NEW YORK, Dec. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "The most heartbreaking call we receive is from a grieving family who received a hundred thousand dollars in total mesothelioma compensation for their loved one, when the claim could have been worth substantially more. Because the family hired a local car accident attorney, as opposed to one of the nation's most capable mesothelioma attorneys, there is nothing we can do to get them the settlement they deserved. We work nights and weekends to provide people who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma with the essential tools they need to have a successful mesothelioma compensation claim-including direct access to some of the nation's most skilled fulltime mesothelioma attorneys.
"We are urging recently diagnosed people with mesothelioma who were exposed to asbestos in the skilled trades or at a factory need to call us at 800-714-0303 so we can make certain they have direct access to the nation's most qualified mesothelioma attorneys on the spot. We don't want one single person with mesothelioma to get shortchanged or overcharged because they hired the wrong lawyers or law firm." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center specializes in assisting people nationwide with finding the most qualified attorneys if they were exposed to asbestos while working as a:
- Construction worker
- Concrete specialist
- US Navy
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 average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is about 70 years old. Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
