WASHINGTON, Jan. 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — According to the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate, "We are appealing to the family of a Navy Veteran or person who has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer anywhere in the USA to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303 if before 1982 they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and it does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes. What does matter is the person can recall some of the specifics of how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos as attorney Erik Karst is always happy to discuss.
"Most people who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s and then develop lung cancer never get compensated-even though many to most should. What people like this do not realize is the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. If your husband or dad has been diagnosed with lung cancer within the last twelve months and he had substantial exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work anywhere in the United States before 1982 please call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss compensation. We think you will be glad you did." www.karstvonoiste.com/
