All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future.

We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

Asbestos Related Lung Cancer

When most people hear the term asbestos-related lung cancer they typically think of mesothelioma. However, while pleural mesothelioma is possibly the most well-known of the diseases caused by exposure to asbestos fibres and dust, it is not the only lung cancer which may result.

While full and accurate figures are hard to come by, the Government estimates that there are in excess of 2,000 deaths each year caused by asbestos-related lung cancer, on top of the 2,500 deaths caused by mesothelioma.

Sometimes it may be difficult to prove that a non-specified type of lung cancer is attributable to asbestos exposure, especially if you are a smoker, but if you have worked in any of the following industries or trades, there's an increased likelihood that you will have come into contact with asbestos-containing materials (ACMs) at some point in your career.
