About TPD Claims
In Australia, you can make one or more TPD claims if you have an illness, injury or medical condition, including mental illness, and can no longer work in your usual occupation. Usually, this is contained within your Superannuation fund, but you may also have coverage through a private insurer. A successful TPD claim through a superannuation policy or as part of a personal injury claim will give you a lump sum payment. Thankfully, a TPD payout can help fund your life until you can access your Super retirement income stream.
100% No Win, No Fee TPD Claims
No win, no fee. It’s a simple idea that can make a big difference for anyone considering making a claim. After all, no one should worry about the cost of pursuing their legal entitlements.
If you think you have the basis for making a Super TPD claim, you are probably aware that most law firms offer No Win, No Fee funding for these types of claims. Running your case costs are deducted from your payout once you have a successful TPD claim.
What you pay for legal services is usually based on the number of hours of work that has gone into achieving your outcome, as well as fees for any medical reports or assessments and other sundry costs.
How Much Does a TPD Claim Cost?
The cost of a TPD claim may vary due to factors including the case’s complexity, lawyer experience, and the work hours required to achieve a successful TPD payout. Injury law firms typically offer legal services on a no-win, no-fee basis, meaning payment is only required when they win your claim. Settlement fees are typically calculated as a percentage of the total settlement amount and can vary by firm.
Unlike other insurance claim law firms, Aussie Injury Lawyers do not charge a percentage of your payout. We charge only for the effort required to deliver a winning outcome, and you will have a capped upfront price before we begin work on your case.
Three Factors Affecting the Cost of TPD Claims
1. Complexity of Insurance Claims
The complexity of a TPD insurance claim calls for further investment of time and resources, which will result in higher costs. Additional medical evidence and expert opinions may be necessary in cases involving multiple injuries or illnesses.
2. Amount of Work
The work hours necessary to achieve success will impact the cost of your claim. Cases requiring extensive documentation and evidence-gathering may take longer than more straightforward cases.
3. TPD Lawyer’s Experience
Your lawyers’ expertise may determine their fees; those with more experience typically charge higher than those without. However, experienced lawyers may be able to handle cases more quickly and cost-effectively.
TPD Claims for Less Than You Expect
Like with most things in life, the cost of legal services varies. You might be relieved that, in many cases, the price of a TPD matter is less than you might expect. Of course, this can depend on your case and situation.
The cost of running a successful TPD claim depends on the simplicity or complexity of your claim. If you have had this type of claim before, you might know that the charges are generally less than for other types of injury claims. Most likely, less than you might expect.
Understanding your TPD entitlements
You’ve probably never needed to use your Superannuation before, and most likely, you have never looked at it in detail. For this reason, many Aussies don’t know or understand the insurance contained within their policy. So why would you understand how to claim against your TPD cover and, most importantly, get the maximum you are allowed? This is where an experienced TPD law firm can assist you.
