TPD & Workers Compensation Claim for a Hospital Cleaner
We have been successful in a TPD claim for our below client.
A TPD Claim (Total & Permanent Disability) is when a worker has been injured and can no longer do the work to the level that they were once able to (nor are likely to ever be able to work to that capacity).
A TPD claim could entitle you to a lump sum payment if you have suffered an injury or illness that prevents you from returning to work in the same capacity. Such a benefit payment could cover medical costs (now and in the future), cover accrued debts and could provide you with a source of income to assist in day-to-day expenses for you and your family.
The Walker Law Group team have also been successful in a Workers Compensation claim and are now running a Personal Injury Damages claim for our client who has left us a kind message of appreciation below.

Does this case sound familiar? If you think you would like to make a similar claim, there are a few things you need to consider.
- Level of disability – Are you suffering a minimum level of disability? Are you able to continue to do your job in the same capacity? Or are you able to work at all?
- Your superannuation fund – Was cover is included in your superannuation policy?
- Length of time / Waiting periods – Policies may require a waiting period after the date you sustained injury. So they can better determine the full extent of damage your injuries have caused.
- Employment history – There may be a minimum requirement of employment before you are eligible to seek a TPD payout.
