Lung cancer occurs where cancerous cells and tumors form in the lungs. One known accelerating cause of some lung cancers is a significant exposure to asbestos dust and fibre. These fibres, when inhaled, become lodged in the lung and can cause inflammation, cellular damage and the formation of tumors and if sufficient exposure to asbestos dust and fibre occurs damages can be claimed, even if the main cause of the cancer is said to be from smoking.
The most common symptoms of lung cancer include chest pain, coughing up blood, shortness of breath, wheezing, headaches, weight loss, bone pain and fatigue.
At Gerard Malouf & Partners we are able to arrange expert assessment by oncologists, respiratory physicians and/or epidemiologists to advise whether the lung cancer suffered falls into this category, so that damages can be claimed. We have developed significant expertise in being able to assess the likelihood of success, in this regard, and with our no win no fee policy applying seeking our guidance as to whether damages can be claimed will give you and your family some peace of mind in a very difficult period of your life.
Even though and there is no time limitation within which to bring a claim for damages arising from this disease, as any damages claim MUST be commenced whilst the client is alive the earlier this assessment can be made the better.
