Pleural thickening claims

Unfortunately many people working in Scotland were exposed to asbestos throughout the twentieth century.

Pleural thickening is like other asbestos-related conditions, in that it can be many years between a person being exposed to asbestos dust and symptoms of pleural thickening developing.

Our asbestos disease solicitors are leading the way in securing asbestos victims rightful compensation. Recently we won a landmark ruling setting a new level of compensation for our client William Wales, a pleural plaques sufferer.

We are here to guide you through the compensation process and through our no win no fee funding model, Compensate, secure the maximum level of compensation possible.

If you, or a family member, has developed pleural thickening as a result of asbestos exposure, call us on 0141 352 6215 to find out how we can help.

What is asbestos-related pleural thickening?

Asbestos-related pleural thickening is a scarring and hardening of the pleura, which is the membrane which protects the lungs from damage by the ribs during the act of breathing, that can be caused by exposure to asbestos dust.

The scarring and hardening happens when asbestos dust is inhaled and the asbestos fibres in the dust became lodged in the pleura, making it difficult for the lungs to expand properly, causing breathlessness.

Sadly, this is an irreversible condition and can become progressively once over time after being developed. Like other asbestos-related conditions, it can be many years between a person being exposed to asbestos dust and symptoms of pleural thickening developing.

What are the symptoms for pleural thickening?

Pleural thickening does not present as a definite list of symptoms.  However, sufferers may notice increasing breathlessness, reduced chest wall movement when breathing, chest pain and persistent cough.

Exposure to asbestos dust is not the only cause of pleural thickening. The condition can also be caused by infections, injuries, blood clot in the artery of the lung and the early development of some types of tumours.

Making a pleural thickening claim

We appreciate that developing an asbestos related condition like pleural thickening can be a very anxious and difficult time.

Our solicitors have experience with working for many asbestos victims and understand the impact this disease can have on individuals and their families.

We are here to help guide you through the process of making a claim without adding additional worry or stress and we have the expertise to secure the maximum level of compensation that you and your family are entitled to.
