New York Lung Cancer Attorneys
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 200,000 Americans are diagnosed every year with lung cancer, and more than 150,000 die from it annually. It is the leading cause of cancer-related deaths in both men and women, representing close to one out of every six cancer fatalities.
Lung cancer can be caused by occupational exposure to dangerous or toxic substances. In addition, lung cancer victims can suffer even more severely or even die when physicians fail to diagnose lung cancer in time.
Types of Lung Cancer Cases
If your lung cancer was caused or exacerbated by another party's negligence, you may be eligible to recover financial compensation for your past and future lost wages, medical bills, pain and suffering and other damages. Examples include:
Occupational exposure: You may have been exposed to asbestos, silica dust, environmental pollutants, ionizing radiation, pesticides, radon gas or other cancer-causing toxic substances at a chemical plant, oil refinery or other job site.
Medical negligence: Even if your cancer was caused by smoking, your doctor has a responsibility to accurately diagnose your condition. Early detection is critical to your health, so both failure to diagnose lung cancer and misdiagnosis of lung cancer are serious problems.
