BRIGDEPORT, CT, August 31, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Connecticut US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer in Connecticut and prior to 1982 he had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy submarine, ship or at a navy shipyard please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss compensation. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. We should add it does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes.
"What does matter is the Navy Veteran with lung cancer can recall how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos in the navy. The typical Navy Veteran we are attempting to get identified is well over 60 years old and their navy asbestos exposure must have taken place prior to 1982 to qualify for compensation. If the person we have just described sounds like your husband or dad, please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. As mentioned, the compensation for a person like who we have described might be substantial." www.karstvonoiste.com/
