Mesothelioma Victims Center Now Warns That Wanting the Best Financial Settlement and Getting It Are Two Different Things When It Comes to Mesothelioma Compensation -- Especially for a US Navy Veteran

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - November 19, 2015) - The Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma to avoid Internet ads that suggest they are a claims center, or no lawsuit needed, because in order to get the best possible compensation for this rare cancer a very experienced lawyer is required. "Wanting the best possible mesothelioma compensation and getting it are two different things."

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "When it comes to too-good-to-be-true mesothelioma advertisements on the Internet about 'no lawsuit needed,' or 'claims centers,' don't forget about what your grandparents taught you: if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

"If you are a US Navy Veteran who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, or the family member of a loved one, please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 so we can explain that without the nation's very best mesothelioma lawyers advancing your claim, you probably will get significantly shortchanged." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Center wants to emphasize their effort for US Navy Veterans with mesothelioma is nationwide. The most obvious states for US Navy Veterans include: Virginia, California, Maine, Washington, Connecticut, or Hawaii, because these states all had US Navy bases in the 1960's and 1970's. However, there are US Navy Veterans in every state who will get mesothelioma, including: Florida, Texas, Massachusetts, New York, Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Idaho, Colorado, Louisiana, Michigan, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Georgia, or North Carolina.

Important Compensation Tip from the Mesothelioma Victims Center for a US Navy Veteran or US Navy Shipyard worker now diagnosed with mesothelioma:

* "Call us at 866-714-6466 and you'll get the names of at least two specific lawyers at different mesothelioma law firms who consistently get the best possible compensation results for their clients on a nationwide basis. Don't shortchange yourself when it comes to mesothelioma compensation, because it's really easy to do so if you don't ask for help.

* "We also want to emphasize that the lawyers we suggest to the Veteran or their family, travel to the Veteran's home, and that the person with this rare cancer does not owe anything to the lawyers or law firm unless there is a settlement." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

High risk groups for exposure to asbestos include the US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, steel mill workers, oil refinery workers, manufacturing workers, plumbers, electricians, welders, insulators, auto mechanics, machinists, construction workers, or miners. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's.

US Navy Veterans account for a significant portion of all diagnosed victims of mesothelioma each year. According to the US Centers for Disease Control the average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 72 years old. Each 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.

However, based on the calls the Mesothelioma Compensation Center receives a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma could live in any state including California, New York, Florida, Texas, or Illinois.

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "If you call us anytime at 866-714-6466, we will see to it that you have on the spot access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys, because these incredibly skilled legal experts consistently get the best financial compensation results for their clients on a nationwide basis.

"Before you hire a lawyer to advance a mesothelioma compensation claim please call us first, so you get it right." http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
