"We are urging a Navy Veteran with lung cancer in South Dakota to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO at 800-714-0303 if when in the navy they had asbestos exposure."
SIOUX FALLS, SD, June 15, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the South Dakota US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate, "We are urging a Navy Veteran with lung cancer anywhere in South Dakota to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO at 800-714-0303 if while in the navy they had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine, or at a ship prior to 1982. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed a hundred thousand dollars-and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes. The typical person we are trying to help is older than 60 years old.
"Most Navy Veterans who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a navy shipyard in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s-and who now have been diagnosed with lung cancer are not typically aware the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too-in South Dakota and nationwide. If the person we have just described sounds like your husband or dad-and he has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO at 800-714-0303 to discuss what might be substantial compensation." www.karstvonoiste.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.
The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303.
