Pleural thickening compensation

Woods Law secures compensation for a man who suffers from asbestos disease.

Woods Law secured substantial compensation for a man who developed diffuse pleural thickening as a result of exposure to asbestos working alongside laggers for Richard Crittal & Company Limited and Norris Warming Company Limited.

What is Pleural thickening and asbestos?

Pleural thickening, also known as diffuse pleural thickening (DPT), is a lung disease in which extensive scarring thickens the pleura, the thin membrane that covers the lungs. As the scar tissue grows, it can encase the lung and close off the space between the lungs and pleura. The condition, one of the most commonly diagnosed signs of asbestos exposure, may cause chest pain and a significant decline in breathing function.

Although the cause and severity of the condition can vary, it is often the result of prolonged exposure to asbestos. When we inhale asbestos fibres, they can become embedded in the pleura. There, the fibres can trigger an inflammatory response that causes the progressive buildup of fibrous scar tissue.
