Claiming for Asbestos Related Lung Cancer
People who have experienced heavy and prolonged exposure to asbestos are at risk of developing asbestos related lung cancer, especially if they have smoked. Smoking, together with exposure to asbestos, significantly increases the risk of developing lung cancer.
Asbestos related lung cancer should not be confused with mesothelioma, which can develop after very small amounts of exposure to asbestos and only affects the lining of the lung.
When considering the strength of any asbestos related lung cancer claims it is important to consider the type and amount of asbestos exposure with each employer.
Asbestos related claims are complex, particularly if a number of parties have been responsible for your asbestos exposure and are no longer trading. This is because every party who is responsible for exposing you to asbestos must pay a portion of your damages. That is why it is essential to get specialist help to trace all responsible parties, to ensure you get the full compensation you are entitled to.
