Mesothelioma Victims Center Warns US Navy Veterans and Skilled Trades Workers With This Rare Cancer to Not Put Off Starting the Compensation Process and to Call Them About Getting the Nation's Best Lawyers Before Time Runs Out

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - November 25, 2015) - The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Veterans, or almost any type of worker with diagnosed mesothelioma, that delay the compensation process might find that the window of opportunity has passed. We are talking about what could be hundreds of thousands of dollars or more for this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure."

The Mesothelioma Victims Center is saying, "The mesothelioma compensation clock for a US Navy Veteran, plumber, welder, electrician or manufacturing worker starts ticking on the day their diagnosis is confirmed. If a person with mesothelioma and/or their family puts off starting the mesothelioma compensation process, in some states the time to file a claim might only be a year.

"As soon as you or a loved one receives news of a mesothelioma diagnosis, please call us at 866-714-6466 so we can explain how the mesothelioma compensation process works. We've put together a comprehensive list of recommendations on the nation's top mesothelioma lawyers and want to share it with victims and/or their family members. Please don't shortchange yourself when it comes to mesothelioma compensation because you didn't ask for help, or waited too long." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Top mistakes diagnosed Veterans and skilled trades workers make when it comes to the receiving the best mesothelioma compensation:

  • Avoiding the mesothelioma claim's process altogether due to not wanting to speak to an attorney.
  • Not doing enough research on honest sources of information on mesothelioma, resulting in believing Internet ads that focus on "No lawsuits required," "Compensation Center," or "Get your treatment first, and then call us."
  • Hiring a local personal injury attorney who specializes in car accidents, as opposed to hiring a full-time nationwide law firm with a law practice that's solely devoted to getting a diagnosed person with mesothelioma the best possible compensation.
  • The Veteran or trades worker is so sick that their family is afraid a mesothelioma lawyer might cause extra agony for the person, resulting in the diagnosed person never actually speaking to a lawyer about their asbestos exposure.

"If you, or your family member has mesothelioma and any of this sounds familiar, please call us at 866-714-6466 and we will try to walk you through your concerns or questions-our service is free." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

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, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. Typically the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s, or 1980s.

The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is 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 attributable to exposure to asbestos.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "If you call us at 866-714-6466, we will see to it that you have instant access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys, who consistently get the best possible financial compensation results for their clients.

"Before you hire a law firm, or lawyer to advance a mesothelioma compensation claim please call us first so we can tell you who we consider to be the nation's top mesothelioma lawyers. As we would like to explain skill, and experience matters when it comes to a lawyer representing a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, or the victim's family." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
