NORFOLK , VIRGINIA , USA, October 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Virginia US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is appealing to the wife or family of a Navy Veteran with lung cancer anywhere in Virginia to call the amazing lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO at 800-714-0303 if their loved one had significant exposure to asbestos in the navy prior to 1982. Financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000. For a career Navy Veteran, the compensation might be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars-depending on how, where and when the Veteran was exposed to asbestos on a navy ship, submarine or at a shipyard. It does not matter if the Veteran smoked cigarettes. The typical person the Advocate is trying to identify is over 60 years old.
According to the Advocate, "Most Navy Veterans who now have lung cancer-and who decades ago had heavy asbestos exposure in the navy never get compensated-even though most should. The compensation we mention does not involve suing the navy. If your husband, dad or loved one served in the navy in the 1960s or 1970s—- he now has lung cancer, and he had asbestos exposure in the service please call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste-KVO at 800-714-0303. We think you will be glad you did." www.karstvonoiste.com/
