You can only claim compensation for developing pleural plaques in Scotland – not in England or Wales.
In 2011, the House of Lords decided that you can’t claim compensation for plural plaques because they’re symptomless.
The Scottish Parliament reversed this decision. They allowed people to make pleural plaque claims if the asbestos exposure happened in Scotland.
Our Glasgow office can investigate your case and work out how your exposure happened and if there were ways to prevent it. You don’t have to be a current resident of Scotland to make a claim.
Even though pleural plaques have no symptoms, they do mean you were exposed to asbestos and you may feel anxious about your future. If your exposure to asbestos was in Scotland, we can help you claim compensation for this emotional distress.
