The Sea King Helicopters were used by the Royal Air Force between 1969 and 2018. Some people who worked on these at the time have developed cancer and this has been linked to the exposure to the fuel and fumes from the helicopters.

As an employer the Ministry of Defence (MoD) has a duty to protect those personnel who worked on these aircraft from any risk of injury or disease and they are obliged to take reasonable steps to avoid this. We have seen that in some cases that they have failed in this duty of care and this has resulted in a diagnosis of cancer. These people have, as a result, the right to claim compensation.
The symptoms can take a number of years to appear. If you have worked on these aircraft we would, as a precaution, suggest that you contact your GP to get a blood test and explain the circumstances. The earlier that this is identified the better.
If you have been affected by this and received a cancer diagnosis and would like to speak to one of the team for a Free case assessment get in touch and we can talk you through the process in plain English.
