BANGOR , MAINE, USA, February 9, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Maine US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “We have endorsed attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to assist a Navy Veteran who had significant exposure to asbestos decades ago and who now has lung cancer in Maine-or anywhere in the nation. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. It does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes or not. What does matter is that people like this get compensated as Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste is always happy to discuss at 800-714-0303. The typical Navy Veteran we are trying to help is over 60 years old.
“Most people have heard about financial compensation for people with mesothelioma. For whatever reason-most people who have lung cancer and who had constant exposure to asbestos in the navy or at work decades ago do not know they might also qualify for compensation from the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds too. If the person we have described is your husband or dad and he has recently been diagnosed with lung cancer, please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303. We think you will be glad you did.” www.karstvonoiste.com/
The Maine US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate’s free services are available to people with asbestos exposure lung cancer or mesothelioma in Portland, Lewiston, Bangor or anywhere in or anywhere in Maine. https://Maine.USNavyLungCancer.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. 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. Frequently compensation for people like this might exceed $100,000.” https://USNavyLungCancer.Com
