Pleural Plaques is the most common type of asbestos related disease and Pleural Plaques are a compensatable injury in Scotland.
The condition is caused when asbestos fibres find their way into the outer layer of the lung, called the pleura. The pleura, thereafter, changes due to the asbestos fibres.
Pleural plaques does not usually cause any physical symptoms but it is the psychological worry of knowing that there is something in your lungs that shouldn’t be there, that you can be compensated for. The condition lies asymptomatic and most people will not be aware that they have the condition until they are being investigated for another chest condition.
If you do not pursue a claim for Pleural Plaques any later claim for another Asbestos related illness, such as Mesothelioma can be time barred. We can cover the whole of Scotland with over 25 specialists in offices in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Inverness, Thurso and Lerwick.
