If you are suffering with pleural thickening as a result of being exposed to asbestos during your lifetime, our expert pleural thickening solicitors can help you make a claim and get the compensation you deserve.

Pleural thickening is a lung disease which results in extensive scarring and thickening of the lining of the lungs. As the rigid tissue grows, it becomes harder for the lungs to fully expand, which can result in intense chest pain and difficulty breathing for the sufferer.

It is often a result of prolonged exposure to asbestos, with symptoms typically developing over 15 to 20 years later. As asbestos was widely used in the construction of public buildings, pleural thickening can affect any number of people.

Our pleural thickening solicitors can still help you pursue a compensation claim against the relevant insurer even if your employer is no longer in business. In some cases, it is also possible to make a claim if a family member has died as a result..

Our legal help and advice is available on a ‘no win no fee’ basis and, unlike many other pleural thickening solicitors, we do not deduct a success fee from your compensation. This means you won’t pay us at all unless your pleural thickening claim is successful and, when you receive your payment, you keep 100% of it.
