SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO, USA, February 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New Mexico US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate has endorsed attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to hopefully get significant compensation for a Navy Veteran in New Mexico who decades ago was exposed to asbestos and who now has lung cancer. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. The typical person the Advocate is trying to identify is over 60 years old and their exposure to asbestos occurred on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard prior to 1982. For more information-please call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303. www.karstvonoiste.com/
The Advocate says, “Most Navy Veterans who had heavy exposure to asbestos in the 1950s, 1960s, or 1970s and now have lung cancer never get compensated-even though the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. If the person we have described sounds like you dad or husband and the lung cancer diagnosis is recent-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to learn more about possible compensation. We think you will be glad you did.” 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.

Frequently compensation for people like this might exceed $100,000.” 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. https://www.cdc.gov/cancer/lung/statistics/index.htm.
