Pleural Thickening Claims

Pleural thickening is the scarring and hardening of the membrane around the lungs. This can be caused by asbestos exposure and inhaling asbestos dust.

Asbestos fibres can become lodged in this membrane, causing scarring, pain and breathlessness. This is then a condition called pleural thickening.

Sadly, the condition is incurable and tends to become progressively worse over time. It can also be many years after exposure to asbestos fibres before the symptoms of pleural thickening develop. If you have developed pleural thickening as a result of asbestos exposure contact Jones Whyte today.

Making A Pleural Thickening Claim

During the 1960s and 70s, when the dangers of asbestos were being recognised, many companies were still negligent in their use of asbestos. This is why it is important to make pleural thickening compensation claims.

Pleural Thickening Compensation

Negligence on behalf of employers concerning asbestos exposure should not go unpunished. If you have been disagnosed and are suffering from pleural thickening we encourage you to make a compensation claim.

Asbestos Related Diseases

Exposure to asbestos fibres can cause many different health conditions. Indeed, many people may develop multiple conditions caused by asbestos exposure.

Examples of Asbestos Related Diseases

Mesothelioma Mesothelioma is an advanced and terminal lung cancer caused by inhaling asbestos fibers, leading to damage in the lungs and the transformation of cells into cancer. Unfortunately, there’s currently no known cure for this condition.

Pleural Plaques

Pleural Plaques occur when asbestos fibers cause the linings of the lungs to thicken or, in some cases, calcify. These plaques are benign, symptom-free, and cannot develop into cancer. However, they can act as a warning sign, indicating a potential risk of developing other asbestos-related diseases later in life. Since plaques don’t show symptoms, they are often discovered during X-rays or scans conducted for unrelated health concerns.


Asbestosis is a chronic lung disease resulting from scarring of lung tissue due to asbestos fibers. This scarring leads to breathing difficulties and physical pain. Unfortunately, there is currently no known cure for asbestosis.

Asbestos-Related Lung Cancer

This form of lung cancer is caused by exposure to asbestos dust, requiring a higher level of exposure compared to the development of asbestosis. It’s important to clarify that asbestos-related lung cancer is sometimes wrongly associated with smoking. However, even for individuals with a history of smoking, it is still possible to seek compensation for asbestos-related lung cancer.
