WASHINGTON, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "A few weeks ago we did a press release about compensation for families of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma who had passed away before there was time for an extremely skilled mesothelioma attorney to get all of the needed information to put together a mesothelioma financial compensation claim. We were flooded with calls from families of victims—in some cases, the victim had passed away more than a decade ago. Tragically most families in this horrible situation do not realize the time to file a mesothelioma financial compensation claim is not open ended, and in many states the window is between two and three years."

Common Mistakes Made By The Family Of A Diagnosed Victim Of Mesothelioma Who Died Before The Financial Compensation Claims Process Could Begin From The Mesothelioma Victims Center:
- The family is so overwhelmed with grief no one wants to talk about or discuss mesothelioma financial compensation. The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "This is a huge mistake as we would like to explain with one call to 866-714-6466."
- The victim does not want anything to do with attorneys because the stigma of personal injury attorneys, so no mesothelioma financial compensation claim is ever filed. The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Frequently this mistake results in the family having to absorb tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in costs, or medical bills, that otherwise would have been paid for by a mesothelioma financial compensation claims settlement."
- The victim has a son or daughter that does not live in the same state as the deceased victim, and they are not aware of statute of limitation issues, so a mesothelioma financial compensation claim is not filed in within the correct time frames. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
