Lung Cancer & Lung Disease Caused By Workplace Exposure

Despite all the advancements in our medical technology, cancer is one of the diseases that researchers and medical professionals are still trying to figure out. Each year, nearly 200,000 Americans are diagnosed with lung cancer, which is recognized as the leading cause of cancer death in the country.

While researchers work to find cures for cancer, we’re committed to helping ensure the families of cancer victims receive the financial support they need.

At the law office of Jay Gervasi, P.A., we represent people in Greensboro and throughout central North Carolina whose loved ones fought or are fighting battles with lung cancer because of their working conditions. We represent power plant workers, construction workers, auto mechanics, paper mill and textile workers, and other employees who worked in closed quarters with materials containing cancer-causing products.

Symptoms Of Lung Cancer

The first signs of lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure often begin in the lining of the tubes where the trachea divides. Lung cancer often takes years to develop, and people may not have any visible symptoms initially. As the cancer progresses, the following symptoms can be indicative of lung cancer:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Persistent cough
  • Coughing up blood
  • Pain in the chest
  • Difficulty swallowing
