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.

The Finz firm has obtained millions of dollars in verdicts and settlements for the victims of medical negligence, toxic exposure and other personal injuries. The firm's New York lung cancer lawyers represent clients nationwide, so contact the firm today.

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.

Contact Asbestos Exposure and Failure to Diagnose Attorneys

If you have been diagnosed with lung cancer as a result of asbestos exposure or any other dangerous substance, or if your doctor failed to diagnose your condition promptly, call Finz & Finz, P.C., toll free at (855) TOP-FIRM today. You can also fill out the Free Case Evaluation form online.

Greater Awareness Necessary for Lung Cancer Diagnosis in Women

October 26, 2016 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

As we head into Lung Cancer Awareness Month this November, a recent study has confirmed what many people may not realize—lung cancer is the largest cancer killer in women. And while over 106,000 women will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year and 72,000 will lose their battle with the disease, a disturbing 98 percent of women do not even think about lung cancer when considering risks to their health and well-being. Neglecting the possibility of being diagnosed with lung cancer may also contribute to its high mortality rate.

We all know about breathalyzers.

Lung Cancer: Blaming the Victim

November 03, 2014 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

It’s easy to blame the victim.  It has become accepted by a large percentage of Americans that those who suffer from lung cancer somehow brought it on themselves, as if a bad habit should be punished with a terrible disease.  There seems to be something wrong with the idea that smoking cigarettes deserves the death penalty.  But even if you accept that idea, there are still thousands of cases of lung cancer suffered by people with no history of those bad habits.

Lung Cancer: How It Has Always Been Done

September 22, 2014 | Finz & Finz, P.C.

It’s been the "go-to" form of screening for decades, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention no longer recommends it.  A new study out of Norway confirms that at best, the x-ray catches only 20 percent of lung cancer cases, and runs the risk of causing other diseases due to exposure to x-rays.  Yet, despite the availability of CT scans, many doctors have continued to use the x-Ray as their go-to screening for lung cancer.
