The Mesothelioma Victims Center is offering a vital compensation tip for a Navy Veteran who has mesothelioma because of extreme exposure to asbestos at a shipyard. The most common types of Navy Veterans with mesothelioma are sailors who worked in the engine room of a ship or were assigned to a ship's machine shop/repair facility.
"However, if the sailor was stuck on a ship during an overhaul or retrofit, the individual could have been exposed to asbestos from every part of the ship undergoing maintenance. These types of sailors typically receive much better financial compensation provided they have the most skilled mesothelioma attorneys representing them as we would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
