Mesothelioma Victims Center Urges Second-Hand Asbestos Exposure Awareness for the Wives and Adult Children of Former Shipyard or Industrial Workers Because of the Link to This Rare Cancer and Possible Compensation

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - November 09, 2015) - The Mesothelioma Victims Center is launching a national awareness initiative for victims of second-hand exposure to asbestos. The wife or adult children of a former industrial worker that had second-hand exposure to asbestos can get this rare cancer, and as the Center would like to explain, their compensation can be significant.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Typically the conversation starts with, 'I don't know how I was exposed to asbestos and/or my mom has mesothelioma and she can't figure out how.' When we get approached with this topic, the first piece of information we want to figure out is the line of work the husband of the family was in. Typically we find that he worked at a shipyard, manufacturing facility, or power plant; more specifically, he was a skilled tradesman as a plumber, electrician, welder, or many other trades.

"To be clear we are talking about women who were not directly exposed to asbestos at work. The asbestos exposure came from their husband's work clothing.

"Aside from helping a person with this rare form of cancer figure out how or where they could have been exposed to asbestos, we urge them to call us at 866-714-6466 before hiring a law firm so that we can help them find one of the nation's most skilled attorneys to help with their mesothelioma compensation claim; especially one as complicated as a second-hand exposure mesothelioma compensation claim. As we would like to explain to a diagnosed person with this rare cancer, if you do not get the nation's top mesothelioma lawyers, you will not get properly compensated." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

How does a person get second-hand exposure to asbestos?

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "The typical diagnosed person with mesothelioma from second-hand exposure to asbestos is the wife of a former manufacturing, power plant, shipyard, or skilled trades worker whose clothing were covered in asbestos each day when they came home from work. It doesn't take much to get the small particles of asbestos airborne; once in the air, anyone can inhale them in. Typically the second-hand exposure victim washed the work clothing of the worker."

Incredibly Vital Compensation Tip from the Mesothelioma Victims Center: "A mesothelioma compensation claim for a person who had second-hand exposure to asbestos can be almost as valuable as the worker who had the direct exposure at their place of work. We are urging a person who has been diagnosed with mesothelioma who cannot figure out how or where they came in contact with asbestos to call us anytime at 866-714-6466. In these instances you really do need the nation's best mesothelioma lawyers, as we would like to explain." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

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

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 who 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 to a person with this rare form of cancer or their family."
