Pleural thickening claim

Pleural thickeningWoods Solicitors won a claim for a lagger who had asbestos related lung cancer and pleural thickening as a result of exposure to asbestos with Joseph Nadin, CEGB, Kitsons Insulations, Newell Insulation, Darlington Insulation and Andersons Insulation.

 

Pleural thickening

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.
