Silicosis lung disease
Claiming compensation for silicosis lung cancer
Maurice Blackburn offer legal advice and law services for people suffering from silicosis lung disease. If you suffer from silicosis which you believe is a result of workplace exposure, our occupational diseases lawyers can help determine if you have a claim.
Silicosis is a lung disease caused by the inhalation of crystalline silica. Exposure most often occurs in the workplace, such as in the mining, construction and demolition industries.
If you have worked in an environment in which you were exposed to silica dust and have developed silicosis, Maurice Blackburn can assess whether you have a claim.
