Most people in the home remodeling business with this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure might think the value of their financial claim may not be significant-this could be a huge mistake
NEW YORK, NY, November 30, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center is appealing to a home remodeling contractor or anyone who has worked on a jobsite like this to call anytime at 800-714-0303 if they have been recently diagnosed with mesothelioma. Most people in the home remodeling business with this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure might think the value of their financial claim may not be significant enough to warrant looking into potential compensation; the group believes in many to most cases this could be a huge mistake.
The Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to explain that depending what types of building products the contractor or construction worker was exposed to-could mean the mesothelioma compensation claim could be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars or much more. http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com
The types of asbestos-laden building products or material a remodeling contractor or worker could have come into contact include:
* Plumbing Gaskets and Valves
* Boilers or Furnaces
* Roofing Material
* Ceramic Floor Tile
* Insulated Plumbing Pipes
* Insulated Electrical Wires or Fuse Boxes
* Linoleum Flooring
* Carpet Pads
The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "What we don't want to see happen to a remodeling contractor or construction worker who was exposed to asbestos in residential or commercial remodeling is to sell themselves short on compensation if they have recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma. Depending on how well the diagnosed person can recall where, when, and how they were exposed to asbestos, the potential financial compensation could come close to one million dollars. A witness or coworker who can confirm the exposure would be extremely useful to a very skilled and experienced mesothelioma attorney as we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
