WASHINGTON, May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center is now urging a US Navy Veteran recently diagnosed with mesothelioma to call them anytime at 800-714-0303 so they can discover if they were stuck on a navy ship during an overhaul or retrofit at a shipyard. In many instances, the mesothelioma compensation potential for these types of people can ramp up dramatically because these types of Veterans were stuck on the ship during these overhauls, 24-7.
By assigning the sailor to stay, sleep, and work on their ship while at a shipyard, these types of Veterans were potentially exposed to asbestos levels that would be hard to comprehend. Only shipyard workers would have had similar extreme exposure to asbestos, but their job would have allowed them to go home after their shift; most US Navy Veterans stuck on their ship did not have this luxury. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Center says, "If you talk to a US Navy Veteran who was stuck on any frigate, destroyer, cruiser, battleship, amphibious assault ship, or aircraft carrier during a retrofit or overhaul at a shipyard, the extreme nature of the asbestos exposure is hard to even comprehend. It is a wonder that every US Navy Veteran who was stuck on their ship as either a worker or in a support role at a shipyard does not have mesothelioma because the asbestos exposure was typically off the charts.
"We offer US Navy Veterans with mesothelioma several unique services that few other groups do and they are as follows:

According to the CDC 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 victim of mesothelioma could live in any state. The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma in the United States is 72 years old.
High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, manufacturing or industrial workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, roofers, machinists, miners, or construction workers. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. US Navy Veterans make up about one third of all US Citizens who are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Before you hire a law firm to advance a mesothelioma compensation claim please call us at 800-714-0303, and compare our qualifications to any other lawyer, or law firm in the nation." http://www.belluckfox.com/
