Different lawyers charge different amounts. However, you do not have to pay for out of pocket expenses with our team Withstand Lawyers as we have a clear, easy to understand, No Win No Fee Policy. Our No Win No Fee policy means that do you not pay our firm anything unless we are successful in obtaining you compensation.

This includes paying for doctors reports and supporting medical evidence to support your TPD claim.

Remember that these reasons depend on your insurer policy, circumstances and medical evidence They may not be entirely accurate for your claim. You may feel that you have provided all the evidence you could obtain, but it might still not be enough for your insurer to move forward with approving your claim. As your insurer makes the decision, this process can be frustrating. If you are in that situation, you can reach one of our TPD compensation lawyers in Sydney or Parramatta to help you navigate and understand in a simple and straight forward way.
In the event that you are a member of more than one superannuation fund at the time that you have suffered your medical illness or injury, you are indeed able to claim a TPD benefit from each superannuation fund provided you were a member with that superfund at the time of your injury or illness. This is also on the premise that the insurance policies contained within both superannuation funds expressly state that they provide TPD benefits in their cover- so it is very important to check whether you would be covered or not in the event of a illness or injury. As this can be quite confusing, do not hesitate to contact Withstand Lawyers where we break it down for you in simple terms and ensure we can provide you with the best possible outcome.
Yes, however, it is important you understand the basis of you receiving a TPD payout is that you have through evidence been able to establish that you are unlikely to ever return to work. However, that does not mean that if you recover from your injury, whether physical or psychological through treatment or a period of time of good recovery that you are necessarily barred from returning to work because you received a TPD payout. The evidence relied upon was at the time of the assessment and/or at the time of the claim. Where this has not resolved your doubts, our highly experienced TPD lawyers at Withstand Lawyers are more than happy to guide you through what is often regarded as a difficult period in your life after an injury or illness whether its physical, psychological or in may circumstances, unfortunately, both.
