Asbestos Lung Cancer Claims

If you or a family member has been diagnosed with lung cancer as a result of being exposed to asbestos, then you could be entitled to lung cancer compensation.

Inhalation of asbestos dust can increase the risk of developing lung cancer. It can be difficult to prove that a client’s lung cancer is caused by exposure to asbestos because there are a number of other factors which can cause the disease, most commonly smoking.

I am still coming to terms with my illness but the help I have received from Thompsons has been invaluable – I can’t thank them enough.

Our lung cancer client

If a lung cancer patient is already suffering from an asbestos-related disease, it is usually accepted by the legal and medical profession that the cancer was caused by asbestos. In other cases, where asbestosis is not present, it must be proved that the claimant has suffered prolonged or heavy asbestos exposure.
