Pleurisy Lawyers

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.

As a Common Early Sign, Pleurisy Often Occurs before Mesothelioma

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

Consultation & Advice

If you have a history of asbestos exposure and were diagnosed with pleurisy, we strongly encourage you to seek a second opinion. Asbestos-related diseases are often misdiagnosed due to their ambiguous symptoms and complex nature even by the most experienced specialists. Moreover, because mesothelioma is a rare form of cancer, it can easily be overlooked. Being assigned an incorrect diagnosis will not only have terrible implications for your health, but it will also prevent you from recovering the compensation you deserve.
