Mesothelioma Victims Center Urges the Family of a Skilled Trades Construction Worker with Mesothelioma to Call Attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste to Discuss Compensation — and Very Serious Results

HOUSTON, Sept. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The Mesothelioma Victims Center is urging the family of a skilled trades construction worker who has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303 to discuss compensation. Erik Karst is one of the nation’s most skilled mesothelioma attorneys and he will know exactly how to help a person like this-with the goal being they receive the best possible compensation results. Erik Karst and his amazing colleagues at the law firm of Karst von Oiste have been assisting construction and skilled trades workers with mesothelioma for decades and they are responsible for over a billion dollars in financial compensation for people like this.”

The Mesothelioma Victims Center fears that because of the Coronavirus many people who have mesothelioma initially delayed seeing a doctor or they were misdiagnosed with COVID-19-rather than the rare cancer they had. If this has happened to a former construction or skilled trades worker with this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure or their family member—please call attorney Erik Karst the managing partner at the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303.

If mesothelioma is diagnosed in a later stage it is vital to begin the financial compensation process as soon as possible. Financial compensation for a construction worker or skilled trades worker such as a plumber, electrician, welder, pipefitter, mechanic, or machinist might exceed a million dollars depending on how where and when they were exposed to asbestos. The average age for a person with mesothelioma in the US is 72 years old-and they need the support of their family. For specific information about mesothelioma compensation or what is involved please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303.

The Mesothelioma Victims Center is specifically targeting the following types of construction or building trades workers with their best mesothelioma compensation initiative:

  • Carpenters
  • Construction workers
  • Plumbers
  • Electricians
  • Insulators
  • Roofers
  • Welders
  • Boiler Technicians
  • Machinists
  • Pipefitters
  • Mechanics


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 person with mesothelioma could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Texas, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, or Alaska.

As a rule, these types of workers were exposed to asbestos in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.
