The Advocate says, “If your husband or dad was a skilled trades worker in the navy or in the private sector and before 1982 he had asbestos exposure please call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if he now has lung cancer.”

WASHINGTON, DC, February 23, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “If you are a Navy Veteran who learned a skilled trade in the navy or at work and you have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer, please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if before 1982 you had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy-work. Financial compensation for a person like this might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and the claim does not involve suing the navy or in most instances your employer. Compensation is based on the specifics of how the person was exposed to asbestos in the navy or at work.

“The kind of person we are trying to identify has been diagnosed with lung cancer within the last twelve months, their asbestos exposure took place prior to 1982 and they were a boiler technician, plumber, machinist, mechanic, electrician, welder, insulator or a repairman. Most people like this never get compensated because they do not realize the $30 billion dollar asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. If the individual-we have just described sounds like your husband or dad, please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss possible financial compensation.”

Important compensation tip from the Advocate. “If your husband or dad has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and he has told you he had routine exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s-please ask him to list a few specific examples if possible. It is this vital information that will become the foundation for his compensation. The more specific the information about asbestos exposures the better as attorney Erik Karst is always happy to discuss at 800-714-0303.”

High-risk workplaces for asbestos exposure include the US Navy, shipyards, power plants, public utilities, manufacturing factories, chemical plants, oil refineries, mines, smelters, pulp and paper mills, aerospace manufacturing facilities, offshore oil rigs, demolition construction work sites, railroads, automotive manufacturing facilities, or auto brake shops.
