"Financial compensation for a Navy Veteran who had heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy and has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer might exceed one hundred thousand dollars-or more."
KANSAS CITY, MO, June 22, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the Missouri US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate, "If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran and he has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer and prior to 1982 he had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a navy shipyard-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss what might turn out to be significant compensation. Financial compensation for a Navy Veteran who had heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy and has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer might exceed one hundred thousand dollars-and the claim does not involve suing the navy. It does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes.
"Most Navy Veterans who develop lung cancer after being exposed to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard never get compensated because they do not realize the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. If the person we have just described is a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer and he had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Financial compensation for a person like this might be substantial as Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss." www.karstvonoiste.com/
