"The Advocate recommends attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to ensure a Navy Veteran who now has lung cancer gets compensated-if they had navy asbestos exposure prior to 1982."
MEMPHIS, TN, August 26, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Tennessee US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate recommends, and they have endorsed attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to make certain a Navy Veteran who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer gets compensated if they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy prior to 1982. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy, nor does it matter if the person smoked cigarettes. What does matter is the Navy Veteran who has lung cancer can recall the specifics of how, when and where they were exposed to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard as attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss at 800-714-0303. www.karstvonoiste.com/
The Advocate says, "If your husband or dad served in the navy in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s and he has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer-please ask him if he had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard? If the answer is yes--please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss compensation. Based on the severity of your loved one's exposure to asbestos their compensation might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars." www.karstvonoiste.com/
