Pleural Thickening Compensation Claims

Developed pleural thickening as a result of being exposed to asbestos at work? If yes, we can help you make a pleural thickening claim for compensation.

Pleural thickening is usually caused after a person has been exposed to asbestos for a long period of time. It usually develops when the inhaled fibers of asbestos irritate the lining of the lungs and cause it to become thickened and scarred. It can also become widespread and affect the areas close to the lungs.

There are two main types of pleural thickening. These include:

Diffuse pleural thickening – where a large area of the lungs is affected. This form of pleural thickening affects breathing.

Pleural plaques – are small localised areas of the thickening which does not affect breathing.

In most cases, pleural thickening affects both the lungs, but the effect may not be the same on both the lungs. If you have developed pleural thickening, it is important for you to seek legal advice because you may be eligible to make pleural thickening compensation claims. However, it is important to note that a compensation claim can only be made for pleural thickening and not for pleural plaques.
