ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO, USA, July 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The New Mexico US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is urging the family and friends of a Navy Veteran in New Mexico who has lung cancer and who had significant exposure to asbestos in the service to please call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Financial compensation for a person like this could exceed $100,000. If the Navy Veteran spent his career in the navy the compensation could be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars if he has lung cancer as well as heavy exposure to asbestos. The typical person the Advocate is reaching out to is over 60 years old and their asbestos exposure took place prior to 1982.
The Advocate says, "Most Navy Veterans or people who had significant exposure to asbestos and developed lung cancer are not aware the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. If your loved one died of lung cancer and he was exposed to asbestos in the navy within the last year, please call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 anytime to discuss possible significant compensation. The asbestos exposure had to have taken place before 1982." www.karstvonoiste.com/

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in New Mexico include US Navy Veterans, civilian workers at one of New Mexico’s air force bases, workers at one of New Mexico’s dozen plus power plants, oil refinery workers, civilian employees of the Defense Department, manufacturing, or industrial workers, public utility workers, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, miners, or construction workers. Typically, the exposure to asbestos occurred in the 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. 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
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.
