of mesothelioma determine how/where they may have been exposed to asbestos.”
