Your silicosis compensation solicitors in Brisbane, Gold Coast and wider QLD

Silicosis is an incurable lung disease caused by inhaling silica dust found in various materials like stone, sand, and engineered stone products.

Medical experts believe the recent increase in Queensland tradespeople being diagnosed with silicosis can be linked to cutting and installing engineered or artificial stone products.

Our compensation claim lawyers have significant expertise in recovering compensation for all silica-related conditions.

It’s time to understand your compensation options

If you have been exposed to silica during the course of your employment in Queensland you will usually have three compensation options:

  1. Statutory claim with WorkCover Queensland;

  2. Common law claim against your employer; or

  3. A common claim against the manufacturers/suppliers of the products you were exposed.

Compensation is also available for dependants of persons who have passed away from silicosis, however, strict time limits do apply. Our legal experts can help you choose the best option based on your circumstances.
