At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. 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. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. 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.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

Lung Cancer

Thompsons Solicitors Scotland
Thompsons Solicitors Scotland

Lung cancer is a disease in which abnormal cells develop and grow in the lungs. Left unchecked it will interfere with the proper functioning of the lung and spread to other organs in the body. Sadly, it is often fatal.

Lung cancer is caused by a mutation in the cells and this, in turn, can be caused by genetics, aging or outside factors such as smoking.

Sometimes the outside factor that causes the cancer is work-related. In fact, according to the Health & Safety Executive, exposure at work to a known cancer-causing substance accounts for one in twenty cancer deaths in Great Britain. Most of these deaths are caused by exposure to asbestos.

There are many rules in place to protect workers from exposure to carcinogens. Some are covered by the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH), which deals with hazardous substances in general (see our work accident pages for more details).

Other rules deal with particular substances. For example, there are a number of rules requiring employers to protect their employees against exposure to asbestos.

Sadly, sometimes employers do not comply with these rules and workers are negligently exposed to carcinogens. If this happens to you, and you develop lung cancer as a result, you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
