Who qualifies for lung cancer compensation?
Toxic exposure most often occurs at work. Workers who develop lung cancer may have been exposed to an array of harmful substances like asbestos, diesel exhaust, radon, silica, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, and benzene, among others. Many of these substances are known or suspected carcinogens and can increase the risk of developing lung cancer over time. Some jobs associated with a higher risk of toxic exposure lung cancer include:
- Coal miners
- Foundry workers
- Oilfield workers
- Painters and decorators
- Chemical plant workers
- Construction workers
- Rubber manufacturing workers
- Steel mill workers
- Diesel mechanics
- Farmers and agricultural workers
Occupational toxic exposure is a major factor in lung cancer cases, but it’s not the only way people make contact with hazardous substances. Employees who work with dangerous materials may unknowingly carry toxic fibers and particles home to their families and loved ones. This secondary exposure can also cause lung cancer. Other times exposure happens through toxic or defective products. Environmental exposure can be dangerous, as well.

Many lung cancer victims think it will be a problem if they can’t remember exactly when or how they were exposed to hazardous materials. We want you to know that that’s okay. You don’t need to have the details down. We can get all that information for you when we investigate your case.
The Ferrell Law Group has more than 30 years of experience representing people with lung cancer, including people whose exposure was decades ago. We know what to look for and how to find the evidence necessary to win.
