The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging the family of a Navy Veteran who now has lung cancer to call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste if the Veteran has navy asbestos exposure before 1982-compensation may exceed $100,000.

WASHINGTON, DC, April 27, 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 prior to 1982 the Veteran had significant exposure to exposure in the navy prior to 1982.

“The kind of Navy Veteran who would have had the most asbestos exposure prior to 1982 probably maintained a ship’s-submarine’s-engine room-propulsion center, worked as a mechanic, welder, plumber, electrician, repairman. machinist or was a member of a repair crew. Compensation for a Navy Veteran like this who had heavy exposure to asbestos prior to 1982-and who has recently diagnosed lung cancer might exceed $100,000 as attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss at 800-714-0303.

“To get the best possible financial compensation a Navy Veteran with lung cancer must be able to provide some of the specifics of how they were exposed to asbestos in the navy. Without this information financial compensation becomes almost impossible. If the Navy Veteran recalls routine exposure to asbestos on a ship, submarine or at a shipyard-before 1982-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303-if their lung cancer diagnosis is within the last twelve months. As mentioned, financial compensation for a person like this might be significant.”
