The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “If you loved one had heavy exposure to asbestos decades ago at work or in the navy and they just died of ‘suspected mesothelioma’ please do not cremate them before an autopsy can be performed. Please do this.”

WASHINGTON, DC, April 15, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Mesothelioma Victims Center is appealing to the family of a Navy Veteran or person who just died of what the doctors are referring to as ‘possible mesothelioma’ or ‘extremely aggressive lung cancer’ to not cremate their loved one until an autopsy can be performed to establish the actual cause of death. If the family is certain their loved one had significant exposure to asbestos prior to 1982 in the navy or at work the potential for mesothelioma and or lung cancer must be explored in a situation like this and the only way possible to do this is with an autopsy. Compensation for a person with mesothelioma might exceed one million dollars. Compensation for a person with asbestos exposure lung cancer might exceed one hundred thousand dollars.

The typical age for a person with mesothelioma in the US is about 72 years old. Not everyone who is suggested to have died from the Coronavirus in the last year-actually died from it. There is no compensation for a person who was misdiagnosed with the Coronavirus-when in fact they had mesothelioma. Mesothelioma, lung cancer and the Coronavirus all have similar symptoms. https://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

According to the Mesothelioma Victims Center, “If your loved had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s and they are now in the hospital with what they are calling the Coronavirus-please tell the treating physicians about their exposure to asbestos. If upon taking a second look the doctors determine in might be mesothelioma or any type of lung cancer-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss what to do next. Under no circumstances cremate a person like this without an autopsy.”

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, shipyard workers, steel mill workers, oil refinery workers, factory workers, plumbers, electricians, welders, pipefitters, millwrights, miners, auto mechanics, machinists, pulp or paper mill workers, printers, firemen, railroad workers and construction workers. In most instances people with mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. https://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 person who has been diagnosed with ‘possible mesothelioma’ could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.
