Fighting for Your Rights: Bladder Cancer Law Firm

Did you know bladder cancer is the fifth most common type of cancer diagnosed in the United States? In fact, approximately 60,000 new cases of this disease are diagnosed annually. Additionally, bladder cancer results in more than 12,000 deaths every year. According to statistics, the risk of developing bladder cancer is almost double in men compared to women.  Worse still, individuals who suffer occupational exposures to diesel exhaust for more than 10 years are more than two-times more likely to be diagnosed with bladder cancer compared to unexposed workers.

At Diesel Injury Law, our attorneys will seek compensation if your bladder cancer resulted from your work or even another source.  We consult with top experts, including industrial hygienists, toxicologists, occupational medicine doctors and oncologists.  That expertise coupled with our legal acumen helps make us a top bladder cancer law firm.

The Link Between Diesel and Bladder Cancer

In the 1950s, it was first discovered that diesel exhaust was linked to various occupational cancers, including bladder cancer. This is because diesel exhaust contains several known carcinogens, which include polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, formaldehyde, and benzene. There have been a number of studies of high-risk workers, such as truck drivers, miners, and railroad employees, who have all linked their exposure to diesel to various types of cancer. In 2012, diesel exhaust was finally declared to be carcinogenic to humans by the World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer.  With the help of our experts and all the supporting studies, in many cases Diesel Injury Law can link long-term exposures to diesel exhaust to a bladder cancer diagnosis.

The Long-Term Effects of Bladder Cancer

While bladder cancer can be treated successfully if diagnosed early, there can still be long-lasting effects that make life difficult, painful and result in lost time from work. Our bladder cancer law firm will perform a thorough intake of your case, consult with experts and make our best attempt to link your bladder cancer to your diesel exhaust exposures.

Our team is ready to help you, and we will fight aggressively for your rights.
