Cell Phone Radiation Lawsuit Alleges Illinois Man Developed Brain Tumor Following Years of Heavy Cell Phone Use
PRWeb – Sat, Nov 17, 2012
Bernstein Liebhard LLP has filed a cell phone radiation lawsuit on behalf of an Illinois man who developed a brain tumor in his left frontal lobe, allegedly due to years of extensive cell phone use.
An Illinois man and his wife have filed a cell phone radiation lawsuit against several mobile phone manufacturers, after the man was diagnosed with a brain tumor in his left frontal lobe, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. The lawsuit, which was filed on November 6, 2012 in the Superior Court of the District of Columbia, alleges that years of heavy mobile phone use and exposure to cell phone radiation, caused the Plaintiff’s brain tumor.

“As evidence of the harmful side effects of cell phone radiation continues to accumulate, we expect that more consumers will pursue similar claims in the near future,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm which is currently part of a small legal consortium representing individuals in cell phone radiation lawsuits.
Cell Phone Radiation Lawsuit Allegations
The lawsuit alleges the adverse health effects suffered by the Plaintiff are a direct consequence of his exposure to the radiofrequency (RF) radiation emitted by the cell phones he used. The complaint further alleges the Defendants were aware of numerous studies and experiments demonstrating the health hazards of RF radiation that date back to the late 1940s, yet continue to maintain to the public at large that cell phones are absolutely safe. The studies cited by the complaint include the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Interphone study, which found that use of cell phones for a 10 year period can increase the risk of developing brain tumors called glioblastomas by 40% in adults. Following the publication of the Interphone study, the WHO’s International Agency on Research for Cancer classified cell phone radiation as possibly carcinogenic to humans.*
In a landmark ruling announced last month, the Italian Supreme Court ruled cell phone radiation can cause brain cancer, finding a causal link between a man’s heavy cell phone use and a brain tumor he developed.** The judicial finding that cell phones can cause brain cancer is backed by a growing body of research that suggests long-term exposure to cell phone radiation increases the risk for brain tumors, according to Bernstein Liebhard LLP.
Individuals who suffered brain tumors or other cancers that may have been caused by cell phones, including glioma, acoustic neuroma, meningioma, or tumors of the salivary glands, may be eligible to file a cell phone radiation lawsuit seeking compensation for their injuries.
