The American Lung Association says non smokers who were exposed to asbestos on the job have a five time greater chance of getting lung cancer than individuals who were not exposed
(PRWEB) April 23, 2013
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center is now urging any US citizen who has been now been diagnosed with any type of lung cancer to call them immediately, if the individual was exposed to asbestos in the workplace, and if they are a nonsmoker. The group says, "Most victims of lung cancer in the United States do not know that they might be eligible for significant financial compensation if they were exposed to asbestos at their workplace. For millions of US citizens their workplace was a manufacturing plant, or an industrial facility loaded with asbestos, especially if the worker worked at the facility in the 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. Our initiative is not just about helping victims of a very rare form of cancer called mesothelioma, that is 100% related to exposure to asbestos, this initiative is all about identifying every US citizen, who has been diagnosed with any type of lung cancer, who were also exposed to asbestos in their workplace." If a victim of any type of lung cancer had long term exposure to asbestos in their workplace the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center will direct the victim, or family members to a very capable law firm, that has an established record of achieving superior results for their clients. For more information lung cancer victims, or their family members are urged to call the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center at 866-714-6466.
Important Note From The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center: "The American Lung Association says non smokers who were exposed to asbestos on the job have a five time greater chance of getting lung cancer than individuals who were not exposed. We really need to emphasize as long as a lung cancer victim can prove they had sustained exposure to asbestos at work they may qualify for compensation. At the same time we are trying to assist victims of mesothelioma. For more information about a rare form of cancer called mesothelioma please visit the Mesothelioma Victims Center at 866-714-6466. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, "Because many, to most US Navy Veterans were on navy ships loaded with asbestos twenty four hours a day, frequently for months on end, they have the highest incidence of asbestos related lung cancer, according to the US Veterans Administration. Other high risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include shipyards in Maine, Virginia, Washington, or California, power plants in every US state, manufacturing factories, especially ones in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, or Wisconsin, chemical plants, especially in New Jersey, or Louisiana , oil refineries in Texas, California, Alaska, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Washington, or New Jersey, mines, or smelters in Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Colorado, or West Virginia, aerospace manufacturing facilities in Washington, California, or Kansas, demolition construction work sites nationwide, railroads, automotive manufacturing facilities, or auto brake shops. With lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure the lung cancer may not show up until decades after the exposure. Many victims never smoked, and never made the connection between their lung cancer, and their exposure to asbestos. As long as the victim, or their family members can prove the exposure to asbestos, we will do everything possible to help them get what might be significant financial compensation."
