Pleural Effusion Lawyers

The accumulation of fluid between the two layers of the pleura is medically referred to as pleural effusion. Although it is present in a wide variety of conditions, such as tuberculosis, arthritis or congestive heart failure, pleural effusion may also be a sign of mesothelioma. Seeking medical assistance as soon as you start noticing the symptoms is crucial, as pleural effusion is a serious condition which could result in a collapsed lung if left untreated.

Pleural Effusion Is a Common Symptom of Mesothelioma

If you have a history of asbestos exposure and you were a smoker, you CAN file a claim to recover compensation.

Consultation & Advice

We highly advise you to seek a second opinion if excess fluid has been found in your lungs and you have a history of asbestos exposure, as this is one of the tell-tale signs of mesothelioma. The progress of mesothelioma is very aggressive and consequently, failing to receive a correct diagnosis will affect your prognosis tremendously. A wrong diagnosis will also prevent you from recovering the financial compensation you are eligible for.
