Causes of Pleural Thickening

  • Exposed to particles of asbestos dust
  • Inhaled over a period of time at work
  • Developed pleural thickening
  • Worried about the future
  • Facing ongoing medical costs
  • Need expert legal advice

Pleural thickening is most commonly caused by being exposed to particles of asbestos dust. Asbestos was heavily used in the construction and mining industries and as a result over half of all people know to have inhaled asbestos dust over a long period of time end up developing pleural thickening. Pleural thickening is caused when particles of dust are inhaled and result in causing widespread scarring along the lining (the pleura) of the lungs. Whilst in some cases pleural thickening can be relatively harmless in other cases it can be a debilitating disease.

The main symptom of Pleural thickening is shortness of breath. Pleural thickening is not as serious as asbestosis or mesothelioma, however it is often a sign of exposure to asbestos. Russell Worth solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation. We will:
