Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Urges a Family That Just Lost a Loved One to Mesothelioma to Call Them for Possible Vital Assistance With Compensation -- Don't Wait -- Time Really Can Run Out

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - December 03, 2015) - The Mesothelioma Victims Center urges any family grieving over the loss of a loved one to mesothelioma that was unable to begin the compensation process, to call them ASAP as long as it has been less than one year since the diagnosis.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "The most heartbreaking call we receive is from the family members of a diagnosed person with mesothelioma who passed away before starting the compensation process for this rare form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure. If this has recently happened to your loved one or family member, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 so we can carefully get you pointed in the right direction towards possible compensation.

"Time is not your friend when it comes to mesothelioma compensation, so we really can only help people whose loved one has passed away from confirmed mesothelioma in the last year. We are potentially talking about hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in mesothelioma compensation, but if a family waits too long they will never receive a dime." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Vital Tips for a Family Dealing With the Recent Loss of a Loved One Before the Mesothelioma Compensation Claims Process Began From the Mesothelioma Victims Center:

  • A pathology report must confirm a mesothelioma diagnosis and must come from a medical doctor.
  • Did the diagnosed person have a will? If the answer is no, it can be a problem.
  • Does the family have the work history of the loved one who passed away from mesothelioma? As an example, we know that one-third of all diagnosed individuals in the United States will be US Navy Veterans. Did your loved one serve in the US Navy?
  • Did your loved one have coworkers/friends who can confirm the asbestos exposure?
  • Can the family list the names, or addresses of the loved one's workplaces? Typically we are talking about asbestos exposure that took place in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s. Frequently a wife, brother, or sister may know these details.
  • Do not wait to begin the mesothelioma compensation process if your loved one has recently died from a confirmed case of mesothelioma. Please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 so we can help you with our unsurpassed free service. 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. This year between 2500, and 3000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is attributable to exposure to asbestos.

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.
