The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is appealing to the family of a Navy Veteran with just diagnosed late stage lung cancer to call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if before 1982 the Veteran had navy asbestos exposure.

WASHINGTON, DC, April 13, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran and he has just been diagnosed with late-stage lung cancer and prior to 1982 he had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a navy shipyard-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss possible compensation. To get compensated it is vital a person like this recall the specifics of how they were exposed to asbestos in the navy. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy.

“If the wife or adult children of a Navy Veteran who has lung cancer could ask their loved one about any specifics of how they were exposed to asbestos in the navy it might greatly assist in the compensation process-because with no specifics-compensation might be impossible. A few questions might be:

#1. “What was your job in the navy?”

#2. “Do you recall working around asbestos on a ship-submarine- or at a navy shipyard?”

#3. “Did you ever work in the engine room, machine shop, as a mechanic-on the ship-submarine?”

#4. “Do you recall the names of any shipmates who witnessed your asbestos exposure?”

Note—-The asbestos exposure must have occurred before 1982.

“If you can get some of these questions answered-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. He can be incredibly helpful in this process—as long as he has a starting point.”

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. With lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure the lung cancer may not show up until decades after the exposure. https://USNavyLungCancer.Com

According to the American Cancer Society for nonsmokers who have been exposed to asbestos in their workplace the risk of lung cancer is five times that of unexposed workers.

States with the highest incidence of lung cancer include Kentucky, West Virginia, Maine, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Delaware.

However, a US Navy Veteran or person with mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer could live in any state including New York, Florida, California, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Texas, Iowa, Georgia, Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Idaho, Washington, Oregon or Alaska.
