How is it that a country like Scotland with 5.25 million people has nearly the same number of diagnosed victims of mesothelioma as a country with over 300 million
(PRWEB) December 02, 2014
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "A recent publication in a Scottish newspaper details the number of annual mesothelioma deaths that is strikingly similar to the number here in the US. After reading it over, we wanted to point out one major difference between the two countries is the population size. How is it that a country like Scotland with 5.25 million people has nearly the same number of diagnosed victims of mesothelioma as a country with over 300 million?
“In our expert opinion, it comes down to individuals here in the United States failing to tell their primary care physician about the exposure to asbestos or not going to see a doctor at all. We need to emphasize we are talking about exposure to asbestos that most likely occurred in the 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s. We are the most passionate advocates about the best possible compensation for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma in the United States, but we cannot help a victim if they have not been properly diagnosed."
According to the Herald of Scotland in September of 2014, "In Scotland an estimated two million working people suffering from a self-reported work-related or work-caused illness (ill-health accounts for around 99 per cent of work-related deaths each year); around 13,000 work-related deaths each year; 2,535 mesothelioma deaths due to past asbestos exposures."
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center is convinced, and extremely concerned that over one thousand US citizens die from mesothelioma each year without being properly identified. If a victim dies because of mesothelioma but never went to see a doctor about their symptoms, the family they leave behind might not ever learn the true cause of death or ever receive any compensation. Because mesothelioma compensation can range from hundreds of thousands of dollars to over one million dollars, the Center emphasizes how incredibly vital it is that individuals tell their primary care physician about their moderate to heavy exposure to asbestos while at a workplace.
