WASHINGTON, DC, May 26, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer anywhere in the nation to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO at 800-714-0303 if while serving in the navy they had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos-especially if it occurred in a navy ship’s engine room or a submarine’s propulsion center. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed a hundred thousand dollars. If a Navy Veteran like this spent his career in the navy, he now has lung cancer and he had significant exposure to asbestos for over a decade-his compensation might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. The financial claim does not involve suing the navy. www.karstvonoiste.com/
The Advocate says, “The typical Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer we are trying to identify served in the navy on a ship or submarine in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s and there is a very good chance he was required to remain on his ship or boat while it was undergoing repairs or a retrofit at a navy shipyard. The asbestos exposure for a person like this may have been extreme-especially if they worked in a ship’s or submarine’s engine room or propulsion center. If the person we have just described sounds like your husband or dad, and they have just been diagnosed with lung cancer-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO at 800-714-0303 to discuss possible compensation. We think you will be glad you did.” www.karstvonoiste.com/
Important note from the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate: “Most people who have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer after heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work decades ago do not realize the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. If this person sounds like your loved one-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO at 800-714-0303 to discuss financial compensation. Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO is one of the nation’s most skilled asbestos exposure lawyers-and he is an amazing resource for people in this very difficult situation.” www.karstvonoiste.com/
