Call us for instant access to some of the nation's most skilled and experienced attorneys that consistently overachieve when it comes to financial compensation they obtain for their clients
NEW YORK, NY, February 15, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "We are urging a coal or hard rock miner who has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma, or their family, to call us for instant access to some of the nation's most skilled and experienced attorneys who consistently overachieve when it comes to financial compensation they obtain for their clients.
"A miner with mesothelioma that calls us at 800-714-0303 will receive a detailed explanation as to why it is so incredibly important to have one of these amazing attorneys representing a person like this or a family dealing with this overwhelming situation.
"As we would like to explain anytime at 800-714-0303, some of the nation's most qualified and capable mesothelioma attorneys will, in most instances, take a coal or hard rock miner's mesothelioma compensation claim themselves. These experts are passionate about making certain that people with mesothelioma receive the best possible financial compensation and take these cases personally, as if they were representing a family member. In other words, mesothelioma compensation for a miner is personal and they do not want anyone with this rare cancer to get shortchanged on compensation." http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
The Mesothelioma Victims Center fears that many coal, or hard rock miners recently diagnosed with mesothelioma will forgo compensation as they live in small towns and not have the resources to understand the true value of their financial compensation for this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure. The outcome for avoiding a compensation claim or going with ill-trained attorneys could be a loss of significant compensation; potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. The group wants people like this to understand there are extremely skilled and qualified legal professionals out there eager to take on a claim like this-regardless of what state the diagnosed person lives in. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
In 2016, about 728 million short tons of coal were produced in 25 states. Five states produced a total of about 509 million short tons, or about 70% of total U.S. coal production.
