Share Article

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center is calling attention a recent news article about asbestos exposure in a small Pennsylvania town that openly talks about secondhand asbestos exposure and mesothelioma because as the center would like to explain, these types of cases can have very high levels of compensation for the diagnosed victim. Contact the Center at 1-866-714-6466 to hear how, as a result of this data, the University of Pennsylvania will be conducting research on how people are exposed, and investigate why some get mesothelioma and others don't. http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com

The skill of the mesothelioma compensation attorney matters, especially when it comes to a compensation claim based on secondhand exposure of the victim

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "We recently came across a news article about a town in Pennsylvania that talked about asbestos exposure. One thing jumped out at us immediately—the mentioning of secondhand exposure to asbestos. What will be taking place over the next four years is exciting news. According to the article, 'The University of Pennsylvania's Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology has received a $10 million federal grant to seek answers.'

“According to the article, another surprising trend arose from the current data on the town. 'The rate of mesothelioma in Ambler was greater for women than for men. Presumably, men in the factories would have had higher occupational exposure. Women would have been exposed to a lesser degree by, say, asbestos dust brought home on their husbands' clothes.' We here at the center are excited to share this article for those interested in knowing more about mesothelioma.”

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center is a national leader in compensation for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma. They are urging diagnosed victims of mesothelioma and/or their family members to call 866-714-6466 before retaining the services of a law firm to advance a mesothelioma compensation claim. The skill of the mesothelioma compensation attorney matters, especially when it comes to a compensation claim based on secondhand exposure of the victim.
