The Advocate says, “If your husband or dad was a Navy Veteran and he just died of recently diagnosed lung cancer please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste about compensation if your loved one had navy asbestos exposure.”

WASHINGTON, DC, April 21, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging the family of a Navy Veteran who just passed away from lung cancer to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303-if their loved one had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy prior to 1982-and if their cancer diagnosis had occurred within the last two or three years. The typical Navy Veteran the Advocate is trying to identify was over 60 years old and he would have served on a navy ship, submarine or spent time at a shipyard-while their ship-submarine was being repaired. Financial compensation for a person or family with a loved one like this might exceed $100,000 and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes.

The Advocate says, “Most Navy Veterans who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy or after the navy-and then develop lung cancer-never get compensated-even though the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. If the person we have described sounds like you husband or dad-he had lung cancer-and he just passed away-please call attorney Erik Karst at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss compensation-again provided he was diagnosed with lung cancer no more than three years ago.”

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, asbestos exposure lung cancer can happen in any state including California, New York, Texas, Florida, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Montana, Idaho, Arizona, Washington, Oregon or Alaska.
