Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center Launches New Initiative Aimed At Educating Lung Cancer Or Mesothelioma Victims About Asbestos Exposure And Compensation
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center now has a new initiative focused on educating diagnosed victims of mesothelioma, or lung cancer victims who were exposed to asbestos at work. As part of this new initiative the group is strongly encouraging diagnosed victims of lung cancer or mesothelioma to call them anytime at 866-714-6466, so they can talk about compensation possibilities with the victim, or their families. http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com

The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, "We are certain most people have heard about mesothelioma, asbestos, and significant financial compensation for this rare form of cancer. Unfortunately, we fear perhaps thousands of lung cancer victims each year succumb to their disease without knowledge that they could have also been eligible for compensation from the Asbestos Trust Funds if they had long term exposure to asbestos at work. For these reasons we are launching a campaign to better educate diagnosed victims of mesothelioma or any type of lung cancer."
According to the CDC, "More people in the United States die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. This is true for both men and women. In 2009 (the most numbers available).
- 205,974 people in the United States were diagnosed with lung cancer, including 110,190 men and 95,784 women.
- 158,081 people in the United States died from lung cancer, including 87,694 men and 70,387 women
What factors affect the risk of developing an asbestos-related disease?
According to the National Cancer Institute several factors can help to determine how asbestos exposure affects an individual.
- Dose (how much asbestos an individual was exposed to).
- Duration (how long an individual was exposed).
- Size, shape, and chemical makeup of the asbestos fibers.
- Source of the exposure.
- Individual risk factors, such as smoking and pre-existing lung disease
The group is urging lung cancer victims who had long term exposure to asbestos while at work, or a family member of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, to call the victims center for on-the-spot access the nation's most competent mesothelioma attorneys or asbestos exposure law firms.

"According to the CDC, high risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include: the US Navy, shipyards in California, Virginia, Maryland, Louisiana, or Washington, power plants in Massachusetts, Florida, Pennsylvania, or Missouri, manufacturing factories in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Indiana, or Illinois, chemical plants in Louisiana, or New Jersey, oil refineries in California, or Texas, smelters in West Virginia, Montana, or Idaho, aerospace manufacturing facilities in California, Washington, or Kansas, demolition construction sites, railroads repair yards, automotive manufacturing facilities, or auto brake shops, especially if the exposure to asbestos took place in the 1950s, through the 1980s. http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com
One unfortunate aspect to mesothelioma and lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure, is that it often takes decades for cancer to manifest and begin to show signs. Many mesothelioma victims have never picked up a cigarette, nor do they make the connection between asbestos exposure and cancer. As long as the victim or their family members can prove evidence that exposure to asbestos took place, we will do everything possible to help them get significant financial compensation."
