NEW YORK, March 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are now offering to help a US Navy Veteran who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma by providing them on-the-spot access to the nation's top lawyers when it comes to compensation results. We are especially encouraging diagnosed Navy Veterans whose primary exposure to asbestos occurred at a shipyard while their ship was undergoing a retrofit or overhaul.
"As we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303, Navy Veterans with mesothelioma who were also exposed to asbestos at a shipyard can frequently receive one million-dollar plus compensation settlements. The catch to this high amount of compensation is that these types of compensation settlements must be represented by full-time mesothelioma attorneys who specialize in Navy Veteran/shipyard mesothelioma compensation claims. At the same time-we want to do everything possible to prevent a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma from getting gouged with legal fees from a law firm." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
"The Center fears that many US Navy Veterans who are identified with confirmed mesothelioma each year lose out on significant financial results because by the time they get diagnosed at VA Medical Center, they are too ill to recall specifics related to how or when they were exposed to asbestos. It is this specific information about how or where a person with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos that becomes the foundation for a successful mesothelioma financial claim."
Before a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma hires a lawyer/law firm to work on any claim, please call the Mesothelioma Victims Center at 800-714-0303 for incredibly honest suggestions about some of the nation's most skilled and capable mesothelioma attorneys. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
