The Advocate says, “Most Navy Veterans who had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard and now recently have been diagnosed with lung cancer never get compensated even though the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for people exactly like this. Our number one priority is doing everything possible to alert Navy Veterans who have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer to get compensated if while in the navy prior to 1982 they had heavy exposure to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard.
“If the person we have just described sounds like your husband or dad anywhere in the nation and he served in the navy in the 1950s, 1960s or 1970s please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste anytime at 800-714-0303. As mentioned, the financial compensation for a person like this might be significant. Financial compensation for a Navy Veteran who has developed lung cancer is based on how, where and when he was exposed to asbestos in the navy as attorney Erik Karst is always happy to discuss.” www.karstvonoiste.com/

*While the Veteran was assigned to a shipyard for a retrofit, overhaul, or maintenance and had to stay on board a ship or submarine to assist the shipyard workers with the repairs.
*While assigned to a navy ship’s engine room as a boiler technician, as a member of a maintenance crew, or as an electrician, plumber, welder, pipefitter or shipfitter.
*Significant asbestos exposure may have taken place while preparing their ship or submarine for deployment and/or cleaning up their ship post deployment.
*While assigned to a repair crew while their ship or submarine was at sea.
