WASHINGTON, Nov. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “We are urging the family if a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer in any state to please call the remarkable lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303 if their loved one also had heavy exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a navy shipyard. A financial compensation settlement for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. The typical person we are trying to identify is over 60 years old and their asbestos exposure in the navy took place in the 1960s-1970s. It does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes.
“What does matter is the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for Navy Veterans who have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer and who had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy decades ago. As mentioned, the compensation for a person like this might exceed a hundred thousand dollars.
“If you are a member of the American Legion or VFW and you have a Navy Veteran friend who has lung cancer–please ask his wife or son-daughter to call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303-if the Veteran was exposed to asbestos in the navy. The lawyers at Karst von Oiste specialize in assisting people exactly like this.” 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
According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.
