ATLANTA , GEORGIA , USA, November 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Georgia US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is appealing to the wife or adult son-daughter of a Navy Veteran who has lung cancer-to please ask him if he had heavy exposure to asbestos in the navy on a ship-submarine or at a navy shipyard? If the answer is yes-please call-the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303. Compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy. The typical Navy Veteran the lawyers at Karst von Oiste-KVO would like to hear from are over 60 years old and their asbestos exposure in the navy occurred in the 1960s or 1970s. It does not matter if the Navy Veteran smoked cigarettes. www.karstvonoiste.com/
The Advocate says, "If you are a member of the American Legion or VFW in Georgia and you have a Navy Veteran friend who has just been diagnosed with lung cancer–please ask him if he had significant exposure to asbestos? Most of these types of Veterans never get compensated-even though they should. If the answer is yes-please ask-his wife or family members to call the lawyers at Karst von Oiste-KVO at 800-714-0303. They can help." www.karstvonoiste.com/
