The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Ce nter says, "We need family members of retired individuals who worked at a power plant, a oil refinery, or a nuclear power plant to contact us if their loved one has been diagnosed with any type of lung cancer, provided the victim was exposed to asbestos at work. In the case of some power plant workers we are talking about individuals that had to brush asbestos off their clothing before they went home. We have talked to numerous victims over the years who describe being covered from head to toe in asbestos. Our initiative is not just about identifying victims of mesothelioma, we are talking about victims who have been diagnosed with any type of lung cancer, with the common denominator being exposure to asbestos at the workplace. The financial compensation for these types of asbestos injury claims can be in the tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars, especially for nonsmokers, and we really do need family members to help us get these individuals identified." If a victim of any type of lung cancer had long term exposure to asbestos in their workplace the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center will direct the victim, or family members to a very capable law firm, that has an established record of achieving superior results for their clients. According to the American Cancer Society, "For nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers." For more information lung cancer victims, or their family members are urged to call the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center at 866-714-6466.
The US states with the highest incidences of lung cancer include:Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Tennessee, West Virginia, Alaska, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Massachusetts, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Vermont.
The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, "Aside from power plant, oil refinery, or nuclear power plants, other high risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include the US Navy, shipyards, manufacturing factories, chemical plants, mines, smelters, aerospace manufacturing facilities, demolition construction work sites, railroads, automotive manufacturing facilities, or auto brake shops. With lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure the lung cancer may not show up until decades after the exposure. Many victims never smoked, and never made the connection between their lung cancer, and their exposure to asbestos. As long as the victim, or their family members can prove the exposure to asbestos, we will do everything possible to help them get what might be significant financial compensation."
