Slater & Gordon has the largest asbestos practice in Australia. For more than 20 years our lawyers have seen at close hand the atrocious human cost of asbestos-related disease and the progress of an epidemic which shows every sign of escalating. Asbestos has caused the death and suffering of thousands of Australians. The terminal cancer, mesothelioma, occurs solely through exposure to asbestos. Other asbestos-related diseases include lung cancer, asbestosis and pleural plaques. Moreover, the lengthy time between asbestos exposure and the first appearance of disease symptoms means that the personal toll is expected to continue growing for many years. The right to claim damages for asbestos-related diseases has largely been established as a result of landmark cases fought and won by Slater & Gordon that have redefined the compensation benefits paid to victims of asbestos exposure and their families.
