Pleurisy

processing claims for over 50 years

Pleurisy – also known as pleuritis – refers to the inflammation of the pleura, the thin membrane, which covers the lungs. There are multiple causes of this condition, including asbestos exposure. It is not uncommon for pleurisy to precede the onset of mesothelioma and oftentimes, it co-occurs with the disease. The most common signs of pleurisy are shortness of breath and chest pain.

If you have a pleurisy diagnosis and X-rays showed the presence of asbestos fibers in your lungs, we can help.

Occupational Asbestos Exposure

With a pleurisy diagnosis you will need to travel to our medical facility in Birmingham, AL if you wish to receive compensation. Additional no-charge testing will be required, generally a chest x-ray and a physical exam.
