One of our top priorities is seeing to it that a US Navy Veteran or a US Naval Shipyard worker AKA a 'Yard Bird" receives the very best compensation if they have been diagnosed with mesothelioma
NEW YORK, NY, April 05, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "One of our top priorities is seeing to it that a US Navy Veteran or a US Naval Shipyard worker frequently referred to as a 'Yard Bird' receives the very best financial compensation if they have been diagnosed with mesothelioma. Navy Veterans were on the front line of defending our nation and navy shipyard workers made this possible; in both instances prior to 1980, these groups would have had constant exposure to asbestos on a regular basis.
"We are urging a Navy Veteran or a navy shipyard worker with recently diagnosed mesothelioma, or their family members, to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 so that we can do everything possible to make sure they are at the front of the line when it comes to receiving the best possible financial compensation. To make certain a Navy Veteran receives the very best possible financial compensation, we provide direct access to the nation's most skilled, experienced, and capable mesothelioma attorneys to ensure the best possible financial settlement results, which could be over one million dollars for Veterans." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
Shipyard workers also have one of the highest incidences of mesothelioma in the United States as the Mesothelioma Victims Center would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. "We want to make certain a US Navy Veteran or shipyard worker with mesothelioma receives the very best possible financial compensation and we provide on-the-spot access to the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys who will get the job done." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

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, printers, 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. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
