Claiming Compensation for Lung Cancer

Cancer is one of the most debilitating diseases that anyone can suffer and to struggle through this disease knowing that it was caused by a third party can be an incredibly frustrating task. When it comes to treating any type of cancer it is usually a long, drawn out and expensive process, which can cost a great deal of money. The treatment can also take over a year, which can make it very difficult to lock down a job in this time and therefore also costs you a loss of income.

If you suffer or have suffered from lung cancer through no fault of your own then you may be eligible to claim compensation to cover the expensive medical costs and any loss of income that you have incurred. 

What is Lung Cancer?

Lung cancer is a very aggressive form of cancer which starts in the lung area. It is caused by the degeneration of cells which turn into “bad cells” and begin to spread themselves throughout the body. As the disease continues to spread it slowly destroys many cells within the body causing the body to shut down part by part. Eventually if left untreated, the cancer can spread throughout the body and lead to death. 
 
Lung cancer is most commonly found in smokers as the tar and nicotine contained in cigarettes is a contributor to the degradation of the healthy cells. Lung cancer can also be caused by dangerous chemicals and materials being inhaled from a third party source. 

What can I claim for?

If you have contracted lung cancer through no fault of your own then you could be eligible to claim compensation. Situations where you may be able to claim include:
Inhaling second hand smoke – If you inhale smoke from a third party you could be eligible to claim against them if you contract lung cancer as a result
  • Asbestos related injuries – The inhalation of harmful asbestos fibres can lead to the development of lung cancer
  • Unhealthy working environment – If your workplace provides an unhealthy environment where you may be susceptible to lung cancer you may be able to claim against them
  • Air pollution – Harmful pollutants in the air can get into the fibres of the lung and cause damage
