NC Asbestos Cancer Deaths From Around the State
North Carolina asbestos attorney Tom Lamb provides these case reports about deaths from around the state caused by an asbestos-related cancer like lung cancer in order to inform NC workers and their families who may have had a similar work history with asbestos exposure and are now confronted with an asbestos cancer years later.
A very important characteristic of asbestos-related cancer is the unexpectedly long latency period (or delay / lag time) between one’s exposure to asbestos dust and the diagnosis of lung cancer, for example. It will take at least 15 years, and usually longer, from the first asbestos exposure before an asbestos-related cancer is diagnosed by a doctor.
Workers and their families may be entitled to legal compensation from an asbestos lawsuit or a North Carolina workers comp claim filed by an NC lawyer because asbestos exposure causes lung cancer, throat cancer, and other asbestos-related cancers.
