Specialist legal support throughout your asbestos lung cancer claim
According to recent NHS statistics, there were 47,941 new lung cancer cases in 2017. The main cause of lung cancer is smoking. However, when combined with asbestos exposure, smoking can multiply the risk of developing lung cancer. This means that a person who has smoked, and been exposed to asbestos, is at a much higher risk of developing lung cancer than a person who has only been exposed to asbestos, or who has smoked.
Furthermore, the NHS notes that one out of every seven people diagnosed with lung cancer each year have never smoked. It is recognised that asbestos on its own can cause lung cancer.
In order to prove that a person’s lung cancer has been caused by asbestos exposure rather than their smoking, there needs to have been a high level of exposure to asbestos dust and fibres. Our solicitors have a wealth of experience in assessing whether a person’s exposure to asbestos meets the required levels.
Our asbestos lung cancer solicitors can still help you pursue a compensation claim against the relevant insurer even if your employer is no longer in business. In some cases, it is also possible to make a claim if a family member has died as a result of asbestos lung cancer.
