WHEELING, WEST VIRGINIA, USA, September 24, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The West Virginia US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran with recently diagnosed lung cancer in West Virginia and while serving in the navy he had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos prior to 1982 please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss what might turn out to be significant financial compensation. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed a hundred thousand dollars and the claim does not involve suing the navy.
“When it comes to financial compensation for a person like this what does matter is they recall the specifics of how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a navy shipyard where their ship or submarine was being repaired. Most people like this never get compensated-even though they should.
“The Navy Veteran with lung cancer we are trying to identify is over 60 years old and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes. What does matter is a person like this talks to a lawyer who knows what they are talking about when it comes to compensation for a person like this. For direct access to attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste please call 800-714-0303.” www.karstvonoiste.com/
