Automakers' Tactics Try to Prevent Victims from Getting Their Due

Automakers' defective vehicles have recently injured thousands of people, yet they are making it increasingly difficult for victims to win settlements in legitimate cases.

Cell phone radiation linked to cancer

In spite of repeated denials from the telecommunications industry over the past 20 years, it is now known that the microwave radiation emitted from cell phones is linked to cancer in those who have used phones over time. While it may take years for cancer to actually show up, it is clear that there is an increased risk of cancer for those who have used cell phones on a heavy basis and for a long period of time. Precaution should be used so that you are not exposed to higher levels of microwave radiation. We recommend that you use hands free devices or the speaker function whenever possible. It is important to keep the phone away from your body as much as possible. Since younger children are at an increased risk, make sure they do not sleep with the phone in their bed or nearby. Medical science is just now catching up to this new threat. It takes years for cancer to develop but the studies are already showing a definitive link. If you or someone you know develops a cancer in the same area where the cell phone is normally held, you should contact an attorney to evaluate your claim. We can investigate and evaluate claims like this at no cost or obligation to you.
