The Advocate says, “If your husband or dad had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work prior to 1982 and he now has lung cancer-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 about compensation.”
WASHINGTON, DC ,April 07, 2021 /Neptune100/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “We are urging a person who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work decades ago and who now has developed lung cancer to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Erik Karst is one of the nation’s leading asbestos attorneys and he and his colleagues have been assisting Navy Veterans and people who develop lung cancer after heavy to extreme workplace exposure to asbestos that occurred decades ago. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and it does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes.
“While our name might suggest we only help Navy Veterans who have recently developed lung cancer-if they had substantial exposure to asbestos prior to 1982-in fact-we try to assist anyone who has developed lung cancer after heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work decades ago. The typical person we assist is over 60 years old and their asbestos exposure occurred before 1982. If the person we have described sounds like your husband or dad-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Erik Karst will almost immediately be able to determine if compensation is possible and what a compensation settlement might look like. The lung cancer diagnosis must be recent-and not older than three or four years.” www.karstvonoiste.com/
