Exposure to Dangerous Substances Leading to Lung Cancer

Lung cancer can be caused by exposure to dangerous substances and chemicals in a variety of industries.  Far too often, a worker will be exposed to a dangerous substance in the air he breathes, and no one warned him or told him to wear a breath mask or other respiratory protection.  Much depends on the specific facts and so you are advised to contact an experienced lawyer for legal advice on your situation.
