WASHINGTON, Sept. 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "If you are a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303 if while in the navy you had significant exposure to asbestos and then post navy you were re-exposed to asbestos at work. Financial compensation for a person like this might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars as attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss. We want to emphasize a financial claim like this does not involve suing the navy. It also does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes." www.karstvonoiste.com/
"We could not say this enough times-the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for Navy Veterans and or people who develop lung cancer after being exposed to asbestos in the navy or at work. To qualify the asbestos exposure must have occurred before 1982 and the lung cancer diagnosis must have occurred within the last year. If the individual with lung cancer we have just described sounds like your husband or dad in any state-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to at least get a sense of what your loved one’s compensation might be. As mentioned, it might be significant." 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
