Compensation for mesothelioma and lung cancer

Mesothelioma is a cancer that often occurs in the lungs and the abdomen and is most commonly caused by exposure to asbestos.

When inhaled, asbestos fibres can accumulate in the lungs and cause mesothelioma or lung cancer to develop. Both diseases can develop many years after exposure to asbestos, so victims who were exposed decades ago may only now be experiencing the harmful effects.

This is partly because of the latency period for asbestos-related illnesses which can be quite long, generally between 25 and 50 years. When the person discovers that they have mesothelioma or lung cancer which they believe has developed due to being exposed to asbestos, it may well be difficult to identify when they were exposed to it.

If you or a relative has suffered mesothelioma or lung cancer as a result of exposure to asbestos, you may be entitled to compensation.
