"Most people who develop lung cancer after heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work do not realize that the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too."
LAS VEGAS, NV, August 03, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Nevada US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "If you are a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer and decades ago you had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard 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 exceed one hundred thousand dollars and the claim does not involve suing the navy. The typical person we are trying to identify is older than 60 years old, they served in the navy prior to 1982 and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes.
