Can I claim compensation for Skin Cancers & Melanomas?

Can I claim compensation for Skin Cancers & Melanomas?


If you have been unfortunate enough to contract 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 longer exists;
  • You had sun exposure outside of employment;
  • You were self-employed or worked as a contractor;
  • Have no money to fund a claim.

What costs are involved with a Melanoma & Skin Cancer claim?

Costs involved with Skin Cancer and Melanoma claims

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, so we are not paid until your compensation claim is successful.

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.

In our experience, 98% to 99% of the claims we pursue for our clients can be resolved or settled and without having to go to court or proceed to trial.

Do time limits apply to making a claim?

Are there any time limits to making a claim?


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.

Can I make a claim for a loved one that died from Melanoma or Skin Cancer?

Can I claim for a loved one that passed away from Melanoma?


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 or 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.
