We Lead The Way In Asbestos Compensation Claims

Slater and Gordon has acted for more than 2,500 mesothelioma sufferers during the past 25 years and many others suffering from asbestos related lung cancer and asbestosis.

We resolved the first negligence claims for asbestos sufferers in the 1970's and conducted the first successful asbestos related cancer common law claim in Australia in 1984.

Our history and experience in running asbestos claims means that your case will be handled with skill and deliver you the best possible outcome.

Why It's Important To Get Expert Advice

Our asbestos lawyers have many years of experience in this area of the law, providing you with a personalised service for the best result possible.

Our lawyers have handled many asbestos claims throughout their careers and are highly empathetic, but also understand what it takes to win a claim and have the determination to fight on your behalf.

Above all, we'll work hard and quickly to achieve the best outcome for clients and their families, allowing them to focus on their health and spending time with their loved ones.

Making an Asbestos Claim

If you have been exposed to asbestos and have been diagnosed with an asbestos related disease, you may be able to claim compensation. The vast majority of people diagnosed with an asbestos related disease in Australia have valuable rights to compensation.

To make an asbestos claim, we must:

  • Prove that you have a medical condition caused by exposure to asbestos
  • Establish when, where and how you were exposed to asbestos

Our dedicated team will help you get started with this process.

Our No Win - No Fee* Arrangement

Slater and Gordon's No Win - No Fee* scheme is available for asbestos-related claims. The scheme is designed to help those whose financial circumstances might otherwise deny them access to legal representation.

Under the No Win - No Fee* arrangement, you do not pay for professional fees unless your case is successful. You will receive a document setting out the details of the scheme after your first appointment.
