"If your husband or dad is a Career Navy Veteran who now has lung cancer anywhere in the nation--please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 about compensation."
WASHINGTON, DC, December 08, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate, "If your husband or dad is a Career Navy Veteran who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer anywhere in the nation--please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if he had repeated exposures to asbestos in the navy. Financial compensation for a person like this might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. We also need to emphasize the compensation claim does not involve suing the navy and it does not matter if he ever smoked cigarettes.
"Most Navy Veterans who decades ago had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy and then develop lung cancer never get compensated-even though they should. The $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for people who had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work-and who then develop lung cancer.
"What makes a Career Navy Veteran so unique is they would have probably supervised sailors in the upkeep or repairs that were made to the ships or submarines they served on, and they probably spent a substantial amount of time at a shipyard overseeing or assisting in the repair or ships or submarines they were serving on. Most Career Navy Veterans like this probably had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos throughout their time in the navy. If the individual-we have just described sounds like your husband or dad who now lives in any state-please call attorney Erik Karst of Kaest von Oiste at 800-714-0303 for a discussion about compensation. We think you will be glad you did." www.karstvonoiste.com/
High-risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include the US Navy, shipyards, power plants, public utilities, manufacturing factories, chemical plants, oil refineries, mines, smelters, pulp and paper mills, aerospace manufacturing facilities, offshore oil rigs, demolition construction work sites, railroads, automotive manufacturing facilities, or auto brake shops. With lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure the lung cancer may not show up until decades after the exposure. https://USNavyLungCancer.Com
According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.
