WASHINGTON, Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging baby boomers who were building trades workers, manufacturing workers, or industrial workers exposed to asbestos at a workplace in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s to get annual medical screenings for asbestos related illnesses such as mesothelioma and asbestosis. The group says, "The CDC list of high-risk workers is so long that we can't list them all out here, but what we can say is that if a former construction, manufacturing, or industrial worker has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, we urge them to contact the Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466 or http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com to ensure they have instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation lawyers."
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We have a gigantic new worry about mesothelioma and individuals who were exposed to asbestos in the construction, manufacturing, industrial trades, or maintenance trades: baby boomers. The largest generation of US citizens in our nation's history worked some of the hardest jobs, some of which put them in direct contact with asbestos fibers. For the lengthy list of high-risk workers for past exposure to asbestos please refer to the Center for Disease Control's website on this topic found here.
"We are seeing a very large spike in the number of newly diagnosed mesothelioma victims because many of these individuals were exposed to asbestos at a workplace in the late 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or early 1980s. One thing to understand about this rare disease is that it often takes many decades to manifest itself. What differentiates us from any other group or organization in the nation is our passion in making certain that all diagnosed victims of this rare form of cancer get the nation's best lawyers to advance a mesothelioma compensation claim.
"Not having one of these incredibly-skilled legal experts could cost the diagnosed victim and/or their family members hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation—sometimes more than one million dollars."
