MEMPHIS , TENNESSEE , USA, May 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Tennessee US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging a Navy Veteran or person with recently diagnosed lung cancer in Tennessee or their immediate family to please call Attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303 if they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work in the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and it does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes. The typical person the Advocate is trying to identify is over 60 years old.
According to the Advocate, "If the person we have just highlighted sounds like your husband or dad, his lung cancer diagnosis is recent and his exposure to asbestos took place prior to 1982-please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303. Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste is one of the nation's most skilled asbestos exposure attorneys-and he will know exactly how to assist a person like who we have described with their compensation. Sadly—most people like who we have described never get compensated-because they are not aware the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too." www.karstvonoiste.com/
