WASHINGTON, Feb. 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging diagnosed victims of mesothelioma who previously worked in a shipyard environment as a "yardbird", pipe fitter, insulator, electrician, or as a boiler technician, to call 866-714-6466 if they have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, because the compensation for this specific type of work group can be very substantial. These specific type of workers often times have the most exposure to asbestos and the Victims Center wants to make sure every single one of them gets the best possible compensation. If the diagnosed victim is too weak or ill to call on their own, the Center is urging the family members to call them at 866-714-6466 in behalf of the victim. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
According to the Mesothelioma Victims Center, "The compensation for this specific type of mesothelioma victim really can be in the hundreds of thousands, or even millions of dollars, especially if the diagnosed victim also served in the US Navy. We also need to emphasize it is absolutely vital these types of workers have instant access to the nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma compensation attorneys who specialize in handling mesothelioma compensation claims on a nationwide basis."

Important note from the Mesothelioma Victims Center: "We know many former shipyard workers may no longer live in states like California, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Florida, Washington, Maine, or Louisiana. Our initiative is designed to help all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma in all US states, and our number one goal is making certain the diagnosed victim gets the best possible compensation for this rare form of cancer. If you call us at 866-714-6466 you will never get a call center, and we will make certain you and your family members have instant access to the nation's best mesothelioma compensation attorneys. The attorneys we suggest make house call which means that they travel almost immediately to the diagnosed victim's home- the victim does not have to go to the attorney. There is no cost for the attorney visit." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
