Lung Disease Compensation
A large number of individuals may have been exposed to harmful substances during their employment. As a result of exposure to these substances they may now suffer from lung disease and therefore be entitled to lung disease compensation. Examples of substances which may be harmful include asbestos, different forms of dust and welding fumes. There are a number of occupations in which lung disease is at a greater risk of being developed, and these include miners, asbestos workers, those working in laboratories, those involved in forestry and construction workers.
If you have recently been diagnosed with lung disease you should determine whether or not it is possible to establish how or where you developed the disease. If you feel that it is possible that the lung disease has arisen as a result of a current or previous employment you should contact our solicitors** in Birmingham as you may well be entitled to lung disease compensation.
How much Compensation for a Lung Disease Claim?
The amount of compensation will vary depending on a number of determining factors, including but not limited to the severity of the disease, the cause of the disease and the detriment (financial or otherwise) that has been suffered as a result of the lung disease.
Our lawyers Birmingham will ask you some questions in order to determine whether or not you have a claim and give you an indication of the amount of compensation that has been awarded in similar cases.
A collection of the most common lung diseases arising out of a breach of health and safety regulations in the work place is known as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (copd). chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (copd) includes bronchitis and emphysema in varying forms, and if you suffer from copd you may well be entitled to lung disease compensation. The symptoms of copd will depend on the specific circumstances, severity and type of condition, but commonly include coughing, wheezing, being short of breath, anxiety and in some cases depression.
There may also be steps that are required after diagnosis to ensure that the disease is properly controlled and does not worsen, and this is another reason to contact our Birmingham Personal Injury Claims solicitors** as soon as is reasonably possible in order to asses you case for lung disease compensation.
