Charges brought over Hazelwood mine fire

Charges brought over Hazelwood mine fire

Adviceline Injury Lawyers welcomes the news that WorkSafe Victoria will be bringing charges against the operators of the Hazelwood mine, after the 2014 fire that covered much of the La Trobe Valley in thick toxic smoke. The fire, which burned for 45 days, exposed residents in towns including Morwell to hazardous smoke and many residents have attributed an increased local mortality rate to exposure to the smoke. Bree Knoester, managing partner at Adviceline Injury Lawyers, operates our Moe office and specialises in helping people who have developed respiratory illnesses and conditions as a result of industrial or environmental exposure. In addition to the Hazelwood mine disaster, exposure to substances such as asbestos can have a devastating impact on the health of workers and their families. If you or someone you know has developed an illness after being exposed to toxic substances, we invite you to speak with one of our expert injury lawyers on (03) 9321 9988.

No Win, No Fee

If we proceed with a claim you only have to pay legal costs if we are successful in getting you compensation.
