WASHINGTON, Sept. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "We are appealing to the immediate family of a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303 if while in the service he had significant exposure to asbestos. A compensation claim for a person like this might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and it will be based on the specifics of how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos. As a rule-a Navy Veteran like this had their primary exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a navy shipyard as Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss.
"While most people have heard about mesothelioma and significant compensation related to this rare form of cancer caused by asbestos exposure most people are not aware that the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were also set up for people who also had significant exposure to asbestos prior to 1982 and then develop lung cancer. The people we are referring to are Navy Veterans or people who had significant exposure to asbestos at work and then end up developing lung cancer.
"If the person we have just described sounds like your husband or dad please make it a priority to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss financial compensation that might exceed a hundred thousand dollars. It does not matter what state you live in-Erik Karst and his amazing team at Karst von Oiste assist people like this nationwide." www.karstvonoiste.com/
