Pleural Thickening Claims

Thompsons has extensive and unrivalled experience of helping thousands of trade union members with pleural thickening to secure maximum compensation.

Pleural thickening is a condition which can be caused by exposure to asbestos. Symptoms include tightness around the chest and shortness of breath, but the condition can become more disabling and increase the risk of developing into more serious forms of asbestos-related disease.

Trade union members who are experiencing these symptoms and have a history of potential asbestos exposure should speak to their GP.

Like many other asbestos-related illnesses, the symptoms of pleural thickening may take decades to appear.

We are asbestos disease specialists with a long history of supporting trade unions to represent members diagnosed with pleural thickening. We will ensure that, where appropriate, cases for compensation include a provision to secure further damages if members go on to develop more serious forms of asbestos disease in future.

“Thompsons were fantastic. They sat down with me and went through my employment history in detail to help work out exactly when I had been in contact with asbestos and that meant I could make a compensation claim.” Charlie, trade union member
