Pleural Thickening Compensation

The amount of Pleural Thickening compensation payable varies widely in each case and is calculated by considering factors including:

  • The severity of the condition.
  • Pain and suffering.
  • The amount of disability the condition causes.
  • Various financial losses.
  • Care costs.
  • Other expenses incurred as a result of asbestos-related illness.

We will claim compensation for all past and future losses including care, loss of earnings and assistance with DIY and gardening etc where appropriate.

The courts give a broad bracket of between £27,450 and £56,000 depending upon the severity of the symptoms and the risks of contracting mesothelioma, lung cancer or asbestosis.

In certain pleural thickening cases we may advise that a provisional settlement be accepted. This allows you to reopen the case should you contract another asbestos related condition however provisional damages cases have a slightly lower value. We will advise you on the best course of action for each individual case.

“ Thank you to Steven [Evans] for his kindness, patience, efficiency and professionalism throughout this process.  I didn’t think my dad would cope well with the requirements but Steven’s calm nature and knowledge made a fairly grim situation much easier to bear.  We contacted other solicitors at the start of this process, and their hard-sell approach was dreadful – thank goodness for you and your team! ”
