The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We get calls every week from a family member of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, who has died, and the family member, or family is just now beginning the mesothelioma compensation claims process. We are urging family members of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma who has died without beginning a claim for compensation to call us immediately at 866-714-6466, provided it has been less than a few years since the loved one has passed away.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center is an advocate for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, and if a diagnosed victim has died before the compensation process could begin the group has two vital suggestion for the victim's family members:
- Not all US states have the same statute of limitations for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, or their family members. In some states it is only one year. It is vital to begin the mesothelioma compensation claims process as soon as possible, or the statute of limitations for a victim's compensation in a specific state could literally run out.
- The Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging family members of a diagnosed victim who has died before beginning the compensation claims process to call them at 866-714-6466 so they can very carefully explain why it is incredibly vital for a family in this horrible situation to have on the spot access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma compensation attorneys. Not doing so could cost the family hundreds of thousands, or over a million dollars. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
