The Mesothelioma Victims Center is appealing to the family of a Navy Veteran who had heavy exposure to asbestos to be sure and tell his doctors about the exposure. Too many people with mesothelioma are being diagnosed with COVID-19.

NEW YORK, NY, May 26, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “We are very concerned that Navy Veterans or people who had extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work are not getting properly diagnosed with mesothelioma-instead they are being diagnosed with COVID-19. The Coronavirus-COVID-19 has very similar symptoms to mesothelioma-such as pneumonia. If your Navy Veteran-family member had extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy and they have been diagnosed with COVID-19 please tell the attending doctors your loved one also had heavy exposure to asbestos-and request they take a look at his chest X-rays as we would be happy to discuss at 800-714-0303.

“We have seen numerous news stories where in some of the Coronavirus hot spots such as New York City, or New Orleans-if a person on a ventilator dies—the death certificate probably says-COVID-19. There is no autopsy that would confirm an underlying medical condition such as mesothelioma. Which all means-no compensation-because the family never knew their loved one had mesothelioma.” https://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com

The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “If-by the grace of God your loved one lives in a state that has not been overwhelmed with COVID-19 and he has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma please 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 people with mesothelioma for decades and they are responsible for over a billion dollars in financial compensation for people like this. Erik Karst the founding partner of Karst von Oiste is always more than happy to explain the financial compensation process for a person like this-or their family-initially over the phone.”
