The Mesothelioma Victims Center is appealing to the family who’s loved one has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma to call 800-714-0303 for direct access to attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste-to ramp up the compensation process ASAP.

HOUSTON, TX, June 23, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging a machinist who has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma in any state or their family to call 800-714-0303 for direct access to attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste. Erik Karst and his colleagues at the law firm of Karst von Oiste have been assisting Navy Veterans and civilian machinists with mesothelioma for decades and they are responsible for over a billion dollars in financial compensation results for people like this. Because of the Coronavirus chances are the machinist was initially diagnosed with pneumonia or COVID-19 –not mesothelioma. Because of this the machinist probably has late stage mesothelioma.

The group says, “Our top priority is seeing to it that people with mesothelioma receives the best possible financial compensation results. If you know for a fact your loved one-machinist had extreme exposure to asbestos-please tell the medical doctors who are treating him. We are extremely concerned that 2020 might be one of the worst years for compensation for people with mesothelioma in decades-because the Coronavirus and mesothelioma have similar symptoms-including pneumonia. We fear most hospital doctors upon looking at a person with mesothelioma will call what they see the Coronavirus. If this happens–and your loved one has-had mesothelioma-he will not get compensated.

“Without a biopsy, or a pathology report that confirms the mesothelioma financial compensation probably does not happen. If you husband or dad is in a nursing home and you are certain he had significant exposure to asbestos decades ago-please tell the chief medical officer at the nursing home about this fact and request a chest x-ray. We are concerned about people with mesothelioma in nursing homes getting misdiagnosed with the Coronavirus as we would be happy to discuss at 800-714-0303.” https://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Mesothelioma Victims Center is especially focused in on assisting a machinist or mechanic with mesothelioma who was exposed to asbestos while working for:

* The US Navy

* A factory

* A shipyard

* A power plant or public utility

* A steel mill

* A maritime company

* An oil refinery

* An oil/gas production field

* A mine

* A railroad

Each year about 3000 US citizens will be diagnosed with mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos. 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, 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.

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 US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Mississippi, Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.
