Missing out! Messed about! What it’s like with asbestosis or pleural thickening in a covid pandemic

Missing out and messed about. All too often this is what it feels like if you have asbestosis or pleural thickening and you are waiting for your claim to benefits and compensation to be decided. And who’s messing them about and making them miss out? You guessed it! The government.

Disabled people have been waiting for around a year to receive benefits and compensation

The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) normally processes Industrial Injuries claims in about nine weeks but we have claimants whio have been waiting for around a year. They’re missing out and being messed about. They should not be let down any longer.
