WASHINGTON, April 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center is expanding their initiative for diagnosed victims who were exposed to asbestos at an auto or truck manufacturing facility, or as a mechanic because the group cannot stand to let even one single victim of this rare form of cancer get financially shortchanged. For more information, all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma and/or their family members are urged to contact the Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466 for their unsurpassed services. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We had a chilling call from a former auto manufacturing worker that enlightened us to how these types of workers were exposed to asbestos. In this instance he worked on an assembly line installing brake shoes and pads. According to him, at the end of each day, he and his coworkers would use air hoses to spray asbestos off of their work clothing, out of fear they would bring it home to their wives and children. The time frame for this exposure was the late 1960s.
"In the last few months we have also talked with brake mechanics and auto mechanics, who have similar stories. While auto parts such as brake shoes, pads, automatic transmission parts, and auto clutch parts containing asbestos was the norm in the 1950s through the 1970s, these types of auto parts are banned today.
"If you worked in the auto or truck manufacturing industry in the 1950s through the 1980s, or if you were an auto mechanic during these time frames, and have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, please call us at 866-714-6466 so we can carefully explain why it is incredibly vital to have one of the nation's top mesothelioma lawyers advancing your compensation claim. As we would like to explain, getting the best possible mesothelioma compensation requires one of the nation's most experienced and skilled lawyers that specializes in mesothelioma compensation." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
