ANCHORAGE , ALASKA, USA, November 13, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Alaska US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is on a mission to see to it that a Navy Veteran or person with asbestos exposure lung cancer in Alaska receives the best possible financial compensation settlement. The problem is most Navy Veterans or people with asbestos exposure lung cancer are not aware their lung cancer could be attributable to asbestos exposure. They also do not realize the asbestos trust funds were set up for them too-just like for people with mesothelioma.

 

If a Navy Veteran or person with lung cancer in Alaska also had heavy exposure to asbestos at work or while serving in the navy, they are urged to call the Advocate anytime at 800-714-0303. https://Alaska.USNavyLungCancer.Com

 

The Advocate says, “We are appealing to a Navy Veteran or person with lung cancer anywhere in Alaska or their family members to call us anytime at 800-714-0303-if the person with lung cancer had easy to document exposure to asbestos. To get the compensation job done for a person like this we have endorsed the remarkable lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste.

 

“The attorneys at the law firm of Karst von Oiste are responsible for over a billion dollars in financial compensation for people with asbestos exposure lung cancer and mesothelioma nationwide-and these amazing lawyers work overtime for their clients-as we would be happy to discuss at 800-714-0303.” www.karstvonoiste.com/

 

The Alaska US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer Advocate is offering to help people with asbestos exposure lung cancer anywhere in the State of Alaska including Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Sitka, Ketchikan, Eagle River, Homer, Palmer or Nome. www.karstvonoiste.com/

 

High-risk work groups for exposure to asbestos in Alaska include US Navy Veterans, workers at Elmendorf Air Force Base, Fort Richardson, Eielson Air Force Base, oil field workers, off shore oil/gas rig workers, oil pipeline workers, marine mechanics, commercial fishermen, pulp and paper mill workers, power plant workers, public utility workers, manufacturing workers, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, auto mechanics, machinists, welders, insulators, or construction workers. In most instances these types of people were exposed to asbestos in the 1950’s, 1960’s, 1970’s, or 1980’s. https://Alaska.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. However, asbestos exposure lung cancer does happen to people in Alaska. www.karstvonoiste.com/

Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center Now Urges President Trump to Stop the VA from Placing Liens on The Compensation Settlements for Navy Veterans with Mesothelioma or Asbestos Exposure Lung Cancer-The Navy Caused the Exposure Not the Sailor

WASHINGTONMarch 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center says, “We have just learned the Veterans Administration is now placing liens for medical treatments on the financial compensation settlements for US Navy Veterans who have mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer-are you kidding us? We are now urging President Trump to issue an Executive order to stop this ridiculous practice.

“To be very clear it was the US Navy that caused the US Navy Veteran to be exposed to asbestos in the first place. Why on earth should the US Navy Veteran have to reimburse the VA for medical treatments that were related to the navy forcing their sailors to be exposed to asbestos on a ship or submarine? The reason we are appealing directly to President Trump is that we think he will do something about this insult to every US Navy Veteran who has served in our nation’s amazing navy.

“At this moment the US Congress appears to be so incredibly self-absorbed with complete nonsense that it might take them a year to fix this incredibly serious problem. It is for this reason we are appealing directly to President Trump.” http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com

The Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center is pointing to an obscure VA rule-U.S. Code that has to do with medical treatments for Veterans that involve a compensation settlement related to personal injury law suits. This rule is found under U.S. Code, Title 38, § 1729.

According to the Lung Cancer Asbestos Victims Center, “The geniuses at the Veterans Administration and or the US Congress probably failed to consider mesothelioma or asbestos exposure lung cancer financial compensation settlements involving US Navy Veterans-when they created this rule. As we mentioned -the US Navy created the environment for a Navy Veteran to be exposed to asbestos-why should the Navy Veteran have to pay one cent for their VA medical treatment-when it was a government department (Department of the Navy) that caused the exposure to asbestos in the first place? The Navy Veteran’s medical care in the event of asbestos exposure lung cancer or mesothelioma should be free of charge-with no strings attached.” http://LungCancerAsbestosVictimsCenter.Com

Their top priority is doing everything possible to see to it that people like this receive the best possible financial compensation. The group honors the amazing men and women who have served in the US Navy and this press release is dedicated to them.
