Melanoma lawyers in Queensland

Claiming compensation for melanoma resulting from work exposure

Maurice Blackburn offers legal advice and professional law services for those with occupational melanoma. Our occupational lawyers can help you understand your case and claim the compensation you deserve.

It's no secret that Australia has the highest rate of skin cancer in the world, with around 200 cases of occupational melanoma reported every year. If exposure to sunlight during work has caused or significantly contributed to your illness, you may have the right to compensation.

Industries in which workers typically face overexposure include construction, agriculture, forestry, and work involving vehicles. Outdoor workers in Australia are five to 10 times more likely than indoor workers to be exposed to UV, so they are more at risk of developing occupational melanoma.

If you have contracted melanoma or any other form of skin cancer at work, then you and your family may be eligible to receive compensation.
