SEATTLE, WASHINGTON , USA, July 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- According to the Washington US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate, "If you are a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer anywhere in Washington State please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if while in the navy you had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship or submarine. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed one hundred thousand dollars, and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes. The typical person we are trying to get identified is over 60 years old and they would have served in the navy prior to 1982.
"Most everyone has heard about mesothelioma and potentially significant compensation for people with this rare cancer caused by asbestos exposure. Unfortunately, most people who have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer-and who decades ago had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work-never get compensated because they are not aware the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. If the person we have just described is your husband or dad-please call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss what might be substantial compensation. The call to Erik is no obligation." www.karstvonoiste.com/

The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “If your husband, dad, coworker or neighbor has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and you know they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy, at a shipyard or while working at a factory, at power plant, public utility, or as a plumber, electrician welder, mechanic or any kind of skilled trades group in any state please have them call us anytime at 800-714-0303.
