"The Advocate is very focused on Navy Veterans who have lung cancer and who had heavy exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or a shipyard-is because people like this should get compensated."
WASHINGTON, DC, May 21, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate, "We are the nation's leading advocate for Navy Veterans who have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer-and who decades ago had significant exposure to asbestos on any type of navy ship including a supply ship, ammunition ship or oiler. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed one hundred thousand dollars and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes.
"The typical person we are trying to identify is over 60 years old-and their exposure to asbestos probably took place in the 1950s, 1960s, or 1970s. To get the financial compensation job done for a person like this we strongly recommend attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste. Attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is one of the nation's leading compensation experts for Navy Veterans who develop lung cancer-after being exposed to asbestos in the navy. For direct access to attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste please call 800-714-0303." www.karstvonoiste.com/
The reason the Advocate is so focused on Navy Veterans who have developed lung cancer and who had heavy exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard-is because people like this rarely get compensated-even though they should. Navy Veterans who served on supply or ammunition ships and or oilers had routine exposure to asbestos-because these types of ships would have been covered with it. If the person we have just described sounds like you or your loved one and the lung cancer was diagnosed within the last few years-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. "We think you will be glad you did." 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
