Pleural Plaques Compensation Claims
Get help claiming the compensation you deserve with The Compensation Experts. We work with the country’s leading specialists in claiming compensation for pleural plaque and other asbestos-related illnesses.
UK compensation law for industrial illness means that it is only possible to make a pleural plaques compensation claim in Scotland. However, that does not mean that if you live in England, Wales or Northern Ireland that you cannot request damages if you have diseases or injuries related to asbestos, such as scarring on the pleura. Talk to The Compensation Experts to find out more about how our specialist compensation solicitors can assist you.
Claiming Compensation for Pleural Plaques
Since 2011, it has only been possible to claim compensation for an asbestos-related illness which developed after exposure to asbestos in Scotland. Victims in other parts of the UK are currently being denied the right to claim damages. If the law changes, you can trust that The Compensation Experts will be there to support you.
Working with our compensation lawyers in Scotland, we will investigate the history of your illness to see whether your employer was lax in the way they protected your health and whether you have legal grounds to claim compensation.
Pleural plaques result from scarring caused when a person inhales damaging asbestos fibres into their lungs. The fibres get stuck in the membrane between the ribs and the lungs, known as the pleura, resulting in hard scar tissue forming.
Although you cannot currently apply for payment of damages for injury incurred outside of Scotland, it may be possible to claim compensation for asbestos-related illnesses including pleural thickening, asbestosis and Mesothelioma.
Because they have no symptoms, pleural plaques can be undetected for decades and are usually identified only when a patient is having x-rays or a CT scan because they have presented with symptoms of another condition. They are benign and, on their own, do not cause any health issues. In Scotland, it is enough just to have pleural plaques to apply for payment of compensation. However, in England and Wales, victims must be suffering from another asbestos-related illness to be eligible to claim.
