Getting Help You With Your Work-Related Lung Cancer Claim

The practical aspects of dealing with a work-related lung cancer diagnosis can be distressing. Pursuing a personal injury claim through your employer can seem like an even more daunting task.

At First Personal Injury we will help remove worry by handling your claim and will keep you informed through the claims process.

You have a right to pursue compensation if the injury you have suffered from was through no fault of your own. If your employer has failed to protect you from the hazards in the workplace which have caused lung cancer and it can be proven then you could have a compensation case to pursue.

Work-related lung cancer is different from some other work-related diseases as the symptoms of it are very late onset in some cases. This means it can be challenging to prove, but not necessarily impossible.
