What is Pleural Thickening?

Pleural thickening is the scarring and fibrosis of the pleura, the double layered membrane which surrounds the lungs and lines the inside of the rib cage. When the lining of the pleura thickens, it loses elasticity which can cause a feeling of breathlessness. Almost all cases of Pleural thickening are linked to exposure to asbestos dust.  

Who is at Risk?

Anyone that has been exposed to airborne asbestos dust for a prolonged period may be at risk of developing diffuse pleural thickening. The solicitors at the asbestos claim centre have helped clients claim compensation for pleural thickening that have worked in many different trades, including plumbers, laggers, electricians and maintenance engineers.
