WASHINGTON, Aug. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Typically the conversation starts with an adult son or daughter asking how it is possible their mother has mesothelioma when she has never worked directly with asbestos. What we've found is the mother of the family had a husband that worked in and around asbestos in the construction industry or while at a shipyard, power plant, or factory.
"What we want to do for families in this circumstance is advise them about what attorneys they need to speak with-who will get them the most significant possible compensation. Please call us anytime at 800-714-0303 so we can go to work connecting you with one of the nation's most acclaimed mesothelioma attorneys who specializes in financial compensation for people exactly like this.
"In this instance, we are talking about second-hand exposure to asbestos and the financial compensation can be almost as much as an individual who was directly exposed to asbestos at work." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center fears that most families dealing with news their loved one now has mesothelioma and can't figure out who to trust with the compensation claim or don't think compensation for their loved one is possible. Many are dumbfounded that it is even possible their mother has mesothelioma when she never worked with asbestos. Frequently a construction worker, shipyard, factory, or power plant worker who worked around asbestos everyday would not change their work clothing before coming home. The family member or members who came into contact with their loved one's work clothing-could have easily been exposed to asbestos. The best chance for second-hand exposure to asbestos would have been the worker's wife.
As the group would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303, "If your mother or wife has unexpectedly been diagnosed with mesothelioma, please call us as quickly as possible so we can put you in direct contact with some of the premier mesothelioma attorneys in the nation.

It is a situation like this where you really do need some of top mesothelioma attorneys in the United States assisting with the financial compensation claim as we would like to discuss anytime." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
According to the American Cancer Society, "Family members of people exposed to asbestos at work can also be exposed because the workers can carry home asbestos fibers on their clothes."

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, millwrights, welders, 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. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
