If you are a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma in Texas, or their family members we are urging you to call us at 866-714-6466 so we can carefully explain to you who are the who's who of mesothelioma compensation attorneys in the Lone Star State
(PRWEB) November 12, 2014
The Texas Mesothelioma Victims Center is calling attention to a recent EPA press release focused on asbestos in schools throughout the state of Texas as one more indication that asbestos is still around, and people are still potentially being exposed in the Lone Star State. Asbestos exposure can lead to a rare form of cancer called mesothelioma.
The Center says, "If you are a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma in Texas, or their family members we are urging you to call us at 866-714-6466 so we can carefully explain to you who are the who's who of mesothelioma compensation attorneys in the Lone Star State. At the same time we would strongly encourage a diagnosed victim, or their family members to call us about Houston's MD Anderson Cancer Clinic, because it may literally be one of the best places on earth to be treated for this rare form of cancer that is caused by asbestos exposure.
We are also calling attention to a October 2014 press release from The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the fact they have awarded the Texas Department of State Health Services a grant to help reduce asbestos exposure in schools. The $124,741 grant will go toward compliance monitoring and assistance, public outreach, inspections, enforcement actions, and ensuring workers are properly trained and accredited. Translation asbestos exposure is still a possibility in Texas, and the EPA is taking it seriously." http://Texas.MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
