Circumstances qualifying for a claim?

Pleural thickening, or diffuse pleural thickening (DPT), results from prolonged exposure to asbestos. Extensive scarring thickens the pleura (the thin membrane covering the lungs) and as the scar tissue grows, it can encase the lung and close off the space between the lungs and pleura. It can cause chest pain and result in a significant decline in breathing capabilities.

Making a claim

A claim for compensation for your asbestos related illness or injury may be brought against the person or organisation which negligently exposed you to asbestos. There are time limits for these claims after you have been diagnosed, so we will need to work quickly to ensure you get compensation. We will:

  • Explain the time limits and process to you
  • Work swiftly to ensure you receive compensation
  • Notify your claim to your former employer
  • Obtain an independent expert medical report
  • How we can help you

Our teams have been successfully pursuing claims for 38 years. We’re the London law firm that gets results. Our specialist skills, experience and efficient stream-lined procedures allows us to deal with your claim quickly and effectively.

We’ll take the worry out of fighting back by:

  • Arranging early rehabilitation and any treatment required

  • Move forward promptly to help you gain the compensation you deserve
