Smokers who have been diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease are absolutely still eligible for compensation. These diseases are the result of asbestos fibers making their way into your body and embedding into your soft tissue. While smoking tobacco may increase your chances of developing diseases that are related to asbestos exposure, this does not affect your right to financial compensation.
Some medical studies have found that smokers exposed to asbestos increase the risk of developing mesothelioma by 50% to 80%. If you are a smoker that worked around asbestos, we urge you to get tested for all illnesses that are related to asbestos exposure. This includes asbestosis, lung disease, colon cancer, throat cancer, and stomach cancer.
