"If your husband or dad now has lung cancer and he had navy asbestos exposure prior to 1982-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss compensation."
WILMINGTON, DE, September 03, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the Delaware US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate, "We are appealing to a Navy Veteran who has just learned they have lung cancer to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if while in the navy they had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard where their ship or submarine was undergoing repairs or a retrofit. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed a $100,000 and we need to emphasize the claim does not involve suing the navy.
"In many instances the Navy Veteran we are trying to identify was exposed to asbestos in the navy and who now has lung cancer went onto a career as a skilled trades worker or some other type of work where they were re-exposed to asbestos all over again. In other instances, the Navy Veteran had such extreme exposure in the navy-that was all it took. People who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work have a five times greater chance of developing lung cancer than someone who had little to no exposure to asbestos.
"If your husband or dad now has lung cancer and he had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy prior to 1982-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to explore the possibility of what might turn out to be significant financial compensation." www.karstvonoiste.com/
