No Win, No Fee Lung Cancer Claims
We specialise in helping victims of injury claim the compensation they deserve
Lung Cancer Claims
Some types of lung cancer can be attributed to working in dangerous conditions. Employers have a duty of care to educate employees of these risks, and take reasonable steps to protect them. If you have contracted occupational lung cancer as the result of your current or a previous employer’s negligence, we may be able to help with lung cancer claims.
Living with cancer can be expensive, as can the cost of supporting a family a dependent has passed away after contracting a work-related illness. At The Compensation Experts, we work with fantastic personal injury solicitors who have the knowledge and experience you need to build a successful claim for compensation.
What is a Lung Cancer Claim?
A common cause of occupational lung cancer is due to exposure to asbestos dust. A person does not have to have longer-term exposure to asbestos to develop asbestos-related lung cancer, which may not show for years after they have left that job.
Passive smoking can also cause occupational lung cancer. Although these compensation claims are not as frequent due to legislation introduced in 2007 which banned smoking in public spaces, we still help victims whose symptoms are only now showing, or who work in environments where smoking is still allowed such as prisons and residential homes.
In addition to claiming compensation for lung cancer, the experienced personal injury lawyers we work with can also help if you suffer from occupational emphysema or bronchitis.
The government has a compensation fund for victims of fatal asbestos-induced cancer mesothelioma where no liable employer can be traced. Mesothelioma can take up to 50 years to show symptoms which means that many victims find the responsible company is no longer trading and cannot be found. The average payment under the package is £123,000, and it can be paid to the victim’s beneficiaries if they have passed away.

The solicitors we work with offer our clients a No Win No Fee* agreement to avoid the stress of paying substantial legal fees in advance of making a claim. Our payment will be an agreed percentage of your compensation payment, and if we are not successful in making a claim, you will not have to pay any legal costs at all.
As the claimant, it is your role to prove not only the type and nature of your illness but that it occurred due to your employer’s negligence or failings in making your work environment a safe place. Your lawyer will assist in shows this, obtaining copies of medical reports and other documentation which demonstrates you have been unfairly treated.
