The following are many of a small number of Australian litigation firms who are acknowledged as being experienced and accredited specialists in the field of asbestos related disease litigation. Lawyers come and go in litigation firms, so you need to do your own due diligence to determine the experience and accreditation of the actual individual litigator you are looking at instructing to run your case [appointing] – not just the litigation firm. We firmly believe it is important that the actual litigator handling your case is not just accredited and experience in asbestos disease litigation, but is someone you can relate to, and gives you a feeling that they are, and will be, there for you throughout the entire legal side of your asbestos related disease journey.
Specialist litigators usually work on ‘common law‘ claims, on a ‘no win, no fee basis’ – in other words you only pay for their time, services and costs if they win your case for you. They normally will often at the same time, also assist with registering you for ‘statutory scheme‘ state, territory or Commonwealth Government based compensation claims [such as the NSW Government’s icare Dust Diseases Care] – if you are eligible. Traditionally the litigators will take instructions at the sufferers home, or if necessary in a hospital – in other words they will come to you.
