Belluck & Fox Mesothelioma Victims Center Urges Navy Veterans With a Confirmed Diagnosis to Call for an Approach That Covers All the Bases for a Better Settlement

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 03, 2016) - The Belluck & Fox Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "About one-third of all people diagnosed with mesothelioma this year will be Veterans of the US Navy. Typically, their exposure to asbestos occurred while on a US Navy ship, or at a US Naval Shipyard. Most frequently the Navy Veterans worked in a navy ship's engine room or while as a machinist, welder, plumber, electrician, maintenance technician, or as a damage control technician. These types of US Navy Veterans typically had the most exposure to asbestos.

"If you are a US Navy Veteran and you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma in any state, please call us at 800-714-0303 and let us talk with you about your ship, your rating while in the service, and what type of work you did in the US Navy. You might be surprised to learn we have a wealth of knowledge about US Navy ships that contained asbestos including: frigates, destroyers, cruisers, carriers, amphibious assault shops, cargo ships, tenders, oilers, attack submarines, or boomers. We also have a great deal of knowledge about every US Navy Shipyard from Bangor, to Bremerton, and or New London, Hunters Point, Philadelphia, New York, Treasure Island, or Pearl Harbor. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Belluck & Fox Mesothelioma Victims Center has a unique approach when it comes to making certain a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma gets the best possible compensation regardless of what state they now live in. This approach includes:

  • A no obligation visit to the home of the Veteran with mesothelioma to determine every potential point of where or how they came into contact with asbestos.
  • An evaluation of what the mesothelioma compensation claim might be worth to the US Navy Veteran and their family.
  • Suggestions about treatment option healthcare facilities that are close to the US Navy Veteran.
  • Guidance for the diagnosed US Navy Veteran and their family about vital things they must have in place to protect themselves, such as a properly executed will.
  • The Belluck & Fox law firm typically sends out one of their senior partners to make certain nothing is overlooked, and all vital issues are addressed. For more information, a US Navy Veteran who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma or their family are urged to call the Center anytime at 800-714-0303. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma in the United States is 72 years old. Because of their age frequently people with mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. This year between 2500 and 3000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma.

According to the CDC the states indicated with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Louisiana, Washington, and Oregon.

High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, manufacturing, or industrial workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, miners, or construction workers. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s. US Navy Veterans make up about one third of all US Citizens who are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
