Article content

WorkCover

To pursue a claim, it does not matter if the exposure happened decades ago, you changed jobs, you were exposed by multiple employers, your employer has ceased trading, you do not know how or when you were exposed or you were self-employed. You may be entitled to sue your former employers for the Asbestos related disease which you now suffer.

Public Liability

Where your exposure has occurred in non-work related circumstances, for example; in a public place, a construction site, when handling products or goods, undertaking home renovations or upon a rental premises, it is important that you:

  • seek the appropriate medical treatment;
  • keep records and receipts of medical expenses and details of when treatment was received;
  • keep records and details of lost wages;
  • report the exposure to the appropriate body;
  • contact this office to understand further legal rights available.

If your partner or family member dies as a result of an Asbestos related condition arising from their exposure, those dependents may have an entitlement to recover compensation for their economic loss which includes past and future medical and like expenses.
