Can I claim compensation for asbestos-related diffuse pleural thickening?

It is possible to claim compensation for all asbestos-related conditions, whether a patient is suffering from aggressive cancers or other long-term debilitating illnesses such as diffuse pleural thickening.

If asbestos victims meet the eligibility requirements, they can also receive compensation for diffuse pleural thickening

Yes, it is possible to claim compensation for all asbestos-related conditions, whether a patient is suffering from aggressive cancers such as mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer or other long-term debilitating illnesses such as diffuse pleural thickening and asbestosis.

Diffuse pleural thickening is a non-cancerous pleural disease that affects only the outer lining of the lung (pleura). The number of cases of diffuse pleural thickening is substantially high and continuously increasing each year, especially because of workplace asbestos exposure that took place several years ago. All of these asbestos-related conditions rarely improve with treatment and can affect you for the remaining years of your life.

You will be able to obtain compensation for all the aspects of life that have been affected by your asbestos-related diffuse pleural thickening, for instance, you may not be able to work because of your condition and you may claim for the loss of your wages. However, certain palliative medical treatment methods are available that relieve the symptoms and make life bearable for the patients. These regular treatment methods are often costly and this makes it important to file a claim and receive the rightful level of compensation for the health damage caused by exposure to asbestos fibers.

Are you or a family member suffering from diffuse pleural thickening as a result of occupational asbestos exposure? We highly encourage you to take legal action immediately. Our diligent attorneys will do all in their power to speed up the legal process so that you will be compensated as soon as possible.
