HOUSTON, Aug. 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging the family of a Navy Veteran who now has lung cancer and who had heavy exposure to asbestos in the service in the 1960's or 1970's to please call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Financial compensation for person like this might exceed $100,000-especially if the Navy Veteran's exposure to asbestos occurred on a submarine. The typical Navy Veteran the group is trying to identify is well over 60 years old and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes. Most Navy Veterans or people with lung cancer and who had significant exposure to asbestos prior to 1982 do not realize the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too.
The Advocate says, "If your husband or dad has lung cancer and he is a Navy Veteran who served on a navy submarine or ship-please ask him if he was constantly being exposed to asbestos. Again, the person we are trying to identify is over 60 years old-and we are certain he will recall the exposure. If he answers-yes-he was exposed to asbestos-please call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303.
"The law firm of Karst von Oiste is one of the nation's leading law firms that specializes in compensation for asbestos exposure lung cancer and mesothelioma and they will know exactly how to help a person like this. The person's compensation does not involve a lawsuit against the navy. For direct access to the lawyers at Karst von Oiste please call 800-714-0303 anytime. We think you will be glad you did." www.karstvonoiste.com/
