Pleural Thickening Claims

Rogers & Norton Solicitors in Norwich are experts in handling cases relating to asbestos disease and can assist you in pursuing your claim.

Pleural thickening, also known as diffuse pleural thickening (DPT), 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.

Pleural Thickening Symptoms

  • Coughing and sickness
  • Pain in the side of the chest
  • Shortness of breath


If you are experiencing any of these symptoms please seek medical advice immediately.

Our experienced team are ready and waiting to speak with you to discuss your potential claim.  Contact us on 0800 7834035, email web@rogers-norton.co.uk or fill in our on line enquiry form.
