"The Advocate is urging the family of a Navy Veteran with lung cancer to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if he had navy asbestos exposure-get compensated."
WASHINGTON, DC, June 30, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging the family of a Navy Veteran who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer to please make it a priority to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if their loved one had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy prior to 1982. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed a hundred thousand dollars-and the claim does not involve suing the navy. The typical person we are trying to get identified is over 60 years old and their asbestos exposure typically would have taken place on a navy ship, submarine or at a navy shipyard. To get compensated it does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes.
The Advocate says, "We have endorsed, and we highly recommend attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste because he is one of the nation's leading attorneys when it comes to compensation for Navy Veterans who have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer-and who decades ago had heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy. Attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is also incredibly dedicated to making certain his Navy Veteran clients with lung cancer get compensated-if in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s they had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos. For direct access to attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste please call 800-714-0303." www.karstvonoiste.com/
Typically, the US Navy Veteran who has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer could have been exposed to asbestos decades ago--in the following areas of a US Navy ship-or submarine.
* Engine Room-Reactor-or Engine-Propulsion Room Maintenance
* A Machine Shop-Repair Area
* An Ammunition Magazine
* A Fuel Storage Areas on gas or oil powered ships* As a member of a navy ship or submarine repair crew
* While assisting shipyard workers when their ship or submarine was undergoing repairs at a shipyard
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.
