Maritime-Shipyard Worker Mesothelioma
Mesothelioma Victims Center
The Mesothelioma Victims Center is very concerned that because of the Coronavirus, 2020 might turn out to be one of the worst years for people with mesothelioma in the US in decades because people who had this rare cancer were diagnosed with COVID-19-not what they really had. The Coronavirus and mesothelioma have similar symptoms including pneumonia, high fever, and shortness of breath. The average age for a person with mesothelioma is 72 years old.
They say, “If your husband or dad had significant exposure to asbestos as a maritime worker, at a shipyard, in the navy or doing any type of work decades and he is now in the hospital with pneumonia, or ‘suspected’ Coronavirus please tell the doctors who are treating him about the asbestos exposure. If the doctors change their mind about Coronavirus and now suspect lung cancer or possible mesothelioma, please call attorney Erik Karst at 800-714-0303. Compensation for mesothelioma might exceed a million dollars. There is no compensation for the Coronavirus. www.karstvonoiste.com
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 maritime or shipyard worker with mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska. www.karstvonoiste.com
High risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include US Navy Veterans, power plant workers, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, manufacturing/factory workers, pulp or paper mill workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, miners, construction workers, insulators, rail road worker, roofers, or firemen. As a rule, these types of workers were exposed to asbestos in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. US Navy Veterans make up about one third of all US Citizens who are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
