If you or a member of your family has suffered as a result of exposure to asbestos, our team of personal injury lawyers can help you claim the compensation you deserve.
Pleural plaques are by far the most common indication of significant exposure to asbestos. Characterized by areas of fibrous thickening on the lining of the lungs (pleura) or diaphragm, the condition typically arises 20 to 30 years after asbestos exposure. The plaques can calcify over time, but they do not cause long-term health problems.
Pleural plaques are benign, which means they are not cancerous. In nearly every case, there are no symptoms, but some patients describe pain or an uncomfortable grating sensation as they breathe.
Because the presence of plaques suggests a significant past exposure to asbestos, mesothelioma or lung cancer may arise later in life.
Asbestos-related illnesses have plagued thousands of lives, particularly here in Suffolk, where workers were exposed to the deadly substance at a number of major industrial hubs, including the
Cliff Quay Power Station, Ipswich Sugar Beet factory and Cranes.
