If you are suffering from occupational asthma or a lung disease as a result of work, it’s possible you may be able to lodge a WorkCover claim for compensation. If you have a pre-existing condition that was made worse by work, it’s also possible you may have a claim.
Shine Lawyers are expert WorkCover lawyers and we can help you determine your rights and entitlements under Australian law. As part of our service offering we provide all WorkCover compensation claims services on a No Win No Fee* basis, which means you don’t have to pay our legal fees unless we win your claim at the end.

We understand that for many, the legal process can be daunting. The video below provides a simple, step-by-step guide to the process for bringing a claim for compensation with Shine Lawyers.
How WorkCover compensation gets calculated
Depending on the nature of your occupational asthma claim, a monetary value is usually placed on the gap between your predicted life path before the condition, and your actual life path since.
