"While our primary mission is ensuring a Navy Veteran who has lung cancer gets compensated if before 1982-they had heavy exposure to asbestos-we also assist people who had workplace exposure as well."
WASHINGTON, DC, January 12, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "While our primary mission is ensuring a Navy Veteran who has lung cancer gets compensated if before 1982-they had heavy exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard we want to emphasize we also assist people who had significant exposure to asbestos at work and who also have been recently diagnosed with lung cancer. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000.
"To get the financial compensation job done for a person like this anywhere in the nation we recommend attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste and we want to emphasize Erik is always available to a person like this at 800-714-0303. Erik Karst is one of the nation's leading asbestos exposure attorneys and he and his colleagues at Karst von Oiste have been assisting victims of asbestos exposure lung cancer for decades and they are responsible for over a billion dollars in compensation for people like this." www.karstvonoiste.com/
For a person with recently diagnosed lung cancer who had substantial exposure to asbestos before 1982 attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste would suggest the following:
*"Try to develop a list of the specifics of how, where and when you were exposed to asbestos in the navy or at work before 1982.
* "Do you have contact information for shipmates or coworkers who might have witnessed your exposure to asbestos.
* "Sometimes a coworker or shipmate might recall things the person with lung cancer can no longer recall. The more specific the information the better the compensation as Erik Karst is always happy to discuss at 800-714-0303." 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
