Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Offers Free Tips to US Navy Veterans With This Rare Cancer That Are Focused on How to Get the Best Compensation -- A Really Good Lawyer Is Required

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - August 07, 2015) - The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "The worst mistake a person diagnosed with mesothelioma can make is selecting the easiest option when it comes to mesothelioma compensation, especially if they are a US Navy Veteran who was exposed to asbestos on a navy ship. This might include believing Internet websites that suggests no court or lawyers are required to pursue mesothelioma compensation." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Mesothelioma Victims Center is expanding their initiative in making certain that all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma understand that a poor choice in hiring a lawyer to advance a mesothelioma compensation claim could be a financial disaster. The group says, "In this instance not only is the person with this rare cancer stuck with the lawyer, they are probably also stuck with a sub-par mesothelioma compensation settlement. We are especially focused on US Navy Veterans because they make up about one-third of all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma in the United States each year."

If a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is a US Navy Veteran and was initially exposed to asbestos on a US Navy ship or in a shipyard, the Mesothelioma Victims Center urges them or their family members to call them anytime at 866-714-6466 to ensure they get the nation's most experienced mesothelioma lawyers in the nation for the best possible compensation nationwide.

Civilian US Navy shipyard workers are also included in this invitation, especially if they were exposed to asbestos at naval shipyard in Virginia, California, Washington, Maryland, Connecticut, Maine, Pennsylvania, New York, or Hawaii. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Tips for making certain a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, or their family, hire the best possible lawyer or law firm to advance a mesothelioma compensation claim from the Mesothelioma Victims Center:

  • If the lawyer suggesting a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma or their family should hire them cannot produce references that are no older than six months old, don't hire them.
  • The lawyer should be able to produce references from a diagnosed victim's family that confirm the lawyer did an outstanding job, and he or she was extremely professional and thorough.
  • If the lawyer suggests they will be working with another firm, or another law firm will be handling the compensation claim, why is the diagnosed victim, or the victim's family members talking to that lawyer?

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, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or construction workers. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia.

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.

However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Victims Center receives a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Before you hire a mesothelioma attorney please call us at 866-714-6466, and compare the qualifications of whom we consider to be the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys to any other lawyer, or law firm.

"When it comes to obtaining the best mesothelioma compensation settlement, the quality of the attorney matters, as we would like to explain anytime." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
