The Georgia US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging the family of a Navy Veteran with lung cancer in Georgia to call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303-about compensation-if he had navy asbestos exposure.
ATLANTA, GA, July 15, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — The Georgia US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate has endorsed attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to assist a Navy Veteran who has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer to get compensated-if while in the service the Veteran had significant exposure to asbestos. To qualify the Veteran’s exposure to asbestos in the navy must have occurred prior to 1982. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed one hundred thousand dollars-and it does not matter if the Veteran smoked cigarettes. What does matter is the Navy Veteran must be able to recall the specifics of their asbestos exposure as attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss at 800-714-0303. www.karstvonoiste.com/
The Advocate says, “If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran in Georgia or anywhere in the nation and he has just been diagnosed with lung cancer-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if while in the navy he had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos. The asbestos exposure for a person like this probably occurred on a navy ship, submarine or at a navy shipyard. Most Veterans like the one we have described do not realize the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too.
“We also need to mention if your Navy Veteran husband or dad just died of recently diagnosed lung cancer-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. There may still be a possible window for compensation for a person like we have described-but their family will need to know the specifics of their asbestos exposure in the navy.” www.karstvonoiste.com/

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Georgia include US Navy Veterans, workers at Maxwell Air Force Base or Fort Rucker, workers at one of Georgia’s 8 power plants, shipyard workers, oil refinery workers, steel mill workers, pulp and paper mill workers, manufacturing workers, industrial workers, public utility workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, or miners. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s.
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. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.
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. 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.” https://USNavyLungCancer.Com
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. www.karstvonoiste.com/
