Lung cancer, asbestos related or otherwise, develops through the surrounding tissue, invading and often obstructing air passages.
The time between exposure to asbestos and the occurrence of lung cancer is often 20 to 30 years or more but varies in every individual case. It should be noted that there is a multiplying effect between smoking and asbestos exposure, which creates an extreme susceptibility to lung cancer.
Compensation claims for asbestos lung cancer
If you have been recently diagnosed with lung cancer and you were exposed to asbestos during the course of your career then it is vital you instruct a solicitor experienced in this complex area of law.
Compensation claims for asbestos related lung cancer are not straightforward. Claims for lung cancer are often difficult because it is necessary to prove a link between the diagnosis and exposure to large levels of airborne asbestos dust. There are also other factors to consider, the main point being whether the client was a smoker, which can also cause lung cancer.
If other asbestos related conditions are present alongside lung cancer it may be accepted that the lung cancer was caused by exposure to asbestos. Where other asbestos related conditions are not present, it is necessary to prove significant exposure to airborne asbestos during the course of employment.
