"Most people who had exposure to asbestos in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s in the navy-work-and who now have lung cancer do not know the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too."
WASHINGTON, DC, March 10, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging a Navy Submarine Veteran who has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer in any state or their family to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 for an insightful conversation about how lung cancer compensation works and what the person's financial compensation claim might be worth. Financial compensation for a Navy Submarine Veteran might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars-depending on how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos as Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss with the Navy Veteran or their family. www.karstvonoiste.com/
The Advocate says, "Most people who had significant exposure to asbestos in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s in the navy or at work-and who now have lung cancer do not know the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. Unlike a navy surface ship-submarines do not allow the crew to go on deck to get some fresh air. Further--most navy submarine crews were cross trained in various duties-so they could fill in as needed. Asbestos exposure on a navy submarine could have been extreme prior to 1982-especially if the crew was-required to stay on board their boat during shipyard repairs or retrofits.
"If the Navy Veteran we have described sounds like your loved one and he has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Erik Karst is one of the nation's most skilled mesothelioma attorneys and he is a much better option than a 'free' booklet, kit, guide or calculator or other such nonsense." 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.
