WASHINGTON, DC, August 25, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging the wife or adult son-daughter of a Navy Veteran who has just received news he has lung cancer to 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 financial compensation-if while serving in the navy he had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos. Financial compensation for a person like this might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and the claim does not involve suing the navy. Most Navy Veterans who develop lung cancer after being exposed to asbestos in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s are not aware the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. www.karstvonoiste.com/
