Legal Support

Peer Support

When you are first diagnosed with any major illness particularly one which is permanent and life altering such as Mesothelioma or Asbestosis, legal issues can seem unimportant.

However, understanding the legal issues faced by you and your family can make a difference.


You may want to think about:

  • accessing superannuation and insurance;
  • protecting your assets for the benefit of your family;
  • arranging Enduring Powers of Attorney and Advanced Health Directives;
  • managing changes to your work; and
  • accessing all available financial and other support.

Often time limits apply to such claims. There should therefore be no delay in seeking advice about claim entitlements.

Contact AMAA on 1800 017 758 or send us an email on if you would like further information about the above areasĀ as we will be able to put you in contact with specialist advice, as in all aspects of asbestos disease, is essential.
