WASHINGTON, June 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran who just passed away from lung cancer please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if while serving in the navy he had significant exposure to asbestos on a ship, submarine or at a shipyard. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed a hundred thousand dollars and the claim does not involve suing the navy. What most Navy Veterans who develop lung cancer and or their families do not realize is the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust fund was set up for them too.
"Unfortunately, the window to get compensated for a Navy Veteran who died of lung cancer and or mesothelioma closes in a few years after they pass away-so if the person we have just described sounds like your husband or dad-and you are certain he had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos please call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. As we mentioned the financial compensation for a person like this might exceed one hundred thousand dollars. For a career Navy Veteran with lung cancer-and who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos the compensation might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars as attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss." www.karstvonoiste.com/
Most Navy Veterans or people who develop lung cancer after heavy exposure to asbestos in the service or at work do not realize the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. Financial compensation for a person who develops lung cancer after asbestos exposure at work or in the navy prior to 1982 is based on how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos. For more information-a Navy Veteran or person with lung cancer who had substantial exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work prior to 1982-is urged to-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. www.karstvonoiste.com/
