Cell Phone Radiation Lawsuits
Nadrich & Cohen Accident Injury Lawyers is currently and actively representing clients, their loved ones, and their heirs who heavily used early model cell phones and as a result suffered brain cancer and/or brain tumors. Our California personal injury attorneys are making the claim based on scientific evidence that cell phone exposure from early cell phone products with high degrees of radiation may have affected brain activity and thus caused certain types of brain cancers.
Our team has reason to believe that the phone’s radiation transfers caused cancer because the radio frequencies emitting from the cell phone is non-ionizing electromagnetic energy. This type of radiation can affect brain activity and cause certain brain cancers.
Link Between Brain Tumors & Cell Phone Usage
Certain studies indicate that those who spent at least 30 minutes a day on the phone for around 10 years had a 200% increased risk of developing glioma. This is a malignant form of cancer or acoustic neuroma; a tumor of the nerve which runs from the ear to the brain. Cell phone brain injury side effect cases result from individuals who held former generation cell phones up to their ears.
Nadrich & Cohen is part of a group of law firms leading the fight against cell phone manufacturers for causing brain tumors. If you or your loved one was diagnosed with glioma after prolonged cell phone use, you may have a claim for financial recovery. We work on a contingency-fee basis, meaning it will cost you nothing for us to pursue your claim. We are only paid if we first obtain a recovery against the cell phone manufacturers on your behalf.
Our case is based on the failure to warn users of the serious side effects and the concealment by the phone manufacturers that cell phones were safe for consumer use.

The tumors we are handling from heavy cell phone use are as follows:
- Ependymoma or acoustic neuroma
Our lawsuit will include recovery for pain and suffering, all medical costs including lost wages from diagnosis of a glioma-related tumor or acoustic neuroma.
If you, a loved one or a deceased person was diagnosed with one of these brain tumors and regularly used older generation cell phones, we may be able to file a lawsuit seeking a monetary recovery for the injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions on Cell Phone Radiation Claims
What is cell phone radiation?
Cell phones emit radio frequencies (RF) which can prove dangerous, especially in older generation models and when used overtime. Numerous studies have shown the impact of cell phone radiation on brain activity as well as other dangerous effects.
How do I know if I am affected by cell phone radiation exposure?
Cell phone radiation can have life-altering or deadly effects such as brain tumors or cancers, according to scientific studies such as Interphone, the Danish Study, and the Million Women Study. There are some more warning signs of exposure to cell phone radiation. These include:
- Nausea and/or vomiting
- Hair loss
- Weakness and fatigue
What type of cancers/tumors are caused by cell phone radiation?
Because of the distance of the cell phones to the head while a person makes a phone call, the primary concern of older generation and less developed models has been the development of tumors or cancer of the brain. Some of the possible tumors that studies have linked to cell phone use include:
- Malignant brain tumors, such as gliomas as discussed above
- Non-cancerous tumors, such as meningiomas
- Vestibular schwannomas
- Tumors within the salivary glands
How can I be exposed to cellular radiation?
According to the American Cancer Society®, radiation comes from the cell phone’s antenna, which is part of the device that in modern cell phones is not visible. This radiation is a result of the cell phone’s radiofrequency (RF) waves. Radiation waves lose their strength as they leave the body of the phone and gain distance. The closer these older model cell phones were to the user’s head, the greater the risk of exposure. Factors that affect the amount of energy from RF waves include:
- Length of exposure while using the phone
- Distance the person had the phone to their head
- Distance and path to the nearest cell tower
- Model of phone being used
- Age of the individual using the phone
