"We are advocates for Navy Veterans and people who had heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work and who now have recently diagnosed lung cancer-and we want them to get compensated."
WASHINGTON, DC, June 23, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "We are appealing to the extended family or friends of a career Navy Veteran who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer to ask his wife or adult son-daughter to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if during his service he had significant exposure to asbestos on ships, submarines or at shipyards. A financial compensation settlement package for a person like this might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars-and the claim does not involve suing the navy. The person we are trying to get identified served in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s-and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes.
"We are advocates for Navy Veterans and people who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work and who now have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer. Most people like this or their family members do not realize the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. As we mentioned for a person who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos for a decade plus prior to 1982-the compensation might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars-depending on how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos.
"If the person we have just described sounds like your husband or dad-and his lung cancer diagnosis is recent-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss possible compensation." www.karstvonoiste.com/
Special Note from the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate: "If you husband or dad is a Navy Veteran and just died of recently diagnosed lung cancer and you are certain he had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the Navy-and you possess some of the specific details about this exposure to asbestos-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303-compensation might be significant." 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.
States with the highest incidence of lung cancer include Kentucky, West Virginia, Maine, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Delaware.
