In brief: Cause and Effect
Lung disease can be caused by many factors like cigarette smoking, tuberculosis, lung cancer, asthma, and others.
Lung injury could occur from lung disease, trauma to the chest wall/lungs, or inhalation of toxic substance. So, a lung injury can happen from an isolated sudden accident or it could happen as a result of a disease process. I hope this helps.
