BANGOR , MAINE , USA, November 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Maine US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is appealing to a Navy Veteran who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer in Maine to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if in the navy in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s the Veteran had significant exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, 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. In addition, to get compensated it does not matter if the Navy Veteran smoked cigarettes.
According to the Advocate, "If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer and before 1982-he had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard please call 800-714-0303 for direct access to attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to discuss what might turn out to be substantial compensation. Compensation for a Navy Veteran like this will be based on how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos in the navy as attorney Erik Karst is always happy to discuss." www.karstvonoiste.com/

Important Note from the US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate: “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. Most people like this never get compensated-even though the asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. We are trying to change this sad fact. Frequently compensation for people like this might exceed $100,000.” https://USNavyLungCancer.Com
