Landmark settlement in Victorian silicosis claim

Landmark settlement in Victorian silicosis claim

Bree Knoester, Managing Partner of Adviceline Injury Lawyers, has achieved one of the largest results in an impairment benefit claim for a silica dust disease victim in Victoria – a payment in excess of $600,000.00 just for non-economic loss.

Her client, a stonemason, is suffering from silicosis, a condition which occurs through prolonged exposure to silica dust – a mineral present in products used across multiple industries and workplaces.

Bree was one of the first Victorian solicitors to rely on the Victorian WorkCover Authority'Imminent Death Protocols' to expedite a case through the claims process.

For her client, who is in end stage lung failure, this success has meant he can provide financial support to his family at this difficult time.

If you or someone you know has been exposed to respirable silica dust, we invite you contact Bree on 03 9321 9879 to discuss your potential rights and entitlements.

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.
