NEW YORK, Nov. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are urging a Navy Veteran or a shipyard worker with mesothelioma to not get left at the back of the financial compensation line because they hired unqualified or inexperienced lawyer(s) to assist with their compensation claim.
"If you are a Navy Veteran or shipyard worker and you have recently been diagnosed with this asbestos-exposure form of cancer, please call us at 800-714-0303 so we can make certain you have the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys working to make certain you receive the very best possible financial compensation." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center believes that many Navy Veterans had extreme exposure to asbestos while stationed or while visiting a shipyard. Unlike the shipyard workers who could leave work after eight hours, many US Navy Veterans were stuck on their ship and were literally breathing asbestos 24/7 for what could have been months. US Navy Veterans make up about one-third of people who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma in the United States each year.
The Center is offering some vital tips for diagnosed Navy Veterans or shipyard workers when it comes to compensation and why it is so vital to hire the most skilled attorneys:
- "If the lawyer you are talking with cannot produce proof they were the responsible party in obtaining a million-dollar settlement for a Navy Veteran or shipyard worker, please call us at 800-714-0303 for on-the-spot access to a few of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys who have recent references.
- "The biggest mistake we see the family of a Navy Veteran or shipyard worker make is not having a biopsy performed after they are told by a doctor mesothelioma is a possibility. Without medical proof that confirms a mesothelioma diagnosis, compensation for this rare cancer is nearly impossible.
- "The other mistake we see Veterans and shipyard worker's family make is waiting too long to begin the financial compensation process. If the statute of limitations runs out to begin a mesothelioma compensation claim, there is not much attorneys can do to help.
- "If you have recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma, please call us anytime at 800-714-0303 so we can try to make certain you are talking directly to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, miners, pulp or paper mill workers, printers, factory workers, railroad workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, welders, pipefitters, insulators, firemen and construction workers. In most instances a person who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "If you call us at 1-800-714-0303, you will be talking directly to some of the nation's skilled and experienced lawyers, and they make house calls." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
