WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "One of the most heartbreaking calls we get almost every week is the call from the wife, adult son, or adult daughter about the fact that their dad died a year or two ago and the doctor mentioned possible mesothelioma, but the family never had an autopsy done.
"If you do not have medical proof that includes a pathology report that confirms mesothelioma, compensation for this rare cancer may not happen. If you or a loved one has recently been told mesothelioma is a possibility, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 so we can explain exactly what you should do." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
If a medical doctor has implicated the possibility of mesothelioma, the Mesothelioma Compensation Center recommends the following:
- "The person should agree to have a biopsy done to confirm a mesothelioma diagnosis."
- "If the pathology report confirms mesothelioma, we urge the diagnosed person or their family to call us immediately so we can arrange for one of the nation's leading mesothelioma to contact you about were exposure to asbestos took place."
- "To get the best possible mesothelioma compensation, it is incredibly vital for the diagnosed person to be alive because only they will know the specific details of how or where they were exposed to asbestos as we would like to discuss anytime at 866-714-6466."
- "If the loved one is suspected of having mesothelioma (by a medical doctor) but the person is too weak to have a biopsy performed, the family should get skilled and experienced attorneys involved and an autopsy should be done when the person passes away." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center specializes in assisting specific types of people who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma. The Center's top priority is assisting US Navy Veterans, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, public-utility workers, chemical plant workers, manufacturing workers, power plant workers, plumbers, welders, electricians, machinists, nuclear power plant workers, hydro-electric workers or oil and gas production workers who have been diagnosed with this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure. In most instances a diagnosed person with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
The states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon. However, a diagnosed person with mesothelioma could live in any state including California, New York, Florida, Texas, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Georgia, Alabama, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.
The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is about 72 years old. This year between 2500, and 3000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. US Navy Veterans comprise about one-third of all-people who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma each year in the United States.
