We Are Currently Investigating Certain Cancers Associated With GenX Exposures In North Carolina
The Law Offices of Thomas J. Lamb in Wilmington, North Carolina has many years of experience representing people who have been injured by chemical exposures and toxic substances, or the families of those who have died. At the present time there are various uncertainties surrounding these possible cancer cases due to GenX in drinking water:
- Does exposure to GenX in drinking water cause cancer?
- How much exposure to GenX is needed to cause cancer?
- How long after one is exposed to GenX could a cancer develop?
- What specific types of cancer might GenX cause in humans?
Given the current situation, please understand that we are only investigating cases where a person was diagnosed in or after 2010 with one of the following cancers:
- Kidney cancer
- Testicular cancer
- Pancreatic cancer
In addition, during the period of time starting in 2009 up until the date of their cancer diagnosis, the person must have lived in Southeastern North Carolina (from Fayetteville to the coast) for at least one (1) year.
We encourage you to submit a GenX Cancer Case Review – it is free, confidential, and there is no obligation. Or, if you prefer, call our toll-free number, (800) 426-9535, to speak directly to attorney Tom Lamb about a possible GenX cancer case.
