PORTLAND, OREGON, USA, July 20, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, "We are urging the family of a Navy Veteran anywhere in Oregon who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer-and who had heavy exposure to asbestos on a navy ship or submarine prior to 1982 to please call attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 to discuss possible compensation. A financial compensation package for the person we have just described might exceed one hundred thousand dollars-and it does not matter if he smoked cigarettes as Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste will explain.
"Financial compensation for a person like we have described is based on how, where and when they were exposed to asbestos. In addition to possibly having heavy exposure to asbestos on a navy ship or submarine a Navy Veteran like this might have also had heavy to extreme exposure to asbestos at a navy shipyard-where their ship or submarine was being repaired. If the person we have described sounds like your husband or dad-please give attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste a call at 800-714-0303 to see what might be involved in compensation. The phone call to Erik Karst is no obligation-and it is worth your time." www.karstvonoiste.com/

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Oregon include Veterans of the US Navy, power plant workers, factory workers, truck building workers, maritime workers, pulp and paper mill workers, public utility workers, plumbers, electricians, welders, auto mechanics, machinists, and construction workers. In most instances, the diagnosed person’s exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. www.karstvonoiste.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
States with the highest incidence of lung cancer include Kentucky, West Virginia, Maine, Tennessee, Mississippi, Ohio, Indiana, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Alabama, and Delaware. www.karstvonoiste.com/
