As cell phone radiation lawsuits continue to move forward in the U.S., the International Commission for Electromagnetic Safety (ICEMS) has released a position paper voicing support for the recent ruling by the Italian Supreme Court that cell phone radiation can cause brain tumors, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to the November 2012 document, the Italian Supreme Court’s ruling is supported by a consistent body of evidence on the link between mobile phone microwave exposure and head tumor onset. Among other things, the ICEMS asserts that the ruling underlines the discrepancies between the low evidence of risk found by industry-funded studies and the higher evidence of risk found by independent studies.*
“We are in agreement with the position taken by the ICEMS. The ruling by the Italian Supreme Court further supports the claims of our clients who are pursuing cell phone radiation lawsuits in the U.S.,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing individuals allegedly injured as a result of cell phone radiation exposure. Bernstein Liebhard LLP is currently part of a small consortium of law firms leading the litigation against cell phone manufacturers, alleging that manufacturers failed to adequately warn users about the dangers of cell phone radiation.
Cell Phone Radiation Lawsuits
Concerns about cell phone radiation have been increasing for some time. In May 2011, the World Health Organization’s International Agency on Research for Cancer (IARC) classified cell phone radiation as possibly carcinogenic. The IARC acted after the Interphone study found that using cell phones for as little as 30 minutes per day resulted in a 40% increased risk for a type of brain tumor called glioma, when compared to someone who had not used a cell phone. **
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.
