Asbestos Lung Cancer Compensation Claims

Your need...

You have recently been diagnosed with asbestos lung cancer and may need expert legal advice to achieve compensation for you and your loved ones. You may be the family member of someone recently diagnosed and may be looking to help and support them.

How we can help…

Our solicitors have specific expertise in asbestos-related illnesses and can help you build a successful case for compensation. As lung cancer can have a variety of causes other than asbestos exposure, it is not always possible to prove it developed as a result of a history of working with asbestos. We can help you prove whether there is a link between your illness and previous contact with asbestos.

Our asbestos solicitors work alongside medical experts such as consultant physicians and specialist nurses to enable us to build an effective and informed case. You will have a dedicated legal contact who will work with you to reach a timely conclusion.

You may be also eligible to receive financial help if you have been diagnosed with asbestos lung cancer – your solicitor will be able to guide you through this. Even if you do not wish to make a claim, we can help you obtain a lump sum payment from the DWP: this is usually paid within weeks.

Trust us…

Our solicitors have substantial expertise in asbestos compensation claims and works closely with other experts to ensure your case has the best chance of success. Your solicitor will be available to guide you throughout the process of making a claim either at your home, on the telephone or Skype, or by email, either during or outside office hours.

FAQs

  • Mesothelioma develops on the mesothelium, the lining of the cavity that encases the internal organs including the lungs, whereas lung cancer is a tumour within the lung itself. The symptoms and treatment can often be similar.

  • Mesothelioma is caused by asbestos exposure in over 90% of cases, whereas lung cancer can have a variety of causes, not only asbestos exposure.

    Even when someone has a history of working with asbestos it is not always possible to prove that the  lung cancer they developed was caused by asbestos, particularly if they have also smoked and if the history of asbestos exposure is relatively slight.

    If you have been diagnosed with lung cancer and you have asbestosis, pleural plaques or pleural thickening and/or a clear history of repeated asbestos exposure then it can be easier to prove a causative link between the cancer and prior asbestos exposure.
