NEW YORK, NY, August 02, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center is offering to assist a person facing a mesothelioma diagnosis because of secondhand exposure to asbestos with information on how to get properly compensated. The group frequently receives calls from people asking the question-how is it possible I have mesothelioma? The first question the group asks is, "What kind of work did your husband or dad do?" In most instances the husband or dad worked at a shipyard, factory, power plant, or in construction where asbestos was brought home on his work clothing. This is also called secondhand exposure to asbestos. The financial compensation for this can frequently be as much as it would have been had it been the actual worker, as the group would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
