Your Asbestos Disease Solicitors

Always approachable and highly regarded by thousands of satisfied clients, we will tirelessly work to achieve the best possible result for you.

What are Pleural Plaques?

Pleural plaques are patches of scar tissue. They’re a telltale sign that you’ve been exposed to asbestos.

Typically you will experience no symptoms as a direct result of pleural plaques.

The big danger with pleural plaques is that as they show you’ve been exposed to asbestos, there is a real risk that they will develop into a more serious and potentially fatal asbestos related condition like mesothelioma.

The Courts in Northern Ireland have recognised this danger and decided, unlike in England & Wales, that you can claim compensation following a diagnosis of pleural plaques.

In 2015 we acted for the widow of a man in a ground-breaking Court of Appeal case which provided guidance on the level of award available for pleural plaques sufferers under the current legislation.

If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with pleural plaques and your exposure to asbestos was the result of workplace exposure, you are entitled to compensation.
