Pleural Thickening Claims

Pleural thickening can be caused by exposure to asbestos, however, like many asbestos-related diseases, it may not develop until many decades after a person was exposed to asbestos.

Symptoms of pleural thickening include shortness of breath and tightness around the chest. If you are aware that you have previously been exposed to asbestos and begin to experience these symptoms, it is important to seek advice from your GP as an x-ray will help to diagnose asbestos-related diseases, such as pleural thickening.

Pleural thickening is a potentially disabling condition, and can be deeply worrying for sufferers who may become susceptible to other asbestos-related illnesses.

Thompsons has obtained compensation on behalf of hundreds of clients suffering with pleural thickening, often with the provision of claiming further damages should the client develop a more serious asbestos disease in the future. 

"I thank you and your team for the successful outcome of my claim. The settlement was already above my expectations and much appreciated."
