"If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran in Iowa and he has lung cancer please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if he had navy asbestos exposure."
DES MOINES, IA, August 20, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the Iowa US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate, "If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran in Iowa or anywhere in the nation and he has just been diagnosed with lung cancer please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if while in the navy he had routine 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 a hundred thousand dollars, and the claim does not involve suing the navy. It does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes.
"Most people who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work and then develop lung cancer never get compensated-even though the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for people exactly like this. If you have a friend or neighbor who is a Navy Veteran and he had asbestos exposure in the navy or at work in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s please ask his wife or adult son-daughter to call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss possible compensation that might turn out to be substantial." www.karstvonoiste.com/
