Pleural thickening, also known as diffuse pleural thickening, is a lung disease in which extensive scarring thickens the pleura, the thin membrane that covers the lungs. As the scar tissue grows, it can encase the lung and close off the space between the lungs and pleura.

The condition, one of the most commonly diagnosed signs of asbestos exposure, may cause chest pain and a significant decline in breathing function.

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.

Gotelee’s solicitors are experts in this field, having represented dozens of families. We understand the emotional trauma involved in cases of this kind and pride ourselves on treating our clients with sensitivity.

Our vast local knowledge of how asbestos was used in the region means we can settle most claims quickly and effectively.

Families of victims of asbestos exposure often suffer from financial hardship as a result of the consequences of these illnesses. We can help to ensure that they also receive the compensation to which they are entitled.

No hesitation in recommending the firm.

How can our personal injury lawyers help you with an asbestos claim?

We can advise you as to the merits of your claim at a free initial appointment at one of our offices in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Hadleigh, Woodbridge or Melton.

We can also arrange a home visit if required and offer a fully insurance-protected No-Win No-Fee conditional fee agreement.

We will investigate your case quickly and, where possible, we will obtain an interim payment of damages for you.
