The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging a Vietnam War era Navy Veteran who now has lung cancer to call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 about compensation if he had heavy exposure to asbestos on a ship or a shipyard.

WASHINGTON, DC, May 11, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “If you are a Navy Veteran who served during the Vietnam War and you have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer, please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-00303 if you had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine, shipyard or while serving in the Seabees. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. What does matter is a person like this be able to recall the specifics of how they were exposed to asbestos-before 1982.

“Most Navy Veterans and or people who now have lung cancer are not aware of the fact that the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too-if they had routine exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work before 1982-and their lung cancer diagnosis has happened within the last 12 months. Many Navy Veterans who served in Vietnam probably had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos during the Vietnam War-if the served on a ship, submarine, were assigned to a shipyard or they were a member of the US Navy Seabees.

“If the person we have just described sounds like you or your loved one, and as mentioned their lung cancer diagnosis is recent, please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 as long as they can get specific about their asbestos exposure.”
