WASHINGTON, April 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Compensation Center is launching a new initiative, specifically focused on former chemical plant workers, that makes certain that this type of person has immediate access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation lawyers. The Center says, "Call us at 866-714-6466 and we'll explain that the reason we are so passionate about providing diagnosed victims with information on the nation's top lawyers for this rare cancer and how it can be defined in two words: skill and experience." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "Compensation for individuals who were exposed to asbestos at a chemical manufacturing facility can be among the highest for any type of industrial worker, because there was so much asbestos in these types of facilities in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, and even 1980s.
"The reason there was so much asbestos at chemical manufacturing facilities during these time frames comes from the obvious need to eliminate the potential of fire. As a result almost all chemical manufacturing buildings, pipes, electrical conduits, pumps, and other equipment were covered with asbestos as it was used as insulation. Typically, chemical manufacturing facilities are located in close proximity to oil refineries, or oil distribution centers."
The states with the most chemical manufacturing facilities during the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s include:
- New Jersey
- New York
The Center says, "What we would like to explain to any diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, who reaches out to us, that was exposed to asbestos at a chemical manufacturing facility, is if they choose poorly when hiring a law firm to advance a mesothelioma compensation claim the mistake could cost them over one million dollars in lost compensation.
"Before any diagnosed victim of this rare form of cancer hires a lawyer to advance a mesothelioma compensation claim, we'd like to have a one-on-one conversation about the pitfalls of hiring the wrong law firm. We urge anyone involved in a mesothelioma diagnosis to call us at 866-714-6466, so we can make suggestions about who we think will do the best job. No other group in the nation offers a service like this." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
