If you’ve been injured or become ill because of the actions or inactions of someone else, you may be eligible for compensation.
A personal injury claim takes action against the person, company or agency responsible for your injury or illness. Specifically, the claim seeks compensation for medical costs, lost income and other resulting costs. The purpose of the compensation is to restore you to your financial position before the injury or illness.
Our expert personal injury lawyers can help you with your claim and guide you through the process.
Asbestos is a natural mineral fibre which was used in more than 3,000 Australian building products from the 1940s until 1985, including asbestos or fibro cement sheeting and heat-resistant clothing. Exposure to asbestos fibres and dust can result in diseases, which usually don’t reveal symptoms until decades later. Maurice Blackburn has a team of dedicated asbestos lawyers who can help people suffering from asbestos-related diseases make a claim for compensation.
