In a recent case, Williams & Brown LLP won $480,000 on behalf of a U.S. veteran and civilian mailroom clerk who had suffered severe injuries following a mishandled prostatectomy. After being diagnosed with low-risk prostate cancer in 2009, the then-52-year-old veteran underwent robot-assisted surgery to remove the cancer, after which he suffered from additional pain, fever, and abdominal distention. A CT scan was performed, but the radiologist determined the post-operative changes were “nonspecific” and that a follow-up CT scan would be performed to identify rectal injury.
During the month of November, the National Lung Cancer Partnership and other organizations work together to help raise awareness for the alarming prevalence of lung cancer in the U.S.
Every year, one in 14 people will be diagnosed with lung cancer, which is the second most common cancer among men and women. In fact, lung cancer takes more lives each year than breast, colon, and prostate cancer combined.
In order to save lives and prevent the spread of such a deadly epidemic, lung cancer advocacy groups strongly urge smokers to give up smoking tobacco for good. Not only is smoking the leading cause of lung cancer, but it has also been linked to various other cancers throughout the body.
