WASHINGTON, Jan. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We recently spoke to the son of a lifeline residential and commercial construction worker diagnosed with mesothelioma. This victim's potential financial compensation claim could literally be worth hundreds of thousands, or millions of dollars, but according to his son, the dad wanted nothing to do with attorneys' and is, 'not interested in any financial compensation claim' related to mesothelioma."
The Victims Center says, "In instances like this we try to make certain the diagnosed victim's family is not stuck with what could be enormous medical costs, or related expenses. This is where we step in and help the diagnosed victim's family develop what we call a 'Plan B'. Basically we help the family develop a plan to make sure the expenses related to this incredibly rare form of cancer are covered, because we do not want any family left with a potentially enormous financial burden."
