I am receiving IIDB for asbestosis. I was assessed at 10% disabled, no idea why only 10% but went along with it. I was also sent a lump sum of £10k, I have no idea what that was for. Now two years later I have been Re-Assessed and am classed as 60% disabled. Will I be receiving another £50k and have you any idea what the lump sums are for.

Cheers Stu.
