Jim Adler | The Tough, Smart Lawyer
cancer lawsuit

When you are first diagnosed with cancer, you may not immediately feel that a lawsuit is the right path to take. But if your condition was caused by someone’s negligence or your treatment is doing more harm than good, then you could have a personal injury case on your hands that an experienced lawyer can help you with.

Along with understanding your treatment needs, you also need to understand why a cancer lawsuit can be appropriate in some cases. Professional diagnosis, monitoring, and cancer treatment procedures are expensive, and your insurance may not cover everything. That is why your bladder cancer diagnosis caused by another’s negligence may require a bladder cancer lawsuit to make sure that you get the financial help you need to fight this awful disease.

Understanding Cancer Through the Numbers

Filing a bladder cancer lawsuit is not as uncommon as you think, as many patients do find that they have a legitimate claim against a person or entity that caused their condition. According to the National Cancer Institute, some of the most common types of cancer are thyroid cancer, pancreatic cancer, and bladder cancer. Based on an average of cases diagnosed between 2008 and 2012, the annual rate of new cases of cancer is approximately 455 for every 100,000 people. In 2014, the number of patients who lived beyond their expected life span was 14.5 million people, and that number is expected to rise. The numbers show tremendous progress, but cancer is still a dangerous condition that you should take very seriously.

What Causes Cancer?

Before you decide to file a pancreatic cancer lawsuit, you should understand the situations that can cause cancer. The Mayo Clinic indicates that while the causes of cancer are not all known, exposure to toxic substances, certain chemicals, or radiation can be behind this devastating illness. For instance, contractors who have worked on buildings that contained asbestos are more likely to get cancer. Certain medications can also raise the likelihood of a cancer diagnosis. When it comes to the types of negligence that could cause cancer, a good pancreatic cancer attorney can either give you straight answers or find someone who can.

Advances in Cancer Treatment

An area where you may want to get a legal professional involved in your cancer situation is during treatment. According to the American Cancer Society, the type of treatment you get depends on the type of cancer you have and the stage it is at. For example, there have been significant advances in treating late-stage thyroid cancer that could significantly improve your condition. But if those new methods are not explored, then you could have a thyroid cancer lawsuit on your hands.

I am a Patrol Deputy for the Sheriff Office and while working one night, a drunk driver crossed the center stripe on the highway and struck my patrol vehicle head on with his pick up truck. Needless to say we (the drunk driver and I) were both lucky to survive, as the accident occurred at highway speeds. Following my release from the hospital, I knew that I would need to have someone represent me. My employer was happy to represent me in regards to prosecuting the driver for criminal charges but, can do little in respect to the recovery of financial losses for medical bills, pain and discomfort, time lost from work etc... This is how my relationship with Jim Adler and Associates began. Yep, you probably guessed correctly when you think of what made me choose the "Texas Hammer" to represent me. Those half obnoxious, half way entertaining commercials and radio announcements most Texans have been seeing and hearing on the TV and radio for years instantly came to mind. Yes, I wanted to "hammer" this S.O.B. for trying to kill me but, more importantly I was worried about the costs associated with the life long injuries I had sustained as a result of this drunk driver's negligent behavior. I contacted Jim Adler and Associates and so began our relationship. I was immediately surprised by the prompt attention and the expression of genuine concern for my well being that I received from the employees of Jim Adler's office. Now as you can imagine, lawyers are not a breed that is held in very high regard by people in my profession but, my experiences with Jim Adler's office and his employees have forced me to amend my way of thinking, at least on the civil side of the house anyway. I have to chuckle when I say that because my experience as a client of Jim Adler's firm has been exceptionally pleasant. So before I venture down one of the stereotypical and infinite number of rabbit holes associated with the relationship between members of law enforcement and lawyers; I will do my best to stay focused on my experience with Jim Adler & Associates. Upon being informed that my case had been accepted by Jim Adler's office; I was contacted by Iris Sanchez who informed me that she was to be my case manager and any questions, comments and concerns could be directed to her. I was pleasantly surprised to receive regular calls from Iris assisting with my medical appointments and future follow up appointments. Iris had informed me that Jim Adler's son, Bill Adler would be handling my case and I was even more surprised to receive several calls from Bill to discuss my case. Now you might be thinking "what's the big deal" with the person who is representing you contacting you? In reality, you are correct in that it isn't a big deal but, what is noteworthy and what separates Jim Adler's Office from the multitude of other lawyers is the genuine expressions of concern and the desire Bill Adler conveyed to me to do their best to help me. I felt an immediate connection and instantly realized I had made the correct choice in contacting Jim Adler & Associates to handle my case. One thing I think lawyers and police officers can agree on is the proverbial wheels of justice turn very slowly. Months go by and our professional relationship is never neglected. Through the unwavering attention of Iris Sanchez and Bill Adler himself, I never felt "out of the loop" so to speak and always had a clear understanding of where my case was at in regards to the legal process. In conclusion, I know my brief description of my experiences with Bill Adler and, his assistant Iris Sanchez, cannot provide the credit they deserve. Together they have done an outstanding job representing their firm/employer. If you are seeking a great firm to represent your legal interests and, take comfort in establishing a professional relationship that feels more like a friendship than a casual business acquaintance, then I highly suggest Jim Adler & Associates.

I was dropped from a previous law firm regarding my case before I called Jim Adler. They immediately took up my case and worked hard on it - I was always up to date with each step they took and the benefits or consequences of each. In the end, I am highly satisfied with the outcome and would not have it any other way. It took some time but I truly appreciate and want to thank everybody who helped me on this journey and worked tirelessly on it.

I am very happy with Jim Adler & Associates. I did not know anyone who has ever used the Law Firm before. The staff is very friendly and treated me as if I were family. At times it got very stressful being without a job. They helped me when I was confused about the process. Mrs. Theresa Rodriguez stayed in contact with me constantly. Checking on me to see how I was doing and to let me know how things were going on there end. The Attorneys that handled my case know exactly what they are doing to take good care of me. Thank You so much Attorney's Mr.Michael Gomez and Mr.Trey Smith.
