How does a lung related diagnosis help my asbestos trust fund claim?

Struggling with lung cancer or mesothelioma, the only lung diseases that make you eligible to file a claim, will nearly always make you entitled to financial compensation from asbestos trust funds.

Asbestos exposure is responsible primarily for lung disease

Compensation for lung related diagnoses

Because the main route of exposure to asbestos is inhalation, it should come as no surprise that lung disease is the most common among victims of asbestos exposure.

Approximately 4% of lung cancer cases are the result of asbestos exposure and the only known cause of mesothelioma, a very aggressive cancer that develops on the outer lining of the lungs, is asbestos exposure.

If you file an asbestos claim with the help of a specialized attorney, you have more chances of obtaining financial compensation than if you seek money for cancer that does not occur in your lungs.

Still, filing a claim for asbestos exposure is a tedious, challenging, and demanding process. This is where the assistance of a specialized lawyer comes into play. Along with their legal team, they will be able to gather sufficient proof to support the causal relation between your lung disease and asbestos exposure, which is bound to guarantee a favorable outcome for your case. Only by working with a lawyer whose main area of practice is toxic exposure will you be able to recover the compensation you are entitled to from asbestos trust funds, as the legal process is very complex and requires specialized knowledge.
