An individual’s exposure to high-levels of asbestos can carry grave long-term consequences. There are various conditions associated with contact with the dangerous substance and each are responsible for inhibiting side-effects. However, when this exposure occurred wrongfully then victims may be entitled to compensation and legal redress. Perhaps the most severe potential health condition which can arise a result of asbestos exposure is the life-threatening issue of lung cancer. This results from fibres of the hazardous material being inhaled into the lungs and consequently creating cancer cells in the membrane.
This can also cause coughing, breathlessness and a loss of appetite and is commonly treated through treatments like chemotherapy. These, however, take both a physical and emotional toll on those who suffer and can create lengthy periods of distress. It can often turn into a frustrating and confusing time for those afflicted as it is sometimes hard to connect potential asbestos exposure which may have ceased decades earlier with health problems now. It becomes difficult to cope with the effects of the cancer while trying to decide which steps to take in order to achieve the justice that may be owed.
If you suffer from any disease and you believe it may be attributable to any previous place of work, then you could be entitled to compensatory pay-outs.
Our dedicated team here at Scot Accident Claims possess the necessary expertise and experience to offer a guiding hand in helping you achieve what you may deserve and the peace of mind which currently cannot be found.Employers have long been legally obliged to prevent their staff from being in a position of excessive exposure to asbestos materials and so if problems have arisen later in life as a result, sufferers may be entitled to compensation.
It is important to note, however, that asbestos is not the sole possible cause of lung cancer and it is often the case that it can be the result of years of smoking and other life-choices. If not, then it must be shown that any exposure to asbestos was significant. Our team will remain at your side in helping determine the answers which you may need, every step of the way.
If a diagnosis of lung cancer occurs and it could have been potentially caused as a result of asbestos exposure, then it is important to act quick and decisively. The law places a time limit of three of years to intimate a claim after knowledge of the condition becomes apparent.
Here at Scot Accident Claims, we appreciate how such a life-changing health condition can impose difficult strains on those who suffer and their families who surround. Our team strives to mitigate any such emotional toll while ensuring the process remains as stress-free as possible.
If you suffer from lung cancer and believe it occurred as a result of wrongful asbestos exposure then, please, do not hesitate to contact us and allow us to guide you to the justice you may deserve.
