New York, NY, April 14, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- The Mesothelioma Victims Center
says, "Because mesothelioma is such a rare form of cancer, it should go without saying that if a recently diagnosed person with mesothelioma, or their family, the chances of losing out on compensation are high if they do not have representation from one of the nation's top mesothelioma lawyers. We are talking about potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in compensation the diagnosed person should have received, but never will. If you have mesothelioma, please call us at 800-714-0303 and make a smart choice when it comes to hiring a real-deal mesothelioma attorney.”
The Center says, "About once a month we receive a call from a diagnosed victim or their family members asking if a car accident lawyer, a divorce attorney, or a medical malpractice lawyer would be a good choice to help the family through a mesothelioma compensation claim; our answer is 'absolutely not.'
“Before any diagnosed victim of mesothelioma in any state, or their family, hires a lawyer to help with a mesothelioma compensation claim, please call us anytime at 800-714-0303 to ensure you get a lawyer who specializes in mesothelioma compensation claims on a full time basis nationwide." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.com
The five most important qualities a lawyer must have before someone hires them to work on a diagnosed person's compensation claim include the following:
-At least one decade of experience handling mesothelioma compensation claims on a full-time basis nationwide.
-Documented proof of results in getting the best possible compensation results for their clients.
-Very recent family references that verify the lawyer’s skill and experience.
-The ability to travel to the victim’s home to conduct a face-to-face meeting on the details of asbestos exposure.
-Knowledge of how and where individuals of various trades may have come into contact with asbestos. 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, 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 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.
