We received a call from a Norfolk man who wanted to make an asbestos claim after he was diagnosed with pleural plaques just six weeks earlier.
The man, who worked as a window fitter throughout the 1980s, found out by chance that he had developed pleural plaques after being involved in a car accident. He sustained damage to his chest when his car was involved in a collision. When taken to hospital he was given an X-ray to check for internal damage and this revealed that he had pleural plaques.
His doctor gave him some information about his condition, and when he discovered that some people had made successful industrial disease compensation claims for pleural plaques, he contacted us.
We put him in touch with a lawyer who specialised in industrial disease claims, who talked him through the claims process, plainly and clearly. He decided to go ahead and made an asbestos claim against his employers for the distress that the pleural plaques had caused him and was awarded £16,208.
Do you suffer from an asbestos related disease?
The law has recently changed, and unfortunately, you aren't currently able to make a personal injury claim if you are suffering from pleural plaques. However, your exposure to asbestos may put you in danger of contracting other asbestos-related diseases which you are able to claim for; pleural thickening, asbestosis, lung cancer and mesothelioma.
By getting in touch with the YouClaim team, we can help you to gain the compensation that you deserve. The specialist team of solicitors we work with have many years of experience in the area of asbestos-related diseases, and have secured their clients millions of pounds in compensation to date.
