Some important things to consider when choosing a clinic (From the Mayo Clinic):
Obtain a referral from a trusted physician or another patient with lung cancer. They can be excellent sources for finding the most reliable specialists.
Check on the physician's credentials. The American Medical Association's DoctorFinder for Patients offers detailed information about most physicians' education and experience. Look for physicians with expertise not just in cancer, but also in lung cancer.
Comprehensive Cancer Center meets the highest standards of care, research, and treatment.
Are there clinical trials from which I might benefit? There are many clinical trials ongoing for people with lung cancer. It's a good idea to talk to your doctor about this option.
How far away is the center? Remember, you may need to go there frequently for treatment and follow-up, so you will need reliable transportation or someone to drive you to the center. You may also want to inquire about financial assistance for travel.

Financial compensation for your medical expenses

The bottom line is that the companies that made you sick, knew that you were going to get sick. They intentionally did nothing to protect you. Weitz & Luxenberg believes that this is an awful offense. We can help you hold the companies that caused your lung cancer accountable.
