Exposure to high levels of dust, such as asbestos and crystalline silica continues to be a large-scale problem affecting people in Queensland. Those affected can seek assistance from our firm, which specialises in Queensland Personal Injury Legal Services.
Asbestos is a natural mineral fibre that was used in numerous Australian building products in the 1900s. Silicosis is a type of pulmonary fibrosis, a lung disease caused by breathing in tiny bits of silica, a common mineral found in sand and many types of rock.
Stonemason and other people associated with the industry are especially susceptible to this disease and there are now cases of this.
We are now aware that asbestos fibres and silica dust can get trapped in the lungs and cause scarring and inflammation, which can affect breathing and lead to serious and irreversible health problems, and diseases emerging every day.
You may have a claim for compensation if you have an asbestos-related disease such as mesothelioma, asbestosis or silicosis. Our QLD & Brisbane injury and accident lawyers are well-equipped to bring lawsuits against your employer, or against your landlord if you lived in a building that did not comply with state asbestos regulations.
Any person who may have come into contact with asbestos or silica dust. This is usually trade-based workers, such as builders, asbestos insulation workers, carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and sheet metal workers may be affected by asbestos disease and silicosis.
