Hyattsville, MD asked in Personal Injury and Products Liability for Maryland

Q: Looking for legal advice for case against Apple's iPhone and radiation levels which caused me to have cancer.

Yes, the iphone 11 pro max and up have high radiation levels that does harm you I am a witness to this and the crazy part of it is that it started exactly seven months before they called for the Covid plandemic. I suddenly out of nowhere would listen to my music with their earplugs and my face would get numb. I stopped listening then suddenly my left nostril started to leak mucus to the point that I would have to wake up and blow because it felt like I was drowning. I went to my doctor various times and had two chest x-rays that were normal. I was given antibiotics because they thought it was my sinuses. After about five months of this happening and me telling my doctor that I think it was my phone. I thought my phone had a short so I took it back to Sprint it was at the time, and they tested it but said let us upgrade for you just in case and I figure maybe that would help. However, it did not help by the six month the doctor ordered a head scan for me which came back normal except it

A: Your lay opinion as to both the “radiation” and its relationship to your vaguely described symptoms that are the same symptoms caused by countless possible other reasons (virus, allergy, bacterial infections, nerve related issues, etc.), and the total lack of any medical evidence to support it, is insufficient to base a claim upon. You would need hard scientific evidence by experts in the field, both to prove the level and nature of the radiation, and then separate medical experts directly tying exposure to the radiation to your symptoms. Finally, unless your symptoms are permanent, or long term, or have caused you to incur large medical expenses, your claim may not be worth much, and would not cover the expert witness fees it would take to prove your case. Ever since cell phones were invented and became widely used in the 1990’s, there have been claims such as yours, but there has never been adequate scientific or medical evidence to support a claim. You will find it extremely difficult to find a lawyer interested in your case. At present it sounds like mere speculation on your part. That’s not admissible evidence in a court of law.
