NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are offering a US Navy Veteran who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma an aggressive approach when it comes to making certain they have the nation's best mesothelioma attorneys for financial compensation, information about the nation's leading treatment centers, as well as honest advice to help the Veteran and their family through this extremely difficult situation.
"As far as we are concerned, a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma should go to the front of the line, which is what we work hard to do for those that call us at 800-714-0303." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is warning Navy Veterans with mesothelioma, or their family, to be extremely cautious about Internet ads that suggest there is a, "federally sponsored claims center for Veterans with mesothelioma" and/or that, "no lawsuit is needed."
"These types of ads are typically sponsored by marketing law firms that signup people with mesothelioma and then pass them along to a separate law firm that does the claims or trial work. Before you hire a lawyer or law firm to assist with a mesothelioma compensation claim, please call us at 800-714-0303 if for no other reason than to have the peace of mind in knowing you really are talking directly with the nation's most skilled and capable mesothelioma attorneys." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
In most instances a US Navy Veteran's ship would have been based in one of the following states:
- Virginia (Norfolk, Virginia is home to the world's largest navy base)
- South Carolina
- Connecticut (New London, Connecticut is known by locals as the submarine capital of the world)
Each year about 3000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, miners, manufacturing workers, pulp or paper mill workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, construction workers, rail road workers, and firemen. Typically, the exposure to asbestos for these types of workers occurred in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's.
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, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives a diagnosed US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Delaware, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "As we would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303 if a person who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma wants the best possible compensation it is vital they have the nation's most skilled, and experienced mesothelioma lawyers." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
