Being a firefighter is one of the noblest careers you can have. Everything from rescuing a cat out of a tree to running into a burning inferno and saving someone’s life brings a thrill and rush of adrenaline. Firefighters are some of the most courageous people, and they perform their acts selflessly and without hesitation. Every day they risk their lives for strangers, with rarely a “thank you.” But with all of those risks also comes hidden dangers. Getting a minor burn from time to time is part of the job description. Aching bones and muscles are expected. But over time, many firefighters develop lung issues due to all the smoke inhalation they have encountered during their many years on the job. These lung issues could eventually lead to lung failure.

They see the effect it has not just on the victim, but on their loved ones as well. Watching a loved one go through this ordeal can be tough and heartbreaking.

If you have a loved one dealing with lung failure, the first steps you should take are A) seek medical care and B) find an experienced lung failure attorneys in Hawaii to take on your case.
Darryl was part of his fire department for over 30 years. He never missed a day of work. He never called out sick or took a personal day. He was an outstanding firefighter. Over the course of his career, he has saved numerous lives and put out countless fires. But coming toward the end of his career, he started having breathing problems. He was out of breath on a regular basis. It was to the point they relieved him of his duty in the field, so he mainly did desk assignments. That did not bother him, because he acknowledged he was getting up there in years. But the breathing problems became worse. Then came the constant coughing and hacking. Chalking it up to “medical karma” for not ever getting sick a day in his life, he ignored it. But it got so severe, his wife finally convinced him to see a doctor. The doctor sent him to a specialist who informed him he had developed “black lung.” Over the years, the smoke and debris had crept into his lungs, manifesting itself into lung problems. Darryl had to undergo treatment, which was not cheap. But his family sought the assistance of an experienced lung failure attorneys in Hawaii to seek compensation for his treatment. Without it, he would not be able to get the care he needed.
