Tobacco smoking related lung cancer claims

In the United States, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death, responsible for over 154,000 deaths every year. Furthermore, approximately 541,000 people are currently struggling with this unmerciful disease throughout the country. Sadly, lung cancer can be prevented in up to 90% of cases, as it is nearly always the result of tobacco smoking, which is a habit people should strive to quit. Between 10% and 15% of smokers develop lung cancer eventually. Approximately 8 million people are at high risk of developing lung cancer as a consequence of smoking at the moment. If you have already been diagnosed with this disease, the good news is that you can recover financial compensation from the companies whose cigarettes you have been smoking with the assistance of a specialized legal team.

Claim Application

Tobacco smoke contains 69 carcinogenic chemicals, which contribute to the development of lung cancer

While your chances of developing lung cancer as a result of smoking tobacco greatly depend on the number of cigarettes you smoke a day, the potency of the tobacco, and whether you have a predisposition to the disease, the primary cause of lung cancer remains smoking. Shockingly, before the dangers of smoking were known, cigarettes were promoted as being healthy during the last century, as tobacco manufacturers would claim that smoking had the following health benefits for their own financial gain:

  • relieving a sore throat
  • losing weight
  • alleviating coughing
  • reducing throat irritation
  • protecting your voice
  • helping digestion

Today, the dangers of smoking are widely known and lung cancer is the disease that is most often associated with tobacco smoking. Contrary to popular belief, smoking low-tar cigarettes, slim cigarettes, light cigarettes, or filtered cigarettes is not any safer than smoking regular cigarettes, as there is no such thing as a safe cigarette. If you experience symptoms such as loss of appetite, a persistent cough, chest pain, shortness of breath, coughing up blood, or fatigue, we strongly advise you to visit a specialist, as you may have developed lung cancer. Even if you are not a heavy smoker, which usually refers to smoking 25 or more cigarettes a day, you are still at considerable risk of coming to struggle with lung cancer, particularly if it runs in your family. If you have a diagnosis, which you received in the last two years and you began smoking as a minor before 1964 please reach out to our law firm, as we have vast experience in helping people whose health was affected by tobacco smoking and will help you recover the compensation you deserve for your suffering.
