HOUSTON, TEXAS, USA, February 19, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Texas US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate says, “We have endorsed, and we recommend attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste to make certain a Navy Veteran with lung cancer in Texas gets compensated if they had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy prior to 1982. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. The typical person we are trying to help is over 60 years old and it does not matter if they smoked cigarettes.
“If you have a Navy Veteran friend with lung cancer at a VFW or American Legion anywhere in Texas and you know he had substantial exposure to asbestos in the navy please ask him or his family to call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Most people like this never get compensated because they do not realize the $30 billion dollar asbestos trust funds were set up for them too.” www.karstvonoiste.com/

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Texas include Veterans of the US Navy, a civilian employee at Ford Hood, Fort Bliss or Lakeland Air Force Base, a power plant worker at one of Texas’s dozens of nuclear or conventional power plants, a oil refinery worker at one of Texas’s numerous oil refineries, oil rig workers, chemical plant workers, shipyard workers, factory workers, public utility workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, welders, millwrights, insulators, machinists, and construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. www.karstvonoiste.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
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.
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/
