Lung Cancer

Lung cancer is a very serious disease and, if left untreated, can spread to other parts of the body. It is therefore essential it is diagnosed early - failure to do so can have serious consequences.  

Causes of lung cancer

Lung cancer can be caused by heavy exposure to asbestos. There are many other possible causes of lung cancer though, including smoking. However, the effects of exposure to asbestos and smoking can be multiplicative in causing lung cancer. Therefore, the role asbestos has played in any lung cancer case should be considered.

Exposure to asbestos

If you have been diagnosed with lung cancer and have a history of heavy exposure to asbestos, you can call now to speak to one of our expert lawyers, who will advise you whether you may have a claim.

In such serious instances, it is important people who suffer because of exposure to asbestos are able to get the compensation they are entitled to. This money can be used to help improve their quality of life and to fight this disease.

Asbestosis

The presence of asbestosis can also be suggestive of heavy exposure to asbestos and sometimes indicates that the asbestos may have been a factor in the development of the cancer. The relationship between lung cancer, asbestos and other causative agents such as smoking can be complex. It is therefore advised anyone who wants to know more about such matters gets in touch with expert solicitors who can help them better understand this relationship and whether or not contraction of the disease could have been prevented.
