PITTSBURGH , PENNSYLVANIA , USA, October 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to the Pennsylvania US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate, "We want a Navy Veteran who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer in Pennsylvania or their immediate family to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if while in the navy the Veteran had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos. A compensation claim like this might be worth more than $100,000 and it does not involve a lawsuit against the navy. It also does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes.
"We are advocates for Navy Veterans and people who have recently developed lung cancer and who prior to 1982 also had significant exposure to asbestos and we want people like this to receive the best possible financial compensation. To receive the best possible compensation-it is incredibly important a person like this recall the specifics of how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos in the navy or at work prior to 1982. For more information-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303-if the person we have described sounds like you or your loved one." www.karstvonoiste.com/
Important note from the Advocate: "The typical person we assist is over 60 years old and their asbestos exposure took place in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s." https://Pennsylvania.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.
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
