Pleural Plaques

Asbestos Illnesses:

Pleural Plaques:

Pleural Plaques are areas of thickened pleura and are often identified following a Chest X Ray. Whilst Pleural Plaques are visible on X Ray, they do not have any physical symptoms and do not cause any disability.

Pleural Plaques are an indicator that there has been exposure to asbestos in the past.

A Judgement made by the House of Lords ruled that anybody diagnosed with Pleural Plaques is prevented from claiming compensation.

However, James Murray Solicitors can advise you on this area and will retain your details on file with no obligation, to ensure that should you go on to develop a further asbestos related illness, you will get the legal support you are entitled to with fuss.

Our Specialist Solicitors regularly review this area and should any changes in law occur, would be in a positon to notify you and assist in pursing a case for compensation in those circumstances.

If there is a change in law or if you do develop a further asbestos related illness such as Mesothelioma, Asbestos Related Lung Cancer, Asbestosis or Pleural Thickening, we will be there to assist.
