Each case of radon exposure is different and, even if exposed, you may not develop cancer or radon poisoning. You may be wondering what the actual chances are of getting lung cancer from radon. While this is impossible to predict, ultimately, radon tests not conducted regularly on any building could expose you to dangerous levels of radon and, potentially, lung cancer.
If your doctor has diagnosed you or a loved one with lung cancer, and you believe that radon exposure could be a cause, we can help. Call our team at Pintas & Mullins Law Firm today at (800) 794-0444 for a free case review. We work on a contingency fee basis, so you pay nothing unless we win.
Radon Is Odorless, Colorless, and Potentially Fatal
Radon is the natural byproduct that arises when uranium is broken down in soil, water, or rock. It is an odorless, colorless gas that is virtually impossible to detect without a radon testing kit, and its non-obvious presence is part of what makes radon so dangerous.
Radon is responsible for approximately 21,000 lung cancer deaths each year and is the second leading cause of lung cancer behind the leading cause, smoking. As a result, it is critically important that business owners, landlords, and those responsible for managing premises where people live or work conduct regular radon testing.
Anybody could be the unsuspecting victim of radon poisoning leading to lung cancer, but some groups may be at an elevated risk. These groups include:
- Those who work underground, especially those who harvest uranium
- Those who live in a garden-level apartment
- Those who spend a significant amount of time in basements
- Anyone who spends substantial time in an indoor location where radon testing is not regularly conducted
If your doctor diagnosed you with lung cancer—especially if you are a non-smoker—and you suspect that radon poisoning may be to blame, then you may be entitled to financial compensation.
