Lung cancer lawyers
According to the director of thoracic surgery and medical director of the Valley Hospital's Blumenthal Cancer Center in Paramus, N.J., lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths and 85 percent of those diagnosed with lung cancer may not be cured. The National Cancer Institute estimated that 116,090 men and 103,350 women would be diagnosed with cancer of the lung and bronchus in 2009. It also estimated that 159,390 men and women would die from these cancers in 2009.
Common causes of lung cancer include smoking and second-hand smoke as well as radon gas. Asbestos is another cause of lung cancer. If you have inhaled dust particles that settled in your lungs, this dangerous substance could be the cause of your lung cancer or a contributing factor. Asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma. In almost all cases, someone diagnosed with mesothelioma has the right to file a mesothelioma lawsuit to recover compensation. Mesothelioma has a long latency period, because it can take up to 50 years to manifest. If a person diagnosed with mesothelioma has died, his wife, children, or estate may be able to file a mesothelioma lawsuit.
