Pleural plaques compensation claims

Digby Brown are leading the way in getting full and fair compensation for people affected by pleural plaques.

We recently won a landmark case on behalf of William Wales, who was diagnosed with Pleural Plaques after being exposed to asbestos through working as an electrician.

Mr Wales was awarded nearly £8,500 in provisional damages. This is more than double the amount of compensation generally provided for by the voluntary framework agreements currently used by some legal firms and insurance companies when assessing claims being made because of asbestos-related conditions.

At Digby Brown, we treat each pleural plaques claim individually and will do everything we can to ensure you receive full and fair compensation using our no win no fee funding, Compensate.

If you believe you have developed pleural plaques as the result of asbestos exposure, call us on 0141 352 6215.

What is pleural plaques?

Pleural Plaques are areas of scarring on the pleura which is the membrane that protects the lungs from damage by the ribs during the act of breathing. The scarring is the result of asbestos fibres lodging in the pleura.

Pleural Plaques does not usually cause breathing disability but can mean that individuals will go on to develop more severe conditions such as Mesothelioma.

Your right to pleural plaques compensation

In 2009, the Scottish Parliament passed an act allowing people who have developed pleural plaques as a result of exposure to asbestos at work to claim compensation.

Although the law was challenged, the UK Supreme Court ruled in 2011 that it was lawful and people in Scotland could claim compensation if they had been affected.

There are strict time limits on pleural plaques claims. We would encourage you to get in touch as quickly as possible if you think you have developed pleural plaques as a result of exposure to asbestos at work.
