Why Rightside?

Our Track Record

Rightside Legal lawyers have resolved hundreds of asbestos claims. We have also run claims to trial and to successful verdict in Western Australia and Victoria. Many lawyers claim to be experienced in asbestos matters, but ask any lawyer you consider engaging when they last ran an asbestos claim all the way to a successful trial verdict, and what they got for their client. Most asbestos lawyers haven’t run trials because they settle their claims without going to trial. In most cases, a settlement is appropriate, but your lawyer has to have the experience and skill to run your matter to a successful and appropriate verdict if necessary. Ask them about their trial experience.

Rightside lawyers Michael Magazanik and Grace Wilson acted in the most recent Victorian asbestosis trial to go to verdict: a successful 2015 claim for the family of a man who developed asbestosis after playing in asbestos waste as a boy in the 1950s at the back of the Wunderlich asbestos factory in Sunshine, Melbourne.

In your claim, Rightside Legal will work with you to thoroughly prepare your case. We’ll gather evidence from experts, witnesses, and historical documents. With the right lawyer, asbestos claims move quickly. But in the wrong hands, claims can drag on causing unnecessary stress during what’s already a very stressful period for asbestos victims and their families.

The Asbestos Industry In Australia

Asbestos is a mineral fibre which was widely used in Australia until relatively recently.

Asbestos was found almost everywhere up until the 1980s: in building products, insulation, car brakes, carpet underlay, cinema curtains and in lots of other unlikely places. The lawyers at Rightside Legal have acted in claims where asbestos exposure occurred in all sorts of circumstances: through play on a miniature railway as a child; through renovations in schools, homes and workplaces; through casual summer jobs; through living and working near notorious sites such as the Wittenoom blue asbestos mine.

We know the history of the asbestos industry in Australia and will help you work out how you were exposed if you’re not sure.
