WASHINGTON, Jan. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the Mesothelioma Victims Center, "If your loved one was initially diagnosed with the Coronavirus and upon closer examination, he turned out to have mesothelioma after an autopsy had been done - please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss financial compensation. The symptoms of the Coronavirus and mesothelioma are almost identical. We greatly fear that many people who had mesothelioma in 2020 were probably misdiagnosed with the Coronavirus-and we fear the same could happen for at least the first half of 2021.
"If your husband or dad is over 64 years old and you know he had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, or at work prior to 1982 please be sure to tell the physicians who are treating him at a hospital about his asbestos exposure if he is now in the hospital with what they care calling the Coronavirus. 2020 might go down as the worst year for people who have mesothelioma in the last two decades-not because there were fewer people who had mesothelioma-but because many of these individuals were diagnosed with the Coronavirus." www.karstvonoiste.com/
Special note: If a family's loved one has recently died from confirmed mesothelioma before the financial compensation process could begin please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste for a plan of action to get the financial compensation process started. Erik Karst and his colleagues at Karst von Oiste have been assisting families in this very difficult situation for decades, and they will know exactly how to help.
