"Also-If your husband or dad was a Navy Veteran and he just passed away from lung cancer please call the lawyers at Karst von Oiste if he had significant exposure to asbestos in the service."
WASHINGTON, NC, April 28, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "We are urging a Navy Veteran who had significant exposure to asbestos on an aircraft carrier or amphibious assault ship prior to 1982-and who now has developed lung cancer to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss possible compensation that might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
"The typical Navy Veteran with lung cancer we are trying to identify is over 60 years old, they served in the navy in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s and their job on the ship put them in constant exposure to asbestos-and or they stayed onboard their ship at a shipyard repairs or an overhaul. Frequently Navy Veterans would be required to stay on their ship for months at a shipyard-in many instances working directly with the shipyard workers. Navy Veteran like this might have had extreme exposure to asbestos.
"If the Navy Veteran we have described sounds like your husband, or your dad and he has recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is one of the nation's leading asbestos exposure attorneys and he specializes in assisting Navy Veterans with lung cancer coast to coast-who had service- related asbestos exposure.

Special Note from the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate: "If your husband or dad was a Navy Veteran and he just passed away from lung cancer please call the lawyers at Karst von Oiste if he had significant exposure to asbestos in the service. His diagnosis of lung cancer must have occurred sometime after 2018. As mentioned, the compensation for a person like this might be substantial and the claim does not involve suing the navy." https://USNavyLungCancer.Com
