Disability Claim Lawyers With Offices In Wollongong, Campbelltown, Dubbo & Parramatta
At Melinda Griffiths Lawyers, we’re a team of experienced TPD lawyers who understand the complexities of disability claims.
If you’ve suffered an injury or illness that has left you unable to work, we can help you make a successful TPD claim. Our negligence lawyers will guide you through the process of establishing that your injury or illness was caused by the negligence of another party.
A permanent disability can have a profound and lasting impact on your life. We value your story and are committed to providing guidance and support throughout the claims process. We provide personalised legal advice to help you understand your entitlements and the types of compensation you may be eligible for.
If you have income protection or lump sum entitlements within your superannuation policy, we can help you understand your rights and entitlements.
Most employees are covered for total and permanent disability insurance through their employee’s superannuation fund contributions. We can advise you on how to access these benefits.
Life Insurance Cover
Life insurance cover can provide peace of mind for policyholders and their loved ones by ensuring that financial support is available in the event of the policyholder’s death. You may also have TPD insurance under a life insurance policy or as part of an EBA or union membership.
Many people are unaware that if you have been injured whether at work, home or elsewhere, or you suffer from an illness that renders you unfit to work, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your total and permanent disability.
Most superannuation policies provide insurance to cover you for injury or illness.
Each policy is different and contains various rights and entitlements. We can provide you with advice to understand your entitlements.
What Do I Need To Make A Claim?
1. A superannuation policy that includes TPD insurance
2. Unable to work due to illness or injury
3. Unable to work for at least 6 months
Each person’s eligibility is different and a review of your policy is essential to determine your legal rights and entitlements.
Personalised Legal Advice
TPD and workers’ compensation claims can be complex, with intricacies including varying definitions of disability, proof of disability, time limitations, coverage limitations, and insurance company tactics. Our experienced compensation lawyers provide personalised legal advice based on the unique circumstances of each case.
We will work closely with you to gather evidence to support your claim. A key part of this is hearing, understanding and valuing your story. Our team conducts thorough investigations to gather evidence, and working with expert witnesses to build a strong case.
