If you have decided to make a compensation claim following a personal injury then you may be wondering where to…
Lung disease compensation claims can take a variety of forms. Industrial and environmental exposure to harmful substances can lead to respiratory problems, including lung cancer, bronchitis, emphysema and minor respiratory disorders.
While it may be impossible to demonstrate that one specific factor or environment caused a person’s lung disease, personal injury compensation claims are decided on the balance of probabilities. This means if you think that your lung disease is someone else’s fault, you should speak to solicitors about claiming for compensation. You should make your claim within three years of the date the personal injury was noticed on, as you may be unable to claim for compensation after this time.
Lung diseases can be debilitating and can significantly damage a person’s quality of life. People can find they are no longer able to stay in their careers due to lung diseases, and they can shorten a victim’s life expectancy significantly and lead to many unexpected complications. This means if you have suffered a lung disease due to someone else’s negligence and want to make a personal injury compensation claim, the figures on this page may not accurately reflect the value of your claim. You will have to consider other factors, such as lost wages, the damage your disease has made to your quality of life, your long-term prognosis and any other losses you have faced.
