Mesothelioma Victims Center Urges a Navy Veteran With Mesothelioma to Call Them to Discuss Why a Full Time Mesothelioma Lawyer Is Needed to Get Much Better Compensation

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - April 18, 2016) -  The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Our number one passion is making certain that people with mesothelioma get the best possible compensation, especially if they were exposed to asbestos on a US Navy ship. US Navy Veterans will account for about one-third of all people in the United States who will be diagnosed with mesothelioma this year and we think they deserve the absolute best resources and help. If a diagnosed person with mesothelioma or their family calls us at 800-714-030 we will provide these resources on the spot.

"In order for a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma to receive the best possible compensation, they will need an extremely experienced and skilled mesothelioma attorney, or team of attorneys, who exclusively handle mesothelioma compensation claims nationwide. The attorneys we suggest are full-time mesothelioma lawyers that consistently get the best compensation settlements for their clients and they make house calls. In other words, they travel to meet the US Navy Veteran who has mesothelioma in their home to talk about the details related to how they were exposed to asbestos and the potential value of a compensation claim."

For more information, all US Navy Veterans who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma or their family are encouraged to call the Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 800-714-0303. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Most Veterans who were exposed to asbestos served on US Navy ships that were based at:

  • Norfolk, Virginia
  • San Diego, California
  • New London, Connecticut
  • Kings Bay, Georgia
  • Portsmouth, Maine
  • Bangor, Washington
  • Bremerton, Washington
  • Honolulu, Hawaii

High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, miners, factory workers, railroad workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, welders, pipefitters, insulators, and 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 about 72 years old. This year between 2500, and 3000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer that is caused by exposure to asbestos.

The Belluck & Fox Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "If you call us at 1-800-714-0303, you will be talking to some of the nation's skilled and experienced lawyers, and we make house calls. In other words we go to visit the person who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma at their home almost immediately. The more we understand where or how the person who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma was exposed to asbestos -- the better we can represent them."

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, Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.
