The Mesothelioma Compensation Center is sharing two great pieces of advice in a new informational guide for diagnosed victims of mesothelioma concerned about protecting their loved ones with a will. The group is also taking the time this week to explain to diagnosed victims who call 866-714-6466 how vital it is to have a plan in place that includes a will, as well as teaching them how maintaining transparency with their family on an estate that could potentially involve a substantial financial compensation settlement is a very smart thing to do. http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center is incredibly passionate about making certain a diagnosed victim of this rare form of cancer gets the best possible compensation settlement, and at the same time they would like to explain to the victim how vital it is to have a will in place that is transparent. As the Center would like to explain to a diagnosed victim with one call to 866-714-6466, each week they get calls from family members of a victim who had no will in place. In addition all too often the Center hears from the children of a victim who got kicked to the curb by a new wife or girlfriend when it came to the estate. In many cases the victim's adult children were not allowed to see their dad before he died. http://MesotheliomaCompensationCenter.Com

The Mesothelioma Compensation Center says, "We searched the Internet for information on the subject and came across an April 2014 article in Consumer Reports about wills. After reading the article though, we felt that two great pieces of information pertaining to wills could be passed on to mesothelioma victims."

1. "In one survey by Rocket Lawyer, a legal-­services website, half of respondents with children did not have a will. Also alarming, 41 percent of baby boomers (ages 55 to 64) did not have one."

2. "Dying without a will calls into play intestacy laws, which means the state determines how a persons estate is distributed and how the ­assets are allocated. In other words, if you dont make a will, the state effectively does it for you. In most states, the estate is ­divided among the decedents spouse and children. But with the increasing number of blended families, things can get complicated. So if you want your china or woodworking tools to go to a particular child, its best to put it in writing."
