In the UK, sufferers of pleural plaques brought on by asbestos exposure are unable to take legal action against the parties responsible for their conditions. However, they are now awaiting a decision from the Ministry of Justice that could change that.
In 2007, it was ruled that there should be no more compensation to asbestos disease sufferers. Now, it is expected that the government will allow 5,000 pounds for the 6,500 pleural plaque victims who currently have cases on hold. However, future claims will likely not be accepted.
