Pleural Plaques Claims In Scotland

Compensation can be obtained for asbestos exposure resulting in either pleural plaques or asymptomatic pleural thickening.

Compensation cannot be obtained for these in England and Wales, as a result of a Supreme Court decision a few years ago. In Scotland, however, following this court decision the Scottish Parliament passed legislation expressly allowing compensation claims for pleural plaques and other asymptomatic asbestos conditions.

The insurance industry fought against this legislation, however having lost this fight, they now fully accept these claims and sufferers can obtain up to several thousand pounds of compensation for the anxiety and distress caused by being diagnosed as suffering from asbestos-related pleural plaques.

As with all asbestos claims, there is a strict three year rule for raising claims for pleural plaque claims, and therefore the sooner you consult us with your claim the better.
