The center offers a checklist for family members, helping them to ensure that they are covering all medical expenses associated with this rare form of cancer
WASHINGTON, Jan. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, "Because of a recent experience we want to talk to the family members of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma, who wants nothing to do with attorneys, or mesothelioma. Potentially mesothelioma compensation can be in the hundreds of thousands, or millions of dollars. We recently spoke to the son of a lifetime residential and commercial construction worker diagnosed with mesothelioma who wanted nothing to do with attorneys, or compensation for this rare form of cancer."
"In instances like this we try to make certain the diagnosed victim's family is not stuck with what could be enormous medical costs, or related expenses. This is where we step in and help the diagnosed victim's family develop what we call a "Plan B". Basically we help the family develop a plan to make sure the expenses related to this incredibly rare form of cancer are covered, because we do not want any family left with a potentially enormous financial burden." For more information family members of a diagnosed victim of mesothelioma can call the Mesothelioma Victims Center anytime at 866-714-6466. http://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
In addition to the "Plan B" service, the Mesothelioma Victims Center strongly encourages families of diagnosed victims of mesothelioma to have the following key components in place-even if the diagnosed victim does not want to pursue a mesothelioma compensation claim:
