NEW YORK, April 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are literally the only group in the nation that will gladly give out the names of who we consider to be the top mesothelioma attorneys. Typically, we can offer immediate access to these experts, especially if we are talking about a welder or pipefitter who has recently been diagnosed with this rare cancer.
"As we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303, the reason we place a priority on getting you the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys is that they typically will know how to get the best possible compensation for the diagnosed person. Just as importantly, these extremely skilled full-time mesothelioma attorneys can often tell the diagnosed person the potential value of their compensation claim after learning the specifics of the asbestos exposure." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Center fears that welders and/or pipefitters with mesothelioma may not get properly compensated if they hire a lawyer/law firm that does not have experience representing these exact types of people with this rare cancer. It takes years to become an experienced welder or pipefitter, much like it takes years to become a skilled mesothelioma attorney.
Between the 1940's and the 1980's, pipefitters were routinely exposed to asbestos while performing their jobs. This is because asbestos was used for insulating pipes and for sealing materials like gaskets. In addition, pipefitters connected pipes to and worked on asbestos-containing equipment such as boilers, pumps, valves, and turbines.
Prior to 1980 a welder could have been exposed to asbestos by simply putting on their protective vest and gloves, both of which contained asbestos. Welders in a factory or a power facility could have been exposed to asbestos just by doing repairs, or being in places where asbestos was present-on a daily basis.
A pipefitter or welder who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma is urged to call the Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 800-714-0303 for on-the-spot access to the nation's most skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorneys. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
Vital tips for hiring a lawyer/law firm to assist with a welder or pipefitter who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma from the Mesothelioma Victims Center:
- "If the lawyer you are talking to has never personally handled a mesothelioma financial compensation claim for a welder or pipefitter, call us anytime at 800-714-0303 for direct access to attorneys who have been successfully representing welders and pipefitters with mesothelioma for over a decade.
- "Hiring an attorney that has little to no experience in mesothelioma compensation would be similar to sending an apprentice out to do the work of a journeyman; it just doesn't make any sense and will cost money in the long run."
For more information about current working conditions for a pipefitter please review the following website:
High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, miners, manufacturing workers, pulp or paper mill workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, construction workers, rail road workers, and firemen. Typically, the exposure to asbestos for these types of workers occurred in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is about 70 years old. Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
