One of the main causes of diffuse pleural thickening, a lung disease that entails extensive scarring of the pleura, is asbestos exposure. People who handled asbestos in industrial settings or in the military during the last century have the highest risk of developing diffuse pleural thickening today.
It is noteworthy that this lung disease takes between 10 and 40 years to develop, as the asbestos fibers the person inhaled gradually cause inflammation and tissue scarring. The pleura is the thin layer of tissue that covers the inside of the ribcage, as well as the outside of the lungs.
With over 35 years of experience in evaluating asbestos exposure claims, the team of professionals at Atraxia Law is here to make the process of filing a claim easier for you. After you provide us with your employment or military records, as well as with your medical records, we will carefully assess your situation to eventually let you know whether you qualify for filing a claim.
If you are eligible, we will promptly guide you to a lawyer whose main area of practice is toxic exposure so that you can recover the money you deserve. Diffuse pleural thickening, unfortunately, does not make you eligible to file a claim.
