Total and Permanent Disability Insurance | unable to work due to illness or injury
Have you sustained an injury or illness that has rendered you unable to work? Consideration should be given as to whether your superannuation fund (or funds) has an attached insurance policy for total and permanent disability. This type of insurance cover may be available regardless of the amount of contributions that you or your employer has made to the fund during the term of your membership. Further, you may also have a relevant personal policy in respect of income protection or sickness and accident insurance.
If you are facing the prospect of being unable to work due to a physical or psychological injury or illness, McColm Matsinger Lawyers would be happy to assist you during this very difficult time and take steps to determine whether you are entitled to insurance payments and if so, make a claim on your behalf. Often, insurance companies are difficult to deal with, resistant to a claim or employ delaying tactics in respect of determining your entitlement. We would not hesitate to fight strongly for your rights; rights which need to be determined in a timely manner. We operate on a “no win no fee” basis which means that if you do not receive an insurance payment, you will not have to pay our fees.
Further consideration should also be given as to whether your injury or illness was caused by someone else’s negligence. We can also advise you in respect of workers’ compensation claims, motor vehicle accidents and public liability claims. Again, we operate on a “no win no fee” basis.
Because every person’s potential claim is unique, our senior personal injuries solicitor would be pleased to discuss your individual case with you. Call us now for an informal “no obligation” chat. We are here to help you.
