NEW YORK, April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center is now warning US Navy Veterans or their families to steer clear of Internet ads that make it sound as if the Veterans Administration is the one requesting Veterans to call a 800 phone number. The Veterans Administration does not sponsor Internet ads for Navy Veterans who have mesothelioma, as the Center would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303. These types of deceptive ads are typically sponsored law firms looking to broker victims and typically target Veterans with mesothelioma.
"We offer a US Navy Veteran direct and immediate access to some of the most skilled mesothelioma attorneys in the nation who specialize in assisting US Navy Veterans with mesothelioma and do everything possible to get the best possible financial compensation for their Navy Veteran clients." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center also wants to emphasize the extremely experienced mesothelioma attorneys they suggest charge 33% percent of the gross settlement amount, even if a lawsuit or trial is involved. The mesothelioma compensation claim process is contested by asbestos trusts, shipyards, or parts makers that may have had a role in the Navy Veteran's exposure to asbestos. This means that many times a lawsuit is needed, contrary to deceptive Internet ads that suggest "no lawsuit needed." As the group would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303, the mesothelioma marketing firms frequently charge a 40% contingent fee + expenses.

The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is about 70 years old. This year between 2,500 and 3,000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma in the United States. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is attributable to exposure to asbestos.
High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, shipyard workers, steel mill workers, oil refinery workers, factory workers, plumbers, electricians, welders, pipefitters, miners, auto mechanics, machinists, pulp or paper mill workers, printers, firemen, railroad workers and construction workers. In most instances people with mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
