NEW YORK, NY, September 21, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Our number one priority is to see to it that the best possible financial compensation is achieved for a US Navy Veteran who has been recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma. As we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303, if a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma wants to receive financial settlement results it is imperative they hire the very best lawyers. We are talking about full-time mesothelioma attorneys who specialize in compensation for people with mesothelioma such as US Navy Veterans." http://MesothelimaVictimsCenter.Com
The amount of asbestos a US Navy Veteran could have been exposed to while onboard their ship can be almost unimaginable. As an example, in the instance of a construction worker or factory worker, the asbestos exposure was likely contained to one specific area. On a US Navy ship, significant exposure to anyone below deck could have been an ongoing problem because it would be difficult to completely air out the asbestos. Many Navy ships did not have windows below the main deck-with the exception of aircraft carriers and/or amphibious warships.
As the Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to explain anytime, "US Navy Veterans fall into a special category for us because they served our nation and they are the leading work group who will get mesothelioma each year. We also want to clear up that when we mention the 'best possible financial compensation' we are talking about potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars to over one million dollars in terms of a financial compensation settlement.
"We are not referring to a VA disability payment of about $1200 per month. You don't need one of the nation's leading mesothelioma attorneys to get a VA disability check, but you will need one if you want a settlement that is in the hundreds of thousands to over one million dollars. Before you hire a lawyer to assist with a mesothelioma compensation claim for a US Navy Veteran please call us at 800-714-0303." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

Each year about 3000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. 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, pulp or paper mill workers, millwrights, welders, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, construction workers, rail road workers, and firemen. Typically, the exposure to asbestos for these types of workers occurred in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's.
The average age for a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma is about 70 years old. Frequently victims of mesothelioma are initially misdiagnosed with pneumonia. 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.
