Claiming compensation for occupational disease
Occupational diseases and illness include:
- Black lung & coal worker's pneumoconiosis
- Occupational melanoma
- Silicosis lung disease
- Industrial deafness
If you have been diagnosed with an occupational disease owing to your employer's neglect, you may be able to claim compensation. Safety regulations and workplace legislation state that employers should follow the appropriate precautions and procedures to protect employees.
If you have worked in an industry in which you were exposed to a toxic substance or harmful dust, contact Maurice Blackburn to speak with specialised lawyers who can help you to understand your case.
