Lung cancer claims

We understand the impact that asbestos related lung cancer has on individuals and their families, and we are dedicated to helping individuals and their families secure fair and rightful compensation.

Our solicitors will guide you and your family through the compensation process, to avoid stress and worry. Through our experience and expertise in lung cancer compensation claims, we are able to establish liability for historical asbestos exposure claims and trace previous employers.

If you, or a family member, has developed lung cancer due to asbestos exposure, call us on 0141 352 6215.

What are the symptoms of asbestos related lung cancer?

Symptoms of asbestos-related lung cancer include chest infections, breathlessness, coughing up bloodstained phlegm, pain when coughing or taking deep breaths or a long-standing cough becoming noticeably worse.

What if you had been a smoker?

There are no physical differences between lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure and lung cancer caused by smoking, the most common cause of lung cancer.

A significant number of people who have been exposed to asbestos dust have also been smokers. It has been medically established that a person exposed to asbestos can develop lung cancer, even if they do not suffer from asbestosis (scarring of the lungs caused by exposure to asbestos dust).

However, it is important to note that, when considering compensation claims from people who have both smoked and been exposed to asbestos, a court may consider that smoking was a part-cause of the lung cancer and apply a reduction in compensation to reflect this.

Lung cancer caused by asbestos - levels of exposure

The level of exposure to asbestos dust required to cause lung cancer is similar, or greater, than that required to cause asbestosis.

Making an asbestos related lung cancer claim

We appreciate that beginning an asbestis related lung cancer claim can be daunting. Our solicitors are committed to making the process as simple as possible to avoid stress and worry. We can visit you at home or hospital, whichever would suit you best. You will have one to one contact with your solicitor to provide you with updates about your case.

You will also have access to our no win no fee funding model, Compensate. This enables us to progress the case without any financial worry to you.
