What is Asbestos Induced Lung Cancer?
It has been known for more than forty years that asbestos can cause lung cancer. Smokers who have been exposed to asbestos are far more at risk of developing asbestos induced lung cancer than non-smokers. It usually takes 20 years or more from first exposure to develop. There is still debate as to whether asbestosis is necessary for an asbestos related lung cancer to develop, but most doctors consider that a person cannot develop asbestos induced lung cancer without first being diagnosed with asbestosis.
Compensation for Asbestos-induced Lung Cancer
For the disease itself, awards vary between £50,000 and £69,500. In addition, the Claimant may also be able to claim for loss of past and future earnings, the cost of specialist care, care provided by the Claimant’s family and any special needs such as the cost of a stairlift or special shower or bed.
