Do you qualify for financial compensation if you have lung cancer?
Patients who were exposed to asbestos at any time in their lives and were diagnosed with lung cancer may qualify to receive a significant financial settlement.
There may be no need to file a lawsuit or go to court to receive a settlement because companies who are liable for asbestos claims have already put aside over $30 billion into “asbestos trusts” to compensate those diagnosed with asbestos lung cancer and mesothelioma. Even if the company is bankrupt, money may still be available to asbestos victims and their families.
Receiving compensation from the asbestos trusts may be easier and quicker with the help of an experienced asbestos attorney, who the Relion Group can help you find.
Smoking does not prevent an asbestos victim from filing a claim. If you are a current or former smokier, you may still be entitled to file an asbestos lung cancer claim.
Family members of asbestos victims may also qualify for compensation. Even if a loved one has already passed away due to asbestos lung cancer or mesothelioma, a spouse or a child may still be entitled to benefits from the asbestos trust funds.
