Asbestos Lung Cancer
Asbestos related lung cancer is a very rare form of lung cancer and medical researchers made a link between asbestos and lung cancer as far back as the 1930’s. However many industrial firms continued to use the material widely in because it was cheap and had excellent fire retardant and insulation properties. Like mesothelioma and the other asbestos related diseases asbestos lung cancer is typically diagnosed at a very late stage of development because it can take many years before the victim shows any symptoms – but only months to spread to other organs of the body.

What if the firm responsible is no longer trading?
Professions most likely to develop this condition include cable layers, carpenters, construction workers, electricians, heating and ventilation engineers to name but a few.The problem with asbestos related diseases is that with only very minimal exposure it can cause problems many years later. Workers described above carry an increased risk of developing asbestos-related lung cancer because of poor safety protection when they were using it. To pursue a claim for compensation therefore requires a firm with the right expertise and ability to gather the necessary evidence.
