TPD claims lawyers are specialists in the field of workers’ compensation. They specialize in handling cases where the employee has a physical or mental disability that prevents them from working.

Claims can be made for long-term leave, short-term leave, and permanent incapacity.

The process for obtaining a TPD claim is a difficult and complex one. It requires the claimant to prove that they cannot work or study due to a mental health condition.

The first step of the process is for the claimant to submit an application form and medical certificate, which a TPD assessor will assess. If the assessor agrees that the person meets the requirements, they will be granted TPD status and will receive benefits from Centrelink.
