Mesothelioma Victims Center Provides Resources for US Navy Veterans Filing for Victim Compensation One third of diagnosed victims served in the US navy; Mesothelioma Victims Center hotline connects vets to the best attorneys in the nation
WASHINGTON, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center is incredibly passionate about helping all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma obtain the best possible financial compensation for this rare form of cancer, especially if they are Veterans of the US Navy.
The group says, "We pay special attention to victims of mesothelioma who are Veterans of the US Navy. The reason we focus so heavily on Navy Veterans, is frequently these individuals learned a skill or a trade while serving in the US Navy, and continued using this skill in their civilian life where they were possibly re-exposed to asbestos again for the second time. The CDC lists maritime related industries as a top source for asbestos exposure from the 1950's through the 1990's." The Mesothelioma Victims Center has created a response that is unmatched in the US for Veterans, who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma with one call to 866-714-6466. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is focused on US Navy Veterans because:
- So many of these Veterans learned a trade or job skill they took with them after their time in the navy and went onto work as a machinist, pipe-fitter, plumber, electrician, boiler technician, carpenter, or as a mechanic in the private sector, where they were re-exposed to asbestos at the workplace.
- Some of the largest mesothelioma compensation claims the Mesothelioma Victims Center has ever heard of involved US Navy Veterans that had initial exposure to asbestos in the US Navy, and then went onto get exposed to asbestos in a private sector workplace.
We believe we have assembled a team of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys that consistently get the best possible financial compensation for their clients, and we are urging US Navy Veterans, or their families, to call us at 866-714-6466 if mesothelioma has been diagnosed. When it comes to going the extra mile for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, our services really are unsurpassed." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
