The Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging a school or hospital maintenance person with mesothelioma or their family to not undervalue their compensation and to call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303-for some honest advice.”

WASHINGTON, DC, July 01, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Mesothelioma Victims Center says, “We are urging the wife or adult son-daughter of a former school or hospital maintenance person who has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma to not undervalue the potential financial compensation for your loved one and to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 for specific information about the potential value of a financial claim. Erik Karst is one of the nation’s most skilled mesothelioma attorneys and he will be able to assist a person like this with what might turn out to be significant financial compensation. Mesothelioma compensation is based upon how, where and when a person with this rare cancer was exposed to asbestos.

“When you hear-‘school or hospital maintenance person’ most people would probably not think asbestos exposure-but in fact these types of people could have had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos on a regular basis. Prior to 1982 most elementary, middle schools and high schools had asbestos in the boiler room, in the school’s class rooms, on insulated steam pipes, on the roof, etc. The same could be said about community colleges, universities, and hospitals. Prior to 1982 most of these types of workplaces were covered with asbestos-up to an including ceiling tiles—-and a maintenance person would have been around asbestos all-of the time.

“If the person we have described sounds like your husband or dad in any state-and he has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Financial compensation for a school or hospital maintenance person with mesothelioma might exceed a million dollars as attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss.”

The Mesothelioma Victims Center is pointing to the following types of facilities where a maintenance man or custodian could have been exposed to asbestos:

* An Elementary School
* A Hospital
* A University
* A Municipal auditorium or stadium
* A Middle School
* A Nursing Home
* A High School
* A Community College
* A VA Hospital

The EPA now has a website that discusses schools and asbestos exposure. Nothing like this existed prior to 1980:

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, shipyard workers, steel mill workers, oil refinery workers, factory workers, plumbers, electricians, welders, pipefitters, millwrights, pipefitters, miners, auto mechanics, machinists, pulp or paper mill workers, printers, firemen, rail road workers and construction workers. In most instances people with mesothelioma were exposed to asbestos in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.

According to the CDC 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 maintenance man or a boiler technician diagnosed victim of mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska. https://MesotheliomaVictimsCenter.Com
