"If your husband or dad has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma, please call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if he worked as a construction laborer anywhere in the USA."
WASHINGTON, DC, March 03, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to the Mesothelioma Victims Center, "If your husband or dad has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma, please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if he worked as a construction laborer in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed a million dollars. Frequently people like this shortchange themselves on compensation because they do not think their financial claim will be that valuable. A construction laborer before 1982 could have had significant exposure to asbestos anywhere in the USA.
"Once or twice a year we get a call from a person who has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma and they do not understand how or why they have this rare form of cancer. The first question we ask is tell us about your work history starting with high school or college? About a third of the time the answer is--they worked as a construction laborer on new construction, or demolition of houses or buildings. Other types of laborers who might had significant exposure to asbestos worked as a laborer at a factory, mill, power plant, oil refinery, at a shipyard, or at a printing press-newspaper.
"If the person we have just described sounds like your husband or dad, and he has just been diagnosed with mesothelioma in any state in the USA please call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Erik Karst is one of the nation's leading mesothelioma attorneys and he and his remarkable team put in the extra effort to ensure their clients with this rare cancer receive the best possible compensation results." www.karstvonoiste.com/
