How Much Compensation For Lung Disease

Lung disease is quite often a deteriorating and chronic condition; how much compensation for lung disease depends on what the future prognosis is.

Before reading our guide on how much compensation for lung disease remember that the details encompass all conditions relating to the lungs apart from asthma which is detailed separately.

In addition, there are some instances where fees paid can be increased if there is evidence of a psychiatric illness relating to the lung disease. A person’s age will also be considered.
