Work-Related Lung Cancer Attorneys
Workers with asbestos lung cancer have a right to financial compensation
Do you have lung cancer? Did you work in construction, shipbuilding, factories, warehouses, or a skilled trade like an electrician or welder?
Your lung cancer is likely related to exposure to asbestos at work. It doesn’t matter if the exposure happened decades ago. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never touched a cigarette or are a heavy smoker. People with work-related lung cancer are entitled to collect compensation for their pain, medical expenses, and losses.
If you have lung cancer and know or suspect you worked with asbestos or other toxic substances over your career, contact the Ferrell Law Group for a free case consultation. At no cost to you, we will listen to the details of your situation, answer your questions, and let you know if you have a strong case for compensation. There is no obligation to hire us, either - just good information you can trust.
Who is at risk for work-related lung cancer?
For decades, until the late 1980s, millions of American workers were exposed to asbestos on the job. People who worked with asbestos have high risk for developing lung cancer. Some high-risk jobs include:
- Shipbuilding trades
- Oil drilling and production workers
- Asbestos mining and milling
- Manufacturing of asbestos textiles and other asbestos products
- Insulation work in the construction and building trades
- Demolition workers
- Drywall removers
- Asbestos removal workers
- Automobile workers
- Construction laborers
- Railroad workers
The Ferrell Law Group specializes in finding strong evidence to support work-related lung cancer claims. We analyze work history, interview witnesses, and collect expert testimony, among other things to build a strong case.
Is asbestos the only toxin that causes lung cancer at work?
Asbestos is a major contributor to work-related lung cancer rates in all its forms – actinolite, amosite, anthophyllite, chrysotile, crocidolite, tremolite, etc. But there are other substances that can cause lung cancer at work, including:
- Coal-tar pitch
- Particulate matter
- Radon and other radiation
- Silica dust (in the form of quartz or cristobalite)
- Welding fumes
It’s important to remember that even if you were exposed to multiple cancer-causing chemicals, if you were exposed to asbestos, you can file an asbestos trust fund claim. Put another way, there is no need to prove that asbestos was the only cause of your lung cancer. As long as it was a contributing factor, you have a case.
