Many individuals who qualify for compensation from an asbestos trust claim do not have cancer. However, it is important to take into consideration that asbestos-related cancers can take several decades to develop after exposure. This means, those who are awarded compensation for asbestosis or shortness of breath, may later develop cancer as a result of their exposure to asbestos.
Which Cancers Are Associated With Asbestos Exposure?
Asbestos exposure has been linked to a variety of cancers including mesothelioma, lung cancer, throat cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, and colon cancer. These cancers can take decades to develop after exposure to asbestos, making it important for those who worked closely with this toxic material to have routine cancer screenings.
If you or someone in your family has developed any of these cancers after working around asbestos, our attorneys can help you. There is more than $30 billion dollars set aside in asbestos trust funds for individuals who develop health problems after being exposed to asbestos. We work with you to help you navigate the process of filing a claim and getting the money you deserve. If someone in your family has passed away from one of these cancers, reach out to our law firm to learn more about your options for filing a claim.
Can I Upgrade My Non-Cancer Claim With the Asbestos Trusts If I Later Get Cancer?
Yes, you can upgrade or file a new claim with trusts if you get cancer. If you qualify, you will be paid the difference between the amount the cancer claim pays and the amount you already received for the non-cancer asbestos trust claim.
