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.

Compensation figures for lung disease

  • If breathing difficulties are present and you require the use of inhaler on a regular basis then your compensation will be approximately £24,950 going up to £43,710. An uncertain prognosis and an established detriment to social life will also be taken into account
  • If you have lung cancer and your pain and suffering seriously affect your quality of life and the ability to function then compensation of £55,830 to £77,580 is typical
  • The highest compensation settlements of £80,250 to £108,370 are received by younger people with severe disabilities and the likelihood the condition is going to worsen and result in an early death
  • Lung diseases such as pneumoconiosis, emphysema or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disorder where there is a significant impairment of lung function and breathing will result in around £43,670 to £55,830 worth of compensation. Poor ability to sleep sufficiently, frequent coughing and the lack of ability to work will also be considered
  • If you have a lung problem classified as bronchitis or a related chest problem then compensation will range from £1,760 up to £4,240
  • If you are still able to work but have slight breathlessness and the chance of a good recovery within a few years, you might expect to receive £8,480 up to £16,580 in compensation
  • Minor symptoms relating to bronchitis and wheezing which have not impacted on your job or quality of life but may have meant some anxiety will mean you could receive £16,580 to £24,950 in your claim
