The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is appealing to the family of a Navy Veteran who has lung cancer to call the lawyers at Karst von Oiste if their loved one had asbestos exposure in the navy prior to 1982-compensation might exceed $100,000.

WASHINGTON, DC, October 19, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “We are urging the wife of a career Navy Veteran or their family members to please call the lawyers at Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if their husband or dad has lung cancer and he had significant exposure to asbestos in navy on a ship, a submarine or at a shipyard. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. The typical person we are trying to identify is over 60 years old and his asbestos exposure in the service occurred in the 1960s or 1970s. Typically when a Navy Veteran’s wife or family call-they are stunned that the process is so simple.

“Most Navy Veterans with lung cancer-and who decades ago had significant exposure to asbestos are not aware the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. We know that because of the Coronavirus and everything else going on in 2020 many Navy Veterans with lung cancer-and who had heavy exposure to asbestos never pursue financial compensation. If this sounds like your husband or your dad-please call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. This is worth your time.”

Special Note from the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate: “If your loved one is a Navy Veteran-over 60 years old, he had heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy and he is now in the hospital with ‘suspected’ Coronavirus-please tell his treating physicians about his exposure to asbestos.” https://USNavyLungCancer.Com

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 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.
