SOLVING PERSONAL LEGAL MATTERS
Mesothelioma is an asbestos related disease and a form of cancer that affects the pleural lining of the lungs. Mesothelioma can also affect the lining of the abdomen as well as the heart.
There are two main types of mesothelioma known as Pleural Mesothelioma and Peritoneal Mesothelioma.
Plueral mesothelioma affects the lungs and is usually triggered when an individual inhales asbestos fibres. Eventually a tumour develops on the pleura or lining of the lungs which makes breathing very difficult and often very painful. Pleural mesothelioma compensation claims are the most common type of mesothelioma claims that our expert solicitors handle.
Peritoneal Mesothelioma is a less common form of mesothelioma but just as damaging. Individuals diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma suffer from a tumour that develops on the lining of the abdomen (peritoneum). This tumour then prevents the lining from lubricating organs inside the abdomen.
