Smoking is not the only known cause of lung cancer in the United States, nor is it even the most prevalent. A person’s chance of developing lung cancer can also be increased by exposure to asbestos, exposure to radon, or medical malpractice.
If you believe any of the aforementioned conditions contributed to the development of lung cancer in yourself or a loved one, rest assured knowing that you can take legal action. The parties that exposed you to insufficient conditions or otherwise failed to treat you may be liable for your cancer.
Pintas & Mullins Law Firm can discuss your legal options with you at your leisure and determine what compensation to which you may be entitled. To reach out and start discussing your case, you can call (800) 217-6099.
You Can Work With an Idaho Lung Cancer Lawyer
It is possible for a corporation, small business, or hospital to reach out to you with a settlement offer (in an attempt to “fix” your problems quickly). In these cases, you can take such an offer to a lung cancer lawyer in your area and determine whether or not it addresses all of your future concerns. If the settlement appears to be insufficient, said lawyer can negotiate on your behalf.
We know that, after a lung cancer diagnosis, each day is a matter of putting one foot in front of the other. So, we will help you bring together what documents and information you need to establish a case against a liable party (or parties).
Fighting for Compensation in Your Preferred Location
When you work with us, you can rest assured knowing that we operate on a contingency-fee-basis. This means that we will not request payment for services rendered unto you or a loved one unless a court (or another liable party) chooses to award you damages—for the losses related to your condition. This means that you are free to discuss your case with an attending lawyer without having to worry about how the expense may influence your ability to purchase groceries for the month.
In the same vein, should you receive the aforementioned settlement, you still do not have to worry about legal expenses. Your lawyer from Pintas & Mullins Law Firm will ensure that you request enough compensation to cover your bills, your pain and suffering, and their fee. As such, you can avoid spending your savings paying your representation and instead return your attention to your recovery.
We Will Help You Write a Demand Letter
While some parties may choose to take their lung cancer compensation cases straight to court, you do not have to do so. Instead, a lawyer can work with you to establish a demand letter. This type of letter is meant to be delivered to the party you believe to be liable for your losses. In this letter, you can outline what those losses are and what compensation you believe you may be entitled to (in light of their impact on your life). You can then work with your lawyer to negotiate a settlement.
We Will Also Handle Writing Your Complaint
Of course, there are always times when the liable party refuses to acknowledge such a possibility. If you find yourself in one of these situations, you can work with an Idaho lung cancer lawyer to file a complaint with your local court justice. In doing so, you will put the responsibility of communicating with the other party on a judge and affiliated attendees.
The Legal Information Institute (LII) affirms that a complaint is a type of document that allows you to explain what happened in your case to a judge. In these types of documents, you will want to include:
- The identity of the party you wish to hold liable for the losses relating to your lung cancer diagnosis
- The evidence you have to identify that liable party, as well as the duty of care that they violated
- An estimation of how much compensation you may be entitled to, based on your losses
- An exploration of the aforementioned losses to illustrate your requested compensation
Note that your compensation can include economic and non-economic expenses, depending on the details of your case.
You can work with a lawyer to bring all of this information together. You can also outsource some of that work to an investigator if such additional help seems necessary. Then, you can submit your complaint within Idaho Statutes §5-219 and wait for a court to determine whether or not they would like to discuss your case in person.
Discuss Your Case with an Idaho Lung Cancer Lawyer
Whether you or your loved one was diagnosed with lung cancer, hearing such news can turn your world upside down. When you take into account the fact that exposure to asbestos or radon could mean dealing with the consequences of someone else’s behavior it can be hurtful. In the same vein, medical malpractice, or a professional’s failure to recognize the signs of lung cancer early on can make recovery all the more challenging.
Luckily, you and your loved ones can take legal action. Pintas & Mullins Law Firm can walk you through your legal rights and calculate the compensation to which you may be entitled.
