WASHINGTON, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Compensation Center is urging diagnosed victims who were exposed to asbestos while working at an oil refinery to call 866-714-6466 to ensure they are on the right pathway for the best possible compensation, especially if they were a plumber, welder, electrician, or a machinist. http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "We are incredibly focused on making certain that all diagnosed victims of this rare form of cancer who were exposed to asbestos at an oil refinery get the best possible compensation, which can be in the range of a million plus dollars."
"We are urging people with mesothelioma with this type of workplace exposure to call us anytime at 866-714-6466, so we can carefully explain how incredibly vital it is to hire one of the nation's top mesothelioma compensation lawyers to advance their compensation claim."
"Some cable TV commercials, or Internet advertising make it sound like all a person needs to do is submit a mesothelioma compensation claim and that's it. In reality, mesothelioma compensation claims are heavily contested and the companies only pay out if they have to. The reason a diagnosed victim of this rare form of cancer needs an incredibly skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorney, who is a national expert that specializes in oil refineries and asbestos exposure, is that without this type of specific expertise the victim or their family could lose on hundreds of thousands, or more in compensation."
"To us it's not only providing the diagnosed victim with one of the nation's top mesothelioma compensation lawyers, but in the instances related to a former oil refinery worker now diagnosed with mesothelioma, it is also about making certain that the lawyer has experience successfully litigating and fighting for the best compensation for these specific types of workers. Experience matters as we would like to explain." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
