Silicosis lung disease lawyers in Queensland

Claiming compensation for silicosis lung disease

Maurice Blackburn offers legal advice and law services for sufferers of silicosis lung disease. If you have suffered from silicosis as a result of workplace exposure, our occupational lawyers can help you with your claim.

Silicosis is a lung disease caused by the inhalation of crystalline silica. Exposure occurs most often in workplaces, such as in the mining, construction and demolition industries. If you have worked in an environment in which you were exposed to silica dust, we can help determine whether you have a claim, and offer you legal advice.

Employers may be liable for silicosis damages, due to their failure to follow regulations that prevent lung disease. You may also be eligible for compensation from a superannuation or insurance policy, or from a government workers' compensation scheme.

There are no statutory time limits for making a silicosis claim, but following diagnosis you should try to file your case as soon as possible.
