WASHINGTON, Feb. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Compensation Center is now urging the family of a person diagnosed with mesothelioma to call them anytime at 866-714-6466, especially if their loved one is now in a hospital ICU, or if their family member recently passed away prior to beginning the compensation process. As they would like to explain, the longer a person with mesothelioma waits to begin the compensation process for this rare cancer, the more difficult it becomes to get the best possible financial settlement and it is vital they have the nation's most experienced lawyers. http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "Of the 2,500 to 3,000 US citizens who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma this year, probably less than 25% will be properly compensated, and we think at least 10% will receive no compensation at all. We are urging the family members of a loved one who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma to call us anytime at 866-714-6466 because time and a sense of urgency are vital when it comes to getting the best possible compensation for this cancer caused by asbestos exposure.
"We also want to emphasize the attorneys we suggest to a diagnosed person with mesothelioma almost immediately go to visit with them in their home or, if need be, the hospital, so they can get as much information as possible about their asbestos exposure. Typically these amazing lawyers can be in the home of the person with mesothelioma within a few days of first contact. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with mesothelioma in any US State please call us at 866-714-6466 so you do not get shortchanged when it comes to mesothelioma compensation, or when it comes to selecting lawyers." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
Vital things a diagnosed person with mesothelioma must have to get the best possible financial settlement from the Mesothelioma Compensation Center:
- There must be a pathology report that confirms a mesothelioma diagnosis from a medical doctor.
- Specific information related to how or where the person with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos.
- Hopefully witnesses or coworkers who will confirm the exposure to asbestos.
- A really skilled and experienced mesothelioma lawyer who knows exactly what they are doing when it comes to getting their client the best possible mesothelioma compensation settlement.
