ASBESTOS COMPENSATION

Australia enacts new compensation laws for asbestos-injured workers

Victoria, Australia will introduce new compensation laws for workers who develop asbestos-related diseases, according to SafetoWork.com on May 27, 2008.

Under the country's current system, someone with asbestosis who has received an asbestos award may not seek further compensation if the disease develops into mesothelioma or another type of asbestos-related cancer.

According to that government, the new legislation will implement changes to the law.

Using asbestos in Victoria was banned in 2003, but builders and other workers remain at risk of exposure to asbestos when working in buildings that were constructed using asbestos before that time.

Weitz & Luxenberg is a leading plaintiffs' law firm that has represented people affected by mesothelioma for over 20 years. Men and women diagnosed with mesothelioma or lung cancer caused by asbestos exposure may be entitled to compensation from the companies responsible for their disease.

If you would like a free consultation or more information about your legal options from a mesothelioma lawyer, please complete the form on this page, and a representative of our law firm will contact you as soon as possible.
