Making a mining illness compensation claim

If you believe you are suffering from an illness which is likely to have been caused in some part by mining you may be entitled to compensation. If you have a relative who has passed away who suffered from a mining related illness you may also be able to make a claim on their behalf. In either case your next step should be to discuss a potential claim with a specialist mining compensation lawyer.

Only accredited specialist mining illness lawyers are listed on this page.

It is strongly recommended that you should consult with two or three accredited injury lawyers before making a decision on who to instruct.
