Superannuation & TPD Compensation Lawyers Cairns

No Win No Fee. No Hidden Costs

If you have been unable to work due to illness, disability, or an injury you may be entitled to claim compensation through your superannuation fund via a total and permanent disability (TPD) claim.

Alternatively, depending on who you work for and your personal circumstances, you may have a TPD insurance policy or an accident insurance policy which you are entitled to claim compensation against.

If you or a family member are unable to work due to illness or an injury, call one of our local Cairns lawyers. We will provide a free, no obligation initial claim assessment to determine whether you have a TPD claim. 

In most cases, we are willing to help you claim compensation under a TPD policy on a no win no fee basis, meaning that you won’t pay us anything unless we succeed in obtaining you compensation.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does a TDP claim take?

Every TPD claim is different, and comprehensively compiling and reviewing any claim can vary in the amount of time it takes from start to finish. Typically, it can take between 3 to 12 months after you submit a claim to your fund/insurer for a decision to be made.

For support with TPD claims in Cairns, speak to our expert compensation lawyers.  

What happens if my TPD claim is rejected?

If you have lodged your TPD claim yourself and the insurance company or superannuation fund has declined your TDP claim, speak to an expert TDP lawyer. We can help you successfully litigate and resolve TPD claim issues.

Often, working with an expert lawyer ensures your claim is prepared properly, helping to reduce possible rejections or requests that may delay your TPD claim.

Can you return to work after receiving a TPD claim?

In some cases, it is possible to return to work after receiving a TPD payout, providing you meet one or more of the following:

  • You are unable to work within your current occupation
  • You are unable to continue to work in your field of expertise in a training or education capacity
  • You cannot complete day-to-day activities

Every Total Disability Claim is different, so it is important to seek advice from a TPD claim lawyer.

What evidence will I need for my TPD claim?

There is always a certain amount of administration that needs to be organised for claims, regardless of the type of claim you are making. For TPD, it will depend on your circumstances but some of the evidence you may need to organise includes:

  • Claim form
  • Certified ID
  • Medical reports and evidence to confirm you are totally permanently disabled from returning to work
  • Clinical notes
  • BAS (if self-employed)
  • ATO records
  • Medicare records
  • Centrelink records
