"If your husband or dad now has lung cancer and he had significant exposure to asbestos on the job or in the navy please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303."
WASHINGTON, DC, March 09, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran and he has just been diagnosed with lung cancer please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if he had significant 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. Most people like this never get compensated because they do not realize the $30 billion dollar asbestos trust funds were set up for them too.
"We receive phone calls all the time from widows of Navy Veterans who just died of lung cancer and when we ask them about how their loved one was exposed to asbestos on a ship, submarine or at a shipyard--and they frquently do not know. Without specific information about how a Navy Veteran or person was exposed to asbestos in the navy or at work it is almost impossible to pursue a compensation claim-if a person like this recently has developed lung cancer. To qualify the person who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer within the last 12 months and their asbestos exposure in the navy or at work must have occurred before 1982.
"If your husband or dad has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and he had significant exposure tom asbestos on the job or in the navy please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 for a conversation about compensation. Again-it is vital they recall the specifics of how they were exposed to asbestos before 1982." www.karstvonoiste.com/
