How A Silicosis Attorney Can Help
When someone is exposed to silica dust it can cause inflammation of the lungs, known as Silicosis.
Silicosis can cause irreversible damage to the lungs and, unfortunately, there is no treatment for silicosis other than a lung transplant.
There are different forms of Silicosis including:
- Acute silicosis (Brief exposure to a large amount of silica dust)
- Accelerated silicosis (Three or more years of moderate to high levels of silica dust exposure causing inflammation and scarring)
- Chronic silicosis (Long term exposure to lower levels of silica dust causing fibrotic nodules and shortness of breath)
With a solid understanding of the legal processes and silicosis compensation, our silicosis attorneys can help determine what compensation you may be entitled to.
This may be through workers compensation, superannuation benefits or common law to compensate for the loss of income, medical costs, the impact on your enjoyment of life and other out of pocket expenses.
By gaining an understanding of where, how and when the exposure occurred, our silicosis attorneys will be able to advise you on the best course of action to take to achieve the best outcome for you.
We understand that it can be difficult enough to deal with the effects of silicosis without having to navigate what can sometimes seem a confusing and daunting process.
Our team is here to take some of the pressure off and, importantly, ensure you get the compensation you are entitled to.
