ALBUQUERQUE, NM, August 13, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the New Mexico US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate, "We have endorsed attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to ensure a Navy Veteran with lung cancer gets compensated if they had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a navy shipyard prior to 1982. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and we want to emphasize the financial claim does not involve suing the navy as attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss at 800-714-0303.

Important Note from the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate: "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.
