Insurers have failed in their attempt to overturn the Scottish Parliaments decision to legislate to allow victims of pleural plaques the right to claim damages.

The Scottish Courts upheld the Damages (Asbestos-related Conditions)(Scotland) Act.  Many of the biggest insurers including AXA opposed the damages act.

Sadly English and Welsh victims of pleural plaques are still unable to make a claim for damages if they have pleural plaques.
