Asbestos cancer lawsuit
If you have been exposed to asbestos fibres through your job, the environment or at home via a family member, and you have recently been diagnosed with lung cancer, you may be able to claim personal injury compensation by instigating an asbestos cancer lawsuit.
How much compensation can I receive from an asbestos cancer lawsuit?
While money will not make up for the pain and suffering caused by your cancer diagnosis, it will make it easier for you to pay for your care needs and provide financial security for your loved ones. The amount of compensation awarded to you will vary, but is likely to cover your lost earnings and any expenses associated with your cancer, such as prescription charges and the cost of travelling to and from hospital appointments.
What are the time limits for making an asbestos cancer compensation claim?
The time limit for making a personal injury compensation claim for asbestos cancer is three years. However, due to the lengthy time period over which asbestos cancer may develop, the period starts from the date on which you had reason to believe you had developed cancer. Typically, this will be the date on which a cancer specialist (oncologist) confirmed your diagnosis.
Why do I require an expert asbestos cancer compensation claim solicitor?
