Getting Legal Help for Lung Cancer

Lung cancer legal help can ease some of the burdens that come after a diagnosis. Law firms and lawyers across the country can pursue legal compensation on your behalf if you’re eligible.

Our legal partners have secured millions of dollars for lung cancer patients, allowing them to get the financial aid they need to pay for medical treatments and support their families.

Accessing lung cancer legal assistance can help you feel a sense of justice. This is because lung cancer lawyers will file lawsuits against the companies responsible for getting you sick.

For example, if you were exposed to asbestos and have lung cancer, you may qualify to file a lawsuit — even if you smoked cigarettes.

Asbestos can cause lung cancer and also amplify the damage that smoking does to the lungs. Manufacturers of asbestos-containing products knew this material was harmful but hid the risks. With lung cancer legal help, you can hold these manufacturers accountable.

Lung Cancer Lawyers

Lung cancer lawyers have a wealth of knowledge to build the strongest lawsuit possible for you. They’ll serve as your guide through the legal process and handle all aspects of your case — meaning there is no extra stress on you.

Our partner lung cancer attorneys can:
  • Collect records to build your case (medical documents, bills, etc.)
  • File a lawsuit on your behalf
  • Get compensation from companies that caused your illness

Additionally, our legal partners charge no upfront fees and work on a contingency basis. This means they only take a portion of the overall compensation they secure in your case.

Lung Cancer Lawsuits

There are three types of lung cancer lawsuits. Learn about each type below to find out which may be best for your case.

Personal Injury Lawsuits

You may qualify to file a personal injury lawsuit if you were diagnosed with lung cancer.

A personal injury lung cancer lawsuit will determine:

  1. How your cancer was caused by negligent companies (for example, makers of asbestos products)
  2. Why you deserve compensation
  3. How much compensation you need

Most personal injury lung cancer lawsuits award compensation through out-of-court settlements. A settlement is a legal agreement to end the case before a trial. In very rare cases, a lawsuit may need to be heard in court if a settlement isn’t reached.

Our partner attorneys can file a lung cancer lawsuit and pursue a settlement or verdict on your behalf if eligible. This allows you to focus on your health without worrying about legal hassles.

Wrongful Death Lawsuits

You may qualify to file a wrongful death lawsuit if a family member or loved one died of lung cancer.

Wrongful death lawsuits explain how and why specific companies are responsible for your loved one’s diagnosis and death. For example, makers of asbestos-containing products could be to blame if your loved one was exposed to their goods and later died from lung cancer.

Like personal injury lawsuits, most wrongful death lawsuits reach settlements while only a few go to trials in court.

You may qualify for lung cancer legal help and compensation if a loved one passed away. Call (877) 446-5767 to get started.

Class Action Lawsuits

Class action lawsuits are filed when groups of people are harmed in the same way.

Lung cancer class action lawsuits are not typically filed because:

  1. Lawyers can usually secure more compensation through a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
  2. Many factors, including smoking, asbestos exposure, and genetics, can lead to lung cancer. As a result, each case is unique.
  3. If you developed asbestos lung cancer, you could have been exposed in different ways and to multiple products compared to other patients. You could also develop more than one asbestos-related disease.

These factors mean that it is difficult to consolidate multiple cases into one class action. Instead, our partner lung cancer lawyers can file the most appropriate type of lawsuit — whether wrongful death or personal injury — for your case.

Asbestos Trust Funds

Asbestos trust funds are collections of money set aside to help those with asbestos lung cancer or other asbestos-related diseases. Over $30 billion is estimated to be in asbestos trust funds today.

To file an asbestos trust fund claim, you must have been:

  1. Exposed to products listed in the company’s trust
  2. Diagnosed with lung cancer as a result of this exposure

Even if you don’t remember if you were exposed, our partner lung cancer lawyers can determine if your lung cancer is tied back to asbestos exposure and file claims with any trusts that you qualify for.

Further, our legal partners can file lawsuits and trust fund claims at the same time for you.

Lung Cancer Law Firms

Lung cancer attorneys work at law firms throughout the country. These lung cancer law firms dedicate their time to helping patients get the justice and financial compensation they deserve.

To choose the best lung cancer law firm for your case, ask these questions:

  • Does the law firm focus on lung cancer and other asbestos-related diseases?
    Top lung cancer law firms have attorneys who focus exclusively on helping those with asbestos-related diseases like lung cancer. The firms also have databases on where, when, and how asbestos was used. General law firms may not have these resources.
  • Are the lawyers for the law firm professional, friendly, and respectful?
    The attorney-client relationship is very important. You need to be sure that your lawyers take the time to make you feel comfortable, answer your questions, and support you.
  • Are there any upfront fees to work with the law firm?
    The best lung cancer law firms offer a free case evaluation to potential clients and charge no upfront costs, meaning there is no financial risk for you to work with them.
  • Does the firm have a national presence?
    National lung cancer law firms give you all the benefits of local firms and much more. These firms can often handle cases no matter where you live and keep track of how asbestos exposure may have occurred in each state you reside in.

Lung Cancer Group works with top law firms that have helped many other patients get justice and compensation. Connect with our partner law firms and get lung cancer legal help with a free case review.

Statutes of Limitations and Lung Cancer Legal Help

You only have a limited time to get lung cancer legal help after a diagnosis. Laws called statutes of limitations prevent lawsuits from being filed if too much time passes.

You’ll never be able to take legal action if the statute of limitations is exceeded in your case.

Did You Know?

The statutes of limitations vary by state but most are set between 1 and 6 years. You need to make sure your lung cancer lawsuit is filed before the statute expires in your case.

Contact us soon after you’ve been diagnosed so you don’t miss your chance to get compensation. Lawyers can help you understand the statutes of limitations for your case and promptly take legal action on your behalf.

Receiving Lung Cancer Legal Compensation

Patients can receive significant amounts of compensation when they get lung cancer legal help.

Our legal partners have secured millions of dollars in lung cancer compensation for many other clients. This compensation helps cover treatment costs, basic living expenses, and anything else.

Notable lung cancer compensation payouts include:

  • $3 million for a woman from Missouri
  • $2.77 million for a pipefitter from Tennessee
  • $2.18 million for an electrician from Illinois
  • $2 million for a construction worker from California
  • $2 million for a railroad worker from New York
  • $1.95 million for a man from Colorado
  • $1.57 million for a plumber from California
  • $1.36 million for a mechanic from California

Learn more about lung cancer settlements and verdicts below.

Lung Cancer Settlements

Through a settlement, the companies being sued agree to pay the lung cancer patient a lump sum of money to prevent the lawsuit from moving forward to a trial.

Compensation from a lung cancer settlement can pay for:

  • Cancer treatments & other medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Any other bills or costs
Did You Know?

Our legal partners secured $1.6 million for a California plumber and his wife who both developed asbestos-related lung cancer. The plumber’s wife unfortunately passed away from the cancer.

Most lawyers prefer lung cancer settlements as there is no way to guarantee a financial win through a trial verdict.

Legal Verdicts

In the rare event that a lung cancer lawsuit goes to trial, the victim’s legal team and lawyers for the companies being sued will present their arguments to a judge and jury.

The jury or judge will then determine if the lung cancer patient deserves compensation or not by providing a verdict.

Lung cancer verdicts could award more, less, or no compensation at all, making them much more unpredictable than settlements. It’s still possible for lawyers to negotiate a lung cancer settlement before, during, or even after a trial though.
