Lung Disease Claim Payouts Amounts

How Much You Could Claim Calculator

Quite often there is a relationship between workplace injuries and lung disease. It sometimes takes many years for them to finally be discovered, especially those that involve asbestos and other types of toxic materials that are often found in workplaces. Over time, these types of conditions tend to continue to get worse and the level of compensation often reflects the patient’s medical outlook for the future.

The awards below apply no matter what the illness’s source is. Illnesses that relate to asbestos are dealt with here.

£66,100 – £89,100 This level of compensation is usually considered to be appropriate for young people who have a serious disability when there is a probability that their condition with become progressively worse and lead to an early death.

£51,600 – £66,100 The court considered an award at this level when lung cancer is developed by the sufferer which is very detrimental to the person’s quality of life.

£36,100 – £51,600 For diseases like emphysema which cause sleep disturbance and/or coughing or the deterioration of lung function. There could also be a reduction in the level and kind of employment prospects and physical activity that the person can do.

£20,600 – £36,100 If using an inhaler is required due to the illness or injury, difficulty in breathing is involved,and there is a bleak or uncertain medical prognosis, then compensation at this level will be awarded by the court. It is also required to have an effect on the person’s working and social life.

£13,750 – £20,600 This compensation level is awarded when there is wheezing and/or breathlessness that effects the person’s social life. The person will have anxiety about their future as well.

£7,100 – £13,750 If the person suffers from breathlessness but it doesn’t effect their working life and there is a chance of almost total or total recovery within a couple of years then this level of compensation is awarded.

£1,550 – £7,100 This level of compensation is awarded for cases that are less serious, where there is nearly total recovery within a couple of months. Aggravations of such conditions as bronchitis are part of this range.

If you or a loved one has suffered from any of the injuries discussed above, and someone else was at fault, contact us today.

Thank you Megan for all your hard work, your very professional and patient. Very polite i don't think the outcome would have been the same without your help.

Excellent in all areas and i would say that Goldman Knightley are the best solicitors!  I am so grateful.

Involved a slipping incident in a well know superstore.  Liability was disputed however we still managed to achieve to recover £10,000.00 for her injuries which involved soft tissue injuries to her back and shoulder.



Very professional and sympathetic to my case. The case manager got the ball rolling right away and made sure I was cared for in any way they could. I was impressed with the level of communication as well as their commitment to getting me healthy again and fairly compensated

The legal Personal Injury Lawyers handled my situation in a professional and timely manner. They quickly returned phone calls. They responded to texts and emails with a seeming sense of urgency. Communication right? It was peaceful to be kept informed and up to date on the status of my case. I received a fair settlement for my damages. I would recommend them to anyone!

I called numerous times throughout my case to get information and I always felt like I got all the information I asked for. Though these things take a long time to resolve, it felt good to not feel forgotten throughout the process. Great place and grateful for the job they did for me.


I was in a minor collision that caused major lower back injury. Goldman Knightley handled everything very well as far as setting up appointments during the 5 months of physical therapy I went through. It was a long journey, but the few times I called with updates, they were good on returning those calls. I was happy with my choice to use them.


This firm was, without question, the most helpful after having my accident. They remained in contact with me through the entire process and made sure all my questions were answered. I'm sure I was a little annoying with how often I wanted updates but they were patient with me and I would definitely go back to them.

I am so happy I contacted Goldman Knightley, I got rear ended and didn't know what steps to take and as soon as I contacted them it was so easy. They made sure everything was taken care of and I got back everything I deserved and some. Very friendly staff. I would definitely recommend to anyone in need of their service.
