Frequently Asked Questions

  • Skin cancer and Melanoma compensation claims

    Yes.

    If you have been unfortunate enough to have contracted Melanoma, Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) or Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) from workplace sun exposure, we can assist you in claiming funding for treatment, care costs and lump sum compensation.

    It does not matter that:

    • You have left the workforce and are retired;
    • You have no way of proving your workplace sun exposure other than your own testimony
    • Your employer no long exists;
    • You had sun exposure outside of employment;
    • You were self-employed or worked as a contractor
    • Have no money to fund a claim
  • Costs involved

    All Turner Freeman Lawyers offer an obligation free initial meeting to assess your situation and advise you about your legal rights and options.

    Our specialist Skin Cancer and Melanoma lawyers offer “no win no fee” terms, which means we are not paid until your compensation claim is successful.

    In WorkCover claims for Skin Cancer and Melanoma, we charge costs on a lump sum basis – costs are fixed by way of a written agreement at the outset of the matter. There are no charges other than the lump sum set out in our cost agreement, subject of course to our “No Win No Fee” terms.

    In a court action the Defendant (meaning the negligent party sued) will pay the bulk of your legal costs and disbursements. Generally speaking a negligent Defendant must pay 60% to 70% of your legal costs and disbursements on top of any damages awarded.

  • Yes.

    Time limits apply to making claims. You should seek advice from Turner Freeman Lawyers immediately to ensure your compensation entitlements are protected. Failure to do so may jeopardise your claim.

    Our first consultation is obligation free so there is no downside in requesting an initial advice.

  • Yes.

    Death benefit claims can be pursued for lump sum compensation in circumstances where a family member has sustained significant employment sun exposure and been diagnosed with a melanoma or skin cancer which has tragically caused his/her death.

    Again, time limits apply to making these claims and you should seek immediate advice to ensure your compensation entitlements are protected. Failure to do so may jeopardise your claim.
