The Advocate is appealing to the family of a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer to call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if they had heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy-compensation might exceed $100,000.
WASHINGTON, DC, August 11, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if in the navy the Veteran had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard where their ship or submarine was being repaired. The financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. A Navy Veteran like this might live in any state and to be eligible their asbestos exposure must have occurred before 1982. The typical Navy Veteran they are trying to get identified is over 60 years old. If a Navy Veteran like this is too sick to call on their own the group is encouraging their wife or adult son-daughter to call on their behalf. www.karstvonoiste.com/
The Advocate says, “Most Navy Veterans who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos while serving in the navy in the 1950s. 1960s or 1970s and who have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer probably do not know that asbestos exposure increases the chance of lung cancer by five times. The $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for people exactly like this.
“If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran or person who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and he had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work prior to 1982 please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss what might be significant financial compensation. We want to emphasize the call to Erik Karst is no obligation.” www.karstvonoiste.com/
High-risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include the US Navy, shipyards, power plants, public utilities, manufacturing factories, chemical plants, oil refineries, mines, smelters, pulp and paper mills, aerospace manufacturing facilities, offshore oil rigs, 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. https://USNavyLungCancer.Com
