About Arnold Thomas & Becker
Arnold Thomas & Becker specialise in injury compensation as we believe health is a significant factor in the quality of life, and those who have suffered negative experiences that result in any kind of ill-health deserve justice. By working to obtain a favourable sum of compensation, we hope to make the lives of those dealing with health issues much more manageable.
This has been our focus and passion for over 50 years, and we do not act for defendants, insurers, or corporations. As the fifth largest plaintiff personal injury law firm in Victoria, our ‘no win, no fee,’ policy takes the stress out of an already difficult situation for our clients.
To make things even easier, we fund our clients’ claims with no interest as we have genuine concern and empathy for those seeking compensation, especially when it comes to such severe situations as asbestos-related illness. If you don’t win your case, there are no out of pocket expenses.
How Arnold Thomas & Better Can Help You
It is important to note that relatives of someone who has passed away from an asbestos-related disease can still make a claim for reparations on the deceased’s behalf.
Settling asbestos compensation claims are not set to a specific timeline; however, asbestos-related impairments have their own particular circumstances and urgency. It is important to note that settlement times can greatly depend on the legal process. However, we have been able to expedite settlements in short time frames where needed.
The main points of difference in working with Arnold Thomas & Becker, along with dedication of a senior partner and our no win – no fee process, is the ease of possibility for a generous settlement. Our no win – no fee structure presents a no-risk situation for our clients with an added 10% fees cap on all successful outcomes.
We do whatever necessary to make this complicated situation simpler for you, even if it means visiting you at home or hospital. We’re happy to come to you to save you the hassle of visiting our offices if you are too unwell to travel.

Our priority is to settle out of court; however, if we feel the offer you receive is not fair, then we will fight for you in court. We can also advise if you are eligible for benefits from Centrelink, WorkCover or your superannuation policy to ensure you receive all financial support available to you.

Your health should be your top priority, and financial compensation allows you more time to focus on that. Our team are well versed in the difficulties of asbestos disease and will do whatever they can to make the claims process as easy as possible without disrupting your health needs.
You may be eligible for asbestos compensation if you suffer the following respiratory and gastrointestinal diseases, regardless of whether or not you are a smoker:
- Bronchopulmonary dysplasia
- Lung cancer
- Asbestosis or asbestos-related pleural diseases
No matter if you are still currently employed in the role or with the business that led to exposure or you were/are a self-employed/contractor, or even if you were not exposed at work doing home renovations, you can still claim. The law dictates that you may be eligible for a compensation claim for the pain, shortened life expectancy, medical expenses, and loss of wages that you have experienced as a result of asbestos exposure.
In the 1980s, our client demolished a garage and granny flat that had been constructed many years earlier at the rear of his property in suburban Melbourne. Unaware of the dangers of asbestos, our client did not wear a mask as he cut and broke apart the cement sheet of the buildings. Decades later, at the age of 73, our client was diagnosed with Mesothelioma. A claim was made against the manufacturer of the cement sheet and settled for $425,000 plus costs.
Another client suffered asbestos exposure at his work from 1955 until 1986. He worked on Government projects for large scale domestic builders, and on small home renovation jobs and used numerous types of asbestos products, including cement sheet, artificial brick cladding, and corrugated roofing. He was diagnosed with Mesothelioma at age 78. Our client and his family obtained $1.05 million dollars plus costs.
