Asbestos-related lung cancer claims

Quite simply put, asbestos-related lung cancer is lung cancer which is caused by asbestos exposure.

If you, or a loved one, has developed lung cancer as a result of asbestos exposure, you could be entitled to make a claim.

Asbestos-related lung cancer is very rare, but caused by heavy exposure to asbestos dust and fibres. When asbestos dust is breathed in, tiny fibres can easily get stuck in the lungs, which causes damage over time.

The symptoms include:

  • Chest infections

  • Breathlessness

  • Coughing up blood

  • Long-term cough and pain when coughing

  • Loss of appetite and weight loss

Asbestos-related lung cancer FAQs

  1. Are there any time limits for bringing an asbestos related lung cancer claim?

    Claimants usually have three years from the date of diagnosis to bring a claim for asbestos-related lung cancer, however our specialists will be able to provide specific advice for your particular situation.

  2. How much compensation am I likely to recover?

    How much compensation you receive for a diagnosis of asbestos related lung cancer will depend on a number of different factors including the severity of symptoms, the impact it has on your life, and your age at the date of diagnosis. Your personal circumstances will be taken into account so each patient will receive an amount dependent on their particular situation.

    Damages can be recovered  for the illness itself, as well as financial losses incurred as a direct result of the illness such as the cost of care (whether that’s provided by friends and/or family or provided on a professional basis), adaptations to the home and any other losses incurred as a direct result of your illness.

  3. What is the statutory bereavement award?

    A statutory bereavement award is provided in the event of an unlawful death, and this currently stands in England at £15,120. In the event you die, your family might be entitled to a statutory bereavement award as well as any compensation that’s awarded in a legal claim. 

  4. Are there any state benefits which I may be entitled to as a result of my mesothelioma diagnosis?

    You may be entitled to state benefits following a diagnosis of mesothelioma. Our experts will be able to provide guidance on entitlement.
