"The Advocate is urging a Navy Veteran NCO-Officer who now has lung cancer to make compensation a priority and call attorney Erik Karst at 800-714-0303 if they had navy asbestos exposure."
WASHINGTON, DC, May 04, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is appealing to the family of a Navy Veteran NCO or Officer who has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer to make financial compensation a top priority and call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if before 1982 the Veteran had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy. Financial compensation for a person like this might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and the claim does not involve suing the navy. Additionally, it does not matter if the Veteran smoked cigarettes. www.karstvonoiste.com/
The Advocate says, "To get compensated a Navy Veteran who has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer must be able to get specific about their exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard that occurred before 1982. It is this incredibly important information that will become the basis for a compensation claim as attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss at 800-714-0303.
"It would not be uncommon for an NCO or officer to supervise or participate with navy sailors who were making repairs on a ship, or submarine at sea or in their home port or at a shipyard where their ship or submarine was undergoing major repairs or an overhaul. A Navy Veteran like this might have had ongoing exposure to asbestos for years-or even decades as attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss at 800-714-0303-as long as the Veteran can recall at least some specifics about their exposure." 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
