US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate Now Urges a Navy Veteran Who Has Lung Cancer and Decades Ago Was Exposed to Asbestos on an Aircraft Carrier to Call Attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste-Compensation Might Exceed $100,000

WASHINGTON, March 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging a Navy Veteran who has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer or their family members to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if the Veteran had asbestos exposure on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard while their ship-submarine was undergoing repairs-especially if their ship was an aircraft carrier. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy.

As we mentioned-financial compensation for a person like this might be substantial. To get the financial compensation job done for a person like this we have endorsed attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste. Erik Karst is one of the nation’s leading asbestos exposure lawyers and he and his remarkable colleagues at Karst von Oiste have been assisting people like this for decades. If your loved one has lung cancer, he is a Navy Veteran and he had asbestos exposure in the navy-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. We think you will be very glad that you did.”
