BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, USA, August 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Maryland US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “We are appealing to the wife or adult son-daughter of a Navy Veteran who has lung cancer in Maryland to please call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 if their loved one also had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy. The financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000. The financial compensation for a person like this does not involve suing the navy-but rather companies that supplied insulation, machinery or parts on a ship or submarine that contained asbestos.

“Most Navy Veterans who now have lung cancer-and who had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy never get compensated-because they did not know the $30-billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. It does not matter if the person smoked cigarettes. The average age of the person we are trying to identify is 60 years old or older and their asbestos exposure took place prior to 1982. If this sounds like you or your loved one-please call 800-714-0303 to discuss compensation with the lawyers at Karst von Oiste. We think you will be glad you did.” www.karstvonoiste.com/

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
