WASHINGTON, DC, November 17, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is the nation's premier advocacy group for Navy Veterans who have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer and who before 1982 had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy and or in most instances a former employer.
To get the financial compensation job done for a person like this the Advocate has endorsed and they recommend attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste.

The Advocate says, "The average person with recently diagnosed lung cancer and who had substantial exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s is not aware the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too.
