NEW YORK, NY, August 31, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging any US Navy Veteran who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma to call anytime at 800-714-0303 for direct access to some of the nation's top mesothelioma attorneys who specialize in compensation claims. These incredibly skilled attorneys are also extremely knowledgeable about US Navy Veterans who were exposed to asbestos at a US Naval Shipyard. Navy Veterans were frequently forced to stay on their ship 24 hours per day 7 days per week when their ship was in a dry dock and their exposure to asbestos would have been extreme. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Our number one priority is seeing to it that a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma receives the very best possible financial compensation. About three out of every four US Navy Veterans we assist had their heaviest exposure to asbestos at a Navy shipyard. The sailors, in most instances we know about, would wake up in the morning covered with asbestos and their clothing would be covered in it with little way to avoid it. The compensation for these types of US Navy Veterans with mesothelioma can be substantial because they were potentially exposed to asbestos from every part, pipe, or insulation on the ship as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303.
"At the same time, we would like to carefully explain that without some of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys working on their compensation claim, a US Navy Veteran with this rare cancer runs a much higher chance of getting shortchanged." 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 US Navy Veteran with confirmed 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.
High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, manufacturing/factory workers, pulp or paper mill workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, miners, construction workers, insulators, rail road worker, roofers, or firemen. As a rule, these types of workers were exposed to asbestos in the 1950's, 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's. US Navy Veterans make up about one-third of all US Citizens who are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
