How much does it cost to make a claim for pleural thickening?
When you make a pleural thickening compensation claim with Thompsons, we won’t charge you a penny for legal advice or representation - whether you win or lose.
The only charge we must pass on to you by law is for an insurance policy to underwrite your claim. If you win your claim, the cost of the insurance policy is paid from your compensation. If you don’t win your claim, then you won’t have to pay anything – similar to a no win, no fee agreement, but without any legal fees.
If you belong to a trade union, we advise you make your claim through your union’s legal service. Trade union members don’t have to pay for the insurance policy and therefore keep 100% of any compensation awarded.

Most people are exposed to asbestos in the workplace, but this isn’t always the case. No matter how or where you were exposed, you still may be able to make a claim.
It helps if you know when and where you were exposed to asbestos, but we know that isn’t always possible, as it can take decades to develop an asbestos-related condition.
Our specialists have built up the largest asbestos register in the UK, which contains details of when and where other claimants have been exposed. We will use this unrivalled experience to help you identify the source of your asbestos exposure and find out how you were exposed. We will also be able to use our register to identify any potential witnesses to help support your claim.
If you were exposed to asbestos while working for a company that no longer exists, you can still make a pleural thickening compensation claim. We will work to track down the company’s insurer who will pay out for a successful claim.
