"If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran and he has just been diagnosed with lung cancer-please call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if your loved had navy asbestos exposure."
ATLANTA, GA, August 27, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Georgia US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "We are urging the wife or adult son-daughter of a Navy Veteran who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer to make it a priority to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if while in the navy their loved one had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard where their submarine or ship was undergoing repairs. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy as attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss.
"Most people have heard about mesothelioma and financial compensation for this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Most Navy Veterans or people who develop lung cancer and who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the service or at work almost never get compensated-even though the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran and he has just been diagnosed with lung cancer-please call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if your loved had navy asbestos exposure. Financial compensation for a person like this might be substantial depending on how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos." www.karstvonoiste.com/
