Lung cancer from asbestos
Lung cancer is a tumour which usually grows in the cells that line the air passages of one or both lungs.
There is a very strong link between lung cancer and various agents, including smoking and asbestos exposure.
Asbestos can cause all four major types of lung cancer:
Making a claim for compensation
If you have lung cancer and you have been heavily exposed to asbestos, even if you are a smoker, then you may be entitled to compensation. This can help pay for care and support for you in the future.
Our priority is to gather evidence we will need and to make an assessment on whether you have grounds for a claim.
We will come and meet you, at your home, in order to understand the history of how you were exposed to asbestos.
The amount of exposure required for mesothelioma to develop is not known, but medical science has not ruled out that very low levels of exposure to blue, brown or white asbestos can cause the disease.
