How Much Compensation For Occupational Asthma
If you have suffered asthma as a result of your workplace environment it is natural to consider how much compensation for occupational asthma.
If you have been exposed to flour; enzymes; latex; colophony in your workplace then there is a risk of occupational asthma if your employer has not provided the necessary health and safety equipment and safeguards.
How Much Compensation Can I Expect For My Occupational Asthma Claim?
Below are some guidelines aimed to provide an idea of the amount of compensation you can expect from your claim for asthma.
If you have mild asthma, bronchitis and/or chest problems because of exposure to harmful substances then your compensation fee will be up to approximately £3,650
If your asthma is regarded as ‘relatively mild’ asthma-like symptoms the fees are usually between £7,600 and £13,700
If your asthma has had an impact on your social life because of bronchitis or wheezing and it is likely that you will have a full recovery within a few years then £13,700 and £18,750 is the usual compensation bracket
If your condition is considered ‘chronic’ and you have had severe breathing difficulties then you can expect to receive around £18,750 and £30,750
£30,750 and £46,900 is the compensation range set aside for cases where there has been permanent and disabling asthma resulting in consistent coughing, sleep disturbances and very restricted limits on physical activities. The ability to work is also extremely prohibitive in these cases
