The lung cancer diagnosis and your loved one's death must have happened in the last twelve months. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed one hundred thousand dollars and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes. What does matter is the family will need to know the specifics of how their loved one was exposed to asbestos.
"Financial compensation for a Navy Veteran or person like this is based on the specifics of how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos. In a situation involving a Navy Veteran who has just pasted away from lung cancer and who also had significant exposure to asbestos the best evidence might be a shipmate who witnessed your loved one's asbestos exposure on a navy ship, or submarine. Otherwise, the family will need to know at least some of the specifics about your loved one's asbestos exposure. It is also incredibly important that the asbestos exposure took place prior to 1982 as attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss at 800-714-0303." www.karstvonoiste.com/
